Video: Jay Bilas Offered Humor, Sage Advice With His Commencement Address At Queens University Of Charlotte

Jay Bilas continues to be among the most entertaining and insightful analysts in sports, and he brought his wit and humor to Queens University of Charlotte two weeks ago.

Bilas opened the speech in a way that only he could—with a quote from "urban philosopher" Young Jeezy. From there he went on to be incredibly funny, self-depricating, and more than anything, supportive and inspirational. The biggest nugget advice that he gives comes from current Los Angeles Clippers assistant coach Kevin Eastman, who told a young Bilas to "never turn down a basketball opportunity", and that no job is too small if it puts someone on a path to a career that they love.

Definitely find a free 15 minutes and give the full speech a watch.
