Dick Vitale seems to love music about as much as he loves basketball, which is *really* saying something.
And the latest concert Vitale showed off on social media? Jennifer Lopez in Las Vegas.
Vitale posted a video of Lopez’s show on Instagram, with the caption reading, “Saw the @jlo Show in Las Vegas @planethollywood & she was #awesomebaby Unbelievable staging & what energy!”
Well, Vitale was the color commentator on ESPN for Monday night’s Gonzaga-San Francisco WCC semifinals game in Vegas. And with Gonzaga up 25 points in the final minutes, Vitale decided to tell play-by-play man Bob Wischusen about how much he enjoyed the J-Lo show, and compared her dance and music skills to LeBron James as a basketball player. He also had a little humblebrag about getting a text message from J-Lo’s boyfriend, Alex Rodriguez.
“Let me tell you, when you come back to Vegas, you’ve got to go see Jennifer Lopez. I mean I haven’t seen energy… she is to dance and music what LeBron is to absolute basketball.
And I got a little text message from a guy named Alex Rodriguez. He said, ‘I really appreciated that you said that about Jennifer.’
