Lauderdale, Ira Winderman noted included in the release of EA Sports’ "NBA 2K12" video game “is an alternate-jersey option for the Heat, one never before worn in game action by the team, but one that has been confirmed will be part of the rotation should the 2011-12 season eventually get under way.” The jersey, “a stark black-and-white offering that was utilized on the team’s 2010-11 poster, will be used for a few, select games, with the traditional black and the alternate red uniforms to remain the staples beyond the home whites” (SUN-SENTINEL.com, 10/17).
ON THE GREEN: Golfer Keegan Bradley and Cleveland Golf have agreed to “a multi-year extension,” and Bradley “will play Cleveland woods, irons and wedges as well as a Srixon ball.” He will also "continue using headwear adorned with the company names and logos."
