The Miami Heat announced on Tuesday that Chris Bosh would be the last player in franchise history to wear #1.

Bosh, the former Georgia Tech standout, joined the Heat in 2010. Bosh would go on to win championships with the team in 2012 and 2013, alongside LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.

Bosh’s career came to an unfortunate and abrupt end, but it’s nice to see his contributions were so greatly appreciated in Miami.

Josh Okogie and the USA U19 team improved to 3-0 with a win over previously undefeated Italy on the Fourth of July. Okogie was 0-7 from the floor, but added two points at the free throw line in addition to seven rebounds in 18 minutes.

The linked article above is an interesting one from the Washington Post, concerning the use of Buzz - a trademark belonging to Georgia Tech - and a high school in Maryland. The story looks at how trademarks can be used at lower levels and the discretion their owners can have when it comes to them.

Have a great Wednesday!
