WNBA stars to play Jay-Z, rappers in video


WNBA stars Teresa Weatherspoon, Lisa Leslie and Chamique Holdsclaw will appear in rapper Jay-Z’s next music video “Change the Game.”

The video, directed by David Meyers, who directed Jay-Z’s last video and videos for Pink, Kid Rock and Outkast, was filmed in Los Angeles. The scene featuring Weatherspoon, Leslie and Holdsclaw was filmed earlier this month and shows the players playing against Jay-Z, Memphis Bleek and other rappers. The video should debut later this month or in early January.


SUIT FILED: Former Indiana University basketball coach Bob Knight filed a lawsuit against Converse Inc., claiming the company hasn’t paid his $450,000 promotional fee from the past school year’s contract and the $119,726 owed on this year’s contract before cancellation. Knight’s attorney, Russel Yates, said the company’s financial woes were apparently the reason Knight wasn’t paid. Converse attorney Jack Green declined to comment about the matter but did acknowledge the company was having financial difficulties.


SHULA GOES WITH SHOCHET: Former Miami Dolphins coach Don Shula agreed to serve as corporate spokesman for Shochet Securities Inc., the broker-dealer subsidiary of Shochet Holding Corp. Shochet Securities is a 20-year-old south Florida-based full service discount brokerage firm. This is Shula’s first corporate affiliation outside of Shula Enterprises Inc. in the last five years. Shochet Securities, founded in 1980, provides full-service brokerage services in equity and fixed income securities, options, annuities and mutual funds. Through its recently formed division, Shochet Financial Services Group, the company provides long-term financial planning, retirement and estate planning, investment and tax strategies, and a portfolio of high quality, non-proprietary financial and insurance products. Shula, who currently serves as vice chairman of the Miami Dolphins, is celebrating his 30th year with the team. The two-time Super Bowl winner holds a career record 347 wins.
