Big news this week with Jay-Z bringing his empire into the world of sports representation.  There are a few stories related to that linked below, and many more across the internet.  The Final Four is about to begin, and yesterday I tweeted a few things about Michigan players looking to leave early.  Follow me on Twitter if you need to catch up.  This week on Forbes: (1) Atlanta Hawks’ Dahntay Jones Partners With Harman’s JBL Audio Company; (2) Ohio State Is Elite In NCAA Tournament And Environmental March Madness Competition; (3) Louisville Slugger Announces New Logo And MLB Prime Bat In Advance Of Opening Day; (4) New York Knicks Power Forward Amar’e Stoudemire To Be Featured In Documentary; (5) Jay-Z Gets Into Sports Representation With Signing Of Robinson Cano; (6) Social Sports Betting Platform Favourit Raises $3.6 Million And Releases New iOS App; (7) Former New York Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum To Represent Coaches And Broadcasters; and (8) Project Brand Is The Future Of Minor League Baseball.  Whew…that was a lot.  And now for the weekly wrap-up:
