I hope that everyone had a fantastic and fun July 4th full of smiles and fireworks.  I, for one, did not even stay awake throughout the entire New York show on TV.  A day full of sun can be quite exhausting.  Jay-Z has a new rap album out with shout outs to Robinson Cano and Kevin Durant.  He also has a quick diss of baseball agent Scott Boras.  The long-time baseball agent responded publicly that he is a fan of Jazz music.  Welcome to the deranged world of athlete representation.  This week on FORBES: (1) Anthony Bennett, Cody Zeller And C.J. McCollum Help Excel Sports Dominate 1st Round Of NBA Draft; (2) San Francisco Giants Enhance Reputation As Digital Leader With Creation Of Social Media Café; (3) Aleksander Barkov, Jonathan Drouin And Elias Lindholm Power Octagon Hockey’s NHL Draft Performance; (4) NHL Draft Used As A Vehicle To Make New Jersey Stronger; and (5) NBA Rookies Will Earn Millions, But Will They Keep It?  And as always, the weekly wrap-up:
