Shalom to Amar’e Stoudemire, who is participating in the Maccabiah Games as coach of the Canadian men’s basketball team and is now a part owner of a separate Israeli basketball team.  Last weekend in New York was a blast.  Now it is back to being in Miami and on the daily grind.  I taped an interview with Gregory Reinen of Behind Sports.  We talked about the process of being certified as an agent, contract negotiation tips and how the industry has changed based on Jay Z becoming a part of it.  Check it out here.  This week on FORBES: (1) Sportsdigita Shaking Up Sponsorship Scene With Its Digideck Platform; (2) Ruling Makes It Difficult For Football Agents To Recover Training And Related Expenses; and (3) Ryan Braun’s Suspension Is The Least Of His And The MLBPA’s Concerns.  And as always, the weekly wrap-up:
