College and professional football are fast approaching, and soon behind that will come the start of the NBA preseason. Many are very thankful, as this time of the year tends to be slow in TV programming. However, there have been plenty of high profile stories to follow in the dead of summer, one of which being Biogenesis. Anyway, this week on FORBES: (1) How Much Will 49ers Cornerback Tarell Brown’s Blunder Cost His Former Agent?; (2) CEO Brett Yormark Reflects On Brooklyn Nets As Lifestyle Brand, Plans To Turn Up Heat For Future; (3) Springblade Is adidas’ Single Most Important Running Shoe; and (4) MLB Outfielder Jose Bautista Joins Marucci Sports Board Of Directors. And as always, the weekly wrap-up:
