Shabbat shalom from Chicago, where the annual Sports Lawyers Conference is currently being held.  I did some more TV work this week, appearing on Al Jazeera America to discuss what is likely to be next in the battle between Donald Sterling (and wife) against the NBA.  This week on FORBES: (1) 2014 NFL Draft Dominated By Sports Agency Sportstars; (2) NBA’s Sixth Man Jamal Crawford Starring In Lead Role For New Sportswear Line; (3) Adidas Attacks Running Shoe Business With Pure Boost Release; and (4) 2014 FIFA World Cup Expected To Add $3.03 Billion To Brazil’s Economy.  And as always, the weekly wrap-up:

Basketball

Football

Baseball
