Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (6/23/2017)

Happy post-2017 NBA Draft wrap-up of sports biz stories. Shout out to New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft for donating $6 million to create the new Kraft Family Sports Campus in Jerusalem. Big news in the daily fantasy sports world this week (I have a Forbes article below on it) concerning the FTC getting in the way of a FanDuel and DraftKings merger. Quite interesting as we approach the start of the 2017 NFL season, which is where there is most attention when it comes to fantasy.

This week on Forbes:
(1) This Week In Sports Law: NCAA Punishes Louisville, Ole Miss Investigation, Sebastian Telfair Trouble;
(2) Supreme Court Ruling Is Great For Washington Redskins In Trademark Battle;
(3) To Prevent Fantasy Monopoly, FTC Blocks DraftKings-FanDuel Merger;
(4) 8 NBA Jersey Sponsors As Fitbit And Disney Sign On; and
(5) HyperX Selects De’Aaron Fox As Ambassador Ahead Of NBA Draft
