Friday Wrap-Up Headline

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (6/1/2018)

Another NBA Finals and another appearance by my man Draymond Green, so you know I’m cheering on the Golden State Warriors. Staying on basketball, how crazy is this report on the potential connection between Philadelphia 76ers general manager Bryan Colangelo and these Twitter “burner” accounts? As always, sports professor Michael McCann breaks it down really well from a legal perspective. I can’t believe we are already in the month of June, coming up on the 4 year anniversary of me starting my own law firm Heitner Legal. It’s been an awesome ride thus far and I see the fun/positive results only continuing in the future. With Memorial Day Weekend and being super busy with legal work, there wasn’t much new at Forbes or Inc., so let’s get straight to the weekly wrap-up:
