Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (8/28/09)

I am officially done with the first week of my last year of law school.  It feels good to be back in a learning environment after a few weeks off.  I enjoy all of my classes and am certain that I will take away a lot of useful information to help me grow Dynasty and […]

The website, Hoopsworld, is on a mission to list the top 55 most influential people/groups in the sport of basketball.  Yesterday, the site began the rankings by revealing #36-55.  Seven agents are listed in that group; however, the site does put Leon Rose and Henry Thomas in the same slot.  Here are the agents who […]

The NBA Is Losing Its Competitive Edge

Matthew Epps, a Spring 2010 J.D. Candidate (like me) from Villanova University School of Law (unlike me), just received a high honor entering his third and final year of law school; he was published in his school’s Sports and Entertainment Law Journal.  His piece: FULL COURT PRESS: HOW COLLECTIVE BARGAINING WEAKENED THE NBA’S COMPETITIVE EDGE […]

Brandon Brown To Play For BC Siauliai

Sometimes it seems like Dynasty has become a full-service baseball agency, but just because the other divisions may not get as much love on our tweets, Facebook page, or this site, does not mean that they are failing in any way.  We recently struck a strong deal for one of our Entertainment clients, had many […]

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (8/21/09)

Cool video above, right?  Kind of makes me want to get my hair cut with Commissioner Stern.  I am back in Gainesville and ready to begin my final year of classes next week.  I made my schedule so that I have absolutely no classes on Monday, which should allow for a lot of work to […]

Hamilton Gets a New Deal

This is my first coaching contract negotiation piece, ever. Upon researching my topic, I realized that the numbers in coaching contracts get very confusing. So, while listing the different incentives in Florida State basketball coach Leonard Hamilton‘s new contract, I figured I’d explain them a little more in depth: Hamilton will receive a base salary […]

Agent Spotlight: John Greig

Basketball agency, SportsTalent, does not have a working website and does not even have an agency profile at respected basketball website, DraftExpress.com.  But a quick look at the company’s listing on Eurobasket, displays an agency rich with overseas players, a few talented NBDL players, Pops Mensah-Bonsu, and a couple of NBA assistant coaches.  The list […]

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (8/7/09)

Back in Sunny South Florida (as if Gainesville did not feel like 120 degrees this past week).  I’ll be down here for a week and change.  I have some business matters to take care of, and the usual standard doctors/dentist visit.  It’s always nice to spend some time with family as well.  The baseball division […]

Name, Address, And Number, Please

Marc Isenberg, author of Money Players (a fantastic read), wrote a piece last week that discussed summer basketball tournament organizers’ power over NCAA basketball coaches.  The organizers not only make nice profits from the tournaments they host, but also from selling contact information of players who enroll to play.  Contact information is valuable information, especially […]
