Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (6/8/2018)

It’s been a pretty entertaining NBA Finals, if you’re a fan of the Golden State Warriors or any of its players. The talk is already turning to where will LeBron play next. I seriously doubt he is coming back to Miami. I also think it’s more likely than not that he leaves Cleveland. I would […]

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (7/8/2016)

It still stings. I have justified the loss of Dwyane Wade as a wise business decision for the Miami Heat organization, but I spent 13 years of my life rooting for him as he wore a Heat jersey. I am one of the rare born-and-raised South Floridians. I cheer for the Miami Dolphins and Miami […]

Restructuring Contracts For Less Guaranteed Money

Last week, a guy who used to be a key part of the Green Bay Packers offense took a pay cut with his current team, the Houston Texans.  The restructuring of Ahman Green’s contract made few papers and did not garner much discussion on the airwaves, and quite frankly, it is not something that most […]
