Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (10/21/2016)

The NBA regular season is about to start as well, with everyone doing their best to knock of the Warriors. We shall see!

This week on Forbes:
(1) This Week In Sports Law: No Derrick Rose Mistrial, Vegas Luring Raiders, Northwestern Tweets;
(2) Mobile Esports Company Reports $50 Million Run Rate; and
(3) AlphaDraft Closes, Marking End For Fantasy Esports?

And as always, the weekly wrap-up:
