Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (6/30/2017)

Wishing an enjoyable very long weekend for those of you taking Monday and Tuesday off in celebration of July 4 next week. Congrats to Heitner Legal client Draymond Green for winning Defensive Player of the Year. Quite the honor for a man who was once told he was not cut to be an NBA player. Interesting happenings this week in the NBA with Phil Jackson being fired and Chris Paul heading to Houston. The MLB All-Star festivities are coming up in Miami. I probably won’t be going to the game itself, but will absolutely be attending the Home Run Derby. Let me know if you will be in town for any events.
