Shalom to everyone in Denver at the annual Sports Lawyers Association conference. It has been a few years since I attended the event, which is a great gathering of professionals and students interested in practicing Sports Law.

Make sure to introduce yourself to her if you’re in Denver. Sleepy NBA Playoffs thus far notwithstanding the Celtics/Wizards series. I’m ready for Cavaliers vs. Warriors already, with the hope that Draymond Green and the Warriors win another championship.
