LeBron James Blasts NCAA for 'Rich Paul Rule'

Share

Paul made a different path for himself, as he doesn't have a Bachelor's degree or a degree from a law school.

Among Paul's clients is Oklahoma City Thunder rookie Darius Bazley, who had a message to everyone trying to stop his agent. Anthony Davis, Draymond Green (the guy who just got $100 million from the Warriors) and Ben Simmons are among the others.

Paul, who recently brought his Klutch Sports Group under United Talent Agency, began working with James a couple years out of high school. Other criteria include being certified with the NBPA for a minimum of three years and taking an in-person exam at the NCAA Office in Indianapolis.

LeBron James has dubbed the NCAA's new rule the "Rich Paul Rule", because of the bachelor's degree requirement.

The NCAA sent out a memo to agents earlier this week detailing the "launch of the NCAA Agent Certification Application".

"Did the NCAA specifically have Paul in mind when they set these new criteria?"

The backing of the video game could have breathed new life and cards into its meta without putting the burden on the community. CD Projekt Red eventually spun it off into its own game, so many rightly assumed the same would be true for Cyberpunk 2077 .

Not only does Hazan explain why the rule is bad for young agents, but says it will ultimately hurt the NCAA by driving players out of college basketball. He wrote: "Can't Stop, Won't Stop!"

That led James to tweet out #TheRichPaulRule followed by another tweet accusing an unspecified "They" of being "mad" and "scared".

"In a separate tweet, the National Basketball Association player also wrote "#TheRichPaulRule", to ostensibly communicate suspicion that the NCAA did, in fact, single out Paul with the regulation.

The NCAA attempted to make a major power move in the world of basketball on Tuesday.

Paul, despite being the game's most powerful agent, doesn't boast the typical educational background of most sports agents.
