LeBron James Has A Message For The NCAA After New Rule

There could be some good coming from the new criteria; the requirements aim to add greater protection for student-athletes to ensure they are represented by experienced and qualified agents. Thus, this requirement instantly disqualifies him from representing future student-athletes who wish to test the National Basketball Association waters.
The NCAA seems to have created a rule that is targeted at Rich Paul.
Paul made a different path for himself, as he doesn't have a Bachelor's degree or a degree from a law school. Apart from James, the influential agent also manages top players like Anthony Davis, Ben Simmons and Draymond Green among others.
LeBron James thought the same thing.
The NCAA is outlining new certification requirements for agents to represent players testing the National Basketball Association draft waters. Who knows? It's unclear why the NCAA would specifically target Paul.

Lawmakers will still have to enact additional legislation to determine how and where the money will be spent. Pelosi also made a point of showing she had enough Democratic votes to push it through without their help.
The NCAA will now require agents to have a bachelor's degree, NBA Players' Association certification for at least three years, liability insurance and will have to take an in-person exam at their main offices in Indianapolis, ESPN reported, citing a memo issued to agents Monday.
Agents who meet every requirement besides the three-year NBPA certification can receive an exception if the student-athlete they represented this past spring chose to return to school. Nothing will stop this movement and culture over here.
Paul is a superstar agent who founded Klutch Sports Group.
LeBron James, who is Paul's star client and friend, tweeted support for Paul on Tuesday afternoon.
