LeBron James Blasts NCAA for 'Rich Paul Rule'

Image Update Le Bron Reacts to the NCAA's New

James' agent Rich Paul, who also represents Ben Simmons, Anthony Davis, Draymond Green and others, doesn't have a college diploma.

"The NCAA has officially added criteria for agents who wish to represent student athletes testing the waters for the NBA Draft", Rothstein said.

The requirement of a bachelor's degree has led some to refer to it as the "Rich Paul Rule".

"Men's basketball student-athletes who are considering careers in professional basketball but who may want to return to school are only permitted to accept permissible agent services from NCAA-certified agents with a signed agent agreement", the memo stated. The new criteria appear to be targeted at Paul, an National Basketball Association superagent, who does not have a degree.

On Tuesday night, James ripped the NCAA for enacting a rule that excludes his friend - and agent - from competing for college athletes. Check out the reactions below. LeBron James appears to think that is the case.

Paul doesn't own a college degree.

The NCAA sent out a memo to agents earlier this week detailing the "launch of the NCAA Agent Certification Application". "Who knows? It's unclear why the NCAA would specifically target Paul", Owens wrote in an article on Tuesday.

Now he's in direct violation of the NCAA's newest rule - if he tries to land a college basketball player as a client. Nothing will stop this movement and culture over here.

Rich Paul not only lists James as one of his clients. It now requires: a bachelor's degree, NBPA certification for at least three consecutive years, professional liability insurance and completion of an in-person exam.
