In a shocking turn of events, the NCAA has decided to amend one of their recent rule changes govern agents. A bachelor’s degree will no longer be a requirement for an agent to represent underclassmen testing the draft process. As long as the agent is certified by the NBPA.
Sometimes in life perception can be a reality, and this concept can be applied to Carmelo Anthony. The 10x All-Star, 6x All-NBA, has scored over 25,000 points and is a bonafide Hall of Famer.
Now, this future Hall of Famer finds without a team as he looks to close out his career on his terms. Anthony has been working out vigorously in hopes that a team will sign him. Skill-wise it looks like Anthony can still score and contribute to an NBA team.
The NCAA announced for no foreseen reason that it will be changing the criteria that an agent must possess to represent an underclassman who wants to test the draft waters.
In 2018 the NCAA already changed the rule allowing for underclassmen to hire an agent and test the waters without ruining their eligibility.
Today it was announced that Rich Paul and Klutch Sports will be joining forces with United Talent Agency. UTA is one of the biggest agency in Hollywood. Paul will be head of the sports division in the company.
It has been reported that Marcus Morris and Nerlens Noel ended their relationship with agent Rich Paul and Klutch Sports.
One takeaway that stood out is how bitter and jealous a lot of former players are of this generation of NBA players. Charles Barkley is at the top of this list. Known as the “round mound of rebound” during his playing days Barkley has to turn into the “loud mouth from Leeds”. Spouting off opinions that are often viewed as honest, real, and straightforward, oftentimes lack depth, knowledge, and are just plain ignorant.
Six days had passed since NBA free agency had begun, and Kawhi Leonard still had not made a decision on where he would be playing next season.
At five pm central time free agency had officially begun, and the leading headline that grabbed everyone's attention was Kevin Durant would be leaving the Bay Area for Brooklyn. Just like that, the Warriors dynasty was over.
Little Caesars Arena in Detroit was the site for the opening night of the Ice Cube’s Big 3 three on three basketball league. The league is starting to really gain momentum, and Season 3 is touted to be the best so far. Several big-name former NBA players will be joining the league this year. Gilbert Arenas, Jason Terry, Lamar Odom, Josh Smith, Will Bynum, Anthony Morrow, and Mario Chalmers just to name a few.
When Kevin Durant made his finals debut Monday night you could not have asked for a better start. The “Hamptons 5” was reunited and the Warriors appeared to be back to their dominant self. Durant made his first three shots and it seemed that Golden State was going to win the game and officially find themselves back in the series. Nine minutes into the second quarter every basketball fans worst fear happened, and Warriors nation collective heart stopped.
