You can hate Rich Paul...

But if I was an NBA player, this is who I want representing me. He plays hardball but his clients almost ALWAYS get what they want (contract and situation wise)

Kawhi went to his new team and led them to a championship. Hopefully, Lebron will land another superstar to go with Davis to give him a chance to win another one too. Make it happen Rich Paul!

He lost Nerlens Noel 60 million dollars and KCP had a 70 million dollar deal that got revoked.

Honestly why does someone as good as Davis even need an agent? No contact negotiation is needed since he will get the max. And how hard would it be for Anthony himself to tell ESPN that he wants to be traded and won’t resign with certain teams. I have respect for guys like Ray Allen that did it on their own without an agent.

You win some you loose some.

He got Tristan Thompson 85 million, and an old washed up JR Smith 57 million.

He also got AD on thr Lakers for a worst deal that was offered at the trade deadline.

No its definitely not win some lose some. Those two cases are absolute agent malpractice. You can't lose two clients that much money.

The only deals he has been able to make outside of the obvious max for max players was using LeBron James as leverage to get guys money (Tristan, JR, KCP as a small make up for losing him 10s of million.

If the media didn't have to protect him because of his main client he would be viewed as a joke.

Noel’s agent was Happy Walters at the time of the Dallas offer

He literally wasn't Nerlens Noel's agent at the time. Do some research first before hitting submit next time.

I'll give him and LeBron credit for ruining the NBA.

You're welcome.

How did that work out for Nerlens Noel, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Shabazz Muhammad who turned down huge multi-year contracts?

Rich Paul wasn't the reason for Nerlens Noel turning down the contract


Also KCP got paid for the last two years to be garbage (and a lot of money at that).

I admire Rich Paul for being, what I consider, a true player's agent.

He came from nothing (like most players), and knows their concerns and realities. He's willing to burn all bridges for you.

If I was an NBA player, I trust Rich Paul over a wealthy elitist from familial wealth who got into an Ivy school because of that privilege.
