This afternoon it was reported that the NCAA will enact new rules to which agents can qualify to represent student athletes who want to “test out NBA waters” before making the jump to the pro level.

Many felt the new rules were made against LeBron James close friend Rich Paul, who has become one of the biggest agents in the league but never attained a college degree.

LeBron shared his thoughts on the NCAA’s new rules on Twitter.

Hopefully the NCAA backtracks and doesn’t implement the 4-year degree rule for NBA agents because it’s really dumb.
