LeBron James to Leave CAA; Will Be Represented by Childhood Friend Rich Paul
As long as Lebron’s friends are capable of doing their jobs, I see no issues with him trying to keep all his money in house and making sure his friends aren’t just yes men but businessmen.
With “The Decision” behind him, a championship ring on his finger, a second gold medal around his neck and three NBA MVP awards to his name, Miami Heat forward LeBron James is reportedly striking out on his own when it comes to representation.
The Sports Business Journal reports that James and childhood friend Rich Paul will leave Hollywood talent agency Creative Arts Agency, with Paul taking over James’ representation. Paul is currently an agent and his clients include Cleveland Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson, among others.
