LeBron James has experienced a lot of success throughout his career in the NBA. However, a lot of it would have not been possible without his agent Rich Paul. If you have listened to Paul speak, you know that he has an incredible mind for business. Overall, he knows how to protect his players and put them in positions to succeed. LeBron has never been embroiled in an off-the-court controversy, and Rich Paul is definitely a reason for that.

Last night, Paul was profiled by 60 Minutes and as you can imagine, LeBron was very excited about this. "I hope everyone watches 60 Minutes tonight to see the story about my brother Rich Paul and his new book “Lucky Me”. Rich changed the game and now he’s giving everyone an education about who we are and where we come from," LeBron wrote. "The Midwest in the 90’s had so much impact on our culture. Incredibly proud of my brother giving us such an important story.

Amid the special, one fan on social media wrote: "What's amazing about Lebron James is he saw what Rich Paul and Maverick Carter would become before anyone else."
