Rich Paul is one of the most famous agents in the world of sports with a long list of famous athletes in his clientele.

Paul, who is a childhood friend of LeBron James and his agent, delivered a strong message referring to the hating Klutch Sports is receiving due to its success.

The agency hosted a live Pro Day for Georgia’s Anthony Edwards and Kentucky’s Tyrese Maxey on Thursday, which was televised live on ESPN2.

In a lengthy Instagram post, the super agent fired back at his haters.

“I want to thank everyone for their support last night, Paul posted. It’s not often you see support like this for these young men coming into the league. This is much bigger than makes and misses! When black it’s discredited, it’s critiqued, narratives are driven,” Paul wrote of the criticisms Klutch Sports is getting around the NBA.

“It’s a shock when the black athlete isn’t making the black agent work for free, or feel as if it’s a privilege to represent them but instead respect their practice and expertise. Why? When is the other way around, the athlete should be lucky to have the agent and every move is genius. Why? Discouragement has killed more people than guns, but it won’t work here. These men are more than athletes, and I couldn’t be more proud to work with them. The old narratives won’t work. Young kids, this picture is what kicking discouragements ass looks like! Keep believing in yourselves, it will happen for you!”

Paul is getting his athletes huge exposure with several basketball events throughout the year and that’s the reason he got a long list of superstars in his list.
