    Now..Alex Kennedy is a very bad journalist especially when it comes to his "sources".. but this is a very interesting article he wrote about the inside life of an NBA agent with many anecdotes.

    I remember when cyber was saying here how much crap is going on behind the scenes with the agents going to highschools and paying kids and talks with GMs before FA etc
    But I didn't know that an NBA player apparently needs his agent to even buy an engagement ring or just not to end up in prison. :rolleyes:

    He is frequently singing songs about being a pro role player and a sub par agent.
