Kevin Durant Dropping Agent, Could Sign with Roc Nation Sports

Kevin Durant is leaving his representation of Landmark Sports and is expected to join Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports. KD would be the agency’s first NBA player. Currently Roc Nation reps Yankee second baseman Robinson Cano, Jets rookie QB Geno Smith and recently signed Skylar Diggins of the Tulsa Shock. Per the Sports Business Journal:

    Jay z knows nothing about how to go over a NBA contract, it’s so long he will just hire other agents to do it for him lol

    that is the point and that is already well known by the players. his agency works with CAA which is already well established and has some top agents. his name in itself is what attracts players, they know that he doesn’t know anything about nba contracts, running nba teams or producing video games.

    Jay-z is the name of the label. hes got real people working behind the scene doing the actual work.


    which is exactly what a loaded human being should do in every business. with your name & money, you get yourself respectable professionals in their field that makes look good

    I’m simply amazed at the crap people believe about a player they don’t like. lol. LBJ is a beast and would have been an all star during that time. Not the best player mind you but an all star every year-some years 2nd team..hear me out LBJ lovers before you go on a man hunt. The defenses then were much much better team wise and there were really tough individual defenders as well. (each team seemed to have at least one, plus better defensive centers and bigs that helped out.) Being in the East, I believe LBJ would not have gone to the hole as often and as hard because of the beatings he’d get (especially Bad Boy beatings) He is as strong as a mule but wouldn’t like to get hit like he’d get hit then.

    Rodman would have given him trouble and probably pissed him off so much he’d make more mistakes trying to go at him. Pippen would cause problems as well. LBJ would get his points but his rebounds would probably be down. LBJ prides himself on defending the best players so think about him covering Kevin Johnson, T. Hardaway, P Hardaway, Mitch Richmond, Clyde, Barkley, Karl Malone, Wilkins, Worthy, B. King, Bird, McHale, Doc, Andrew Toney etc. Teams would have trouble with LBJ but in the 4th qtr after he got finished chasing and defending, he’d still have to try and score on the Moncrief’s, Oakley’s, Laimbeer’s, Dumars, etc etc. He could do it but not as well (In my opinion)
