In the face of aggravated criticism, the NCAA has revised its arguable enfranchisement requirements for causal agents advising body basketball players. 

Under the revised guidelines, expected causal agents no thirster must have a bachelor's grade earlier they're allowed to stand for pupil-athletes who are considering a calling in the NBA. The alteration makes a grade no thirster compulsory as long as the causal agent is in good erect with the NBA Players Association.

Unofficially dubbed the "Rich Paul Rule" -- after the causal agent who stand fors LeBron James and several other NBA players -- critics claimed a body grade has no impact on the quality of an causal agent's work.

According to a news release, the NCAA made the alteration after having "been made aware of several current causal agents who have appropriately stand fored former pupil-athletes in their professional quest" and were granted waivers of the NBPA's bachelor's grade requirement.

The NCAA denied its rules targeted any particular causal agents.
