Rich Paul, arguably the most famous and most powerful sports agent in the National Basketball Association and the rep for superstar LeBron James, has his eyes on ruling the National Football League.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Paul has his sights set on opening an NFL division of his Klutch Sports agency, and this has inspired hilarious memes because of alleged fear instilled in the old-school NFL owners.

Paul is reportedly in discussions with NFL agent Damarius Bilbo. He boasts a stable of stars on his roster, including New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara, Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon, and Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry.

Paul, who famously never attained his bachelor’s degree, is now one of the most influential and high-profile agents in all of sports. He represents the Who’s Who of superstars in the NBA, including two of the top five players in the league, Los Angeles Lakers stars LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

Paul also has gotten mega-deals for the likes of Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green, Washington Wizards guard John Wall and Philadelphia 76ers guard Ben Simmons, according to CBS Sports.

The move caused quakes in the NFL and inspired hilarious memes from sports fans on Twitter:
