Two ways:

1. Family or friend (see Mike Conley, Sr. or LeBron's new agent)

2. Graduate from top 25 law school, maybe get a graduate degree in sports management, and land a gig with one of the major representation agencies.

The former porn star Britney maclin said recently she was a house girl for a famous agent. She would meet prospective clients at their hotel and take care of persuading them to sign with her boss.

My brother played college basketball and some of his clients were past teammates. He also has coached at the college level and was a GM for some lower level basketball leagues.

Law school is a good place to start. Or you can start out as an assistant at a Management Agency and work your way up from there. Most agencies hire assistants who want to be career assistants or who want to become agents.
