The documentary “David Falk: Agent of Change,” will air on ESPN2 on Tuesday, July 12, at 8 p.m. In a career spanning five decades, David B. Falk ’72 set the market for how all future sports stars would be compensated.

During a 40-year career, he has represented the top players in NBA history and has negotiated record-breaking contracts for his clients, both on and off the court. His vision and ability to read the changing landscape helped to shape the evolution of the business of sports. Chair emeritus of the Sport Management Advisory Board in Falk College, he additionally serves on Syracuse University’s Board of Trustees.
