Chris Paul is a professional basketball player playing in the NBA who acquired all-star status since the 2007-2008 NBA season and named by fans and critics alike as the NBA’s “Point God”.
Paul was already a gem in college basketball so he was drafted in the top 5, selected by the New Orleans Hornets as the fourth overall in the 2005 NBA draft. In his rookie year, he won severals accolades, as he was named the Rookie of the Year and finished the season leading all rookies in points, assists, steals, and double-doubles, and became only the second rookie in NBA history to lead the league in total steals. He then acquired the all-star status in the 2007-2008 season and started becoming a prominent force in the league.
After spending 6 years with the New Orleans Hornets, Paul was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers teaming up with Blake Griffin and Deandre Jordan. Paul’s playing style instantly clicked with the Clippers, and the trio earned the nickname “Lob City” because of their consistent spectacular alley-oop plays coming from Chris Paul to Blake Griffin or Deandre Jordan. However, in his 6 years as the Clipper’s point guard, the team never made it to the NBA’s conference finals, due to consistent injuries that troubled the trio.
In 2017, Paul was traded to the Houston Rockets, teaming up with James Harden. The duo made it to the Western Conference Finals and almost won the competition as they are up 3 games to 2 but was then eliminated by the Golden State Warriors after Paul suffered an injury and ruled out of the important games 6 and 7.
Paul gained awards in his national career, playing as the team USA’s point guard for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing winning a gold medal game victory against Spain. In 2012 London Olympics, Team USA once again won gold medal with Chris Paul playing point guard for them.
Off the court, Paul married his college sweetheart, Jada Crawley, on September 10, 2011. The couple have two children Christopher Emmanuel Paul, Jr and Camryn Alexis Paul.
