Chris Paul is an American professional basketball player, best known as a marquee point guard for the Los Angeles Clippers franchise in the NBA.
Born on May 6, 1985, in Lewisville, North Carolina, Chris Paul grew up in a tight-knit family. Although as a child he played football, Paul later took his older brother’s lead and became a basketball standout. Following a high school stint as a star, he was recruited to Wake Forest University, where he became a key part of the team’s effort to rebuild. Paul was drafted into the National Basketball Association in 2005, by the New Orleans Hornets, where he played for six seasons before becoming a key part of another rebuilding effort, with the Los Angeles Clippers.
Paul and his wife, Jada, whom he met at Wake Forest, have two children: a daughter, Cameron Alexis; and a son, Christopher Emmanuel II. Paul’s family nicknamed him CP3 because he, his father and brother all share the same C.P. initials. He is an avid bowler and owns a franchise in the Professional Bowlers Association league.
