Early life Paul was born on May 6, 1985 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina
Winston-Salem, North Carolina
to Charles Edward Paul and Robin Jones.[3] He has an older brother named Charles "C.J." Paul.[3] A former athlete himself, Charles Sr. taught his sons basketball and football and coached them in various youth leagues throughout their childhoods.[4] Growing up, the Paul brothers spent their summers working at a service station owned by their grandfather Nathanial Jones,[5] to whom Paul attributes many life lessons, and describes as his "best friend".[6] One of Paul's uncles is a police officer.[7] High school career Paul attended West Forsyth High School in Clemmons, North Carolina.[8] During his freshman and sophomore seasons, he played on the junior varsity team.[9] For his junior year, he averaged 25 points, 5.3 assists, and 4.4 steals per game, helping West Forsyth reach the state semifinals.[10] Over the ensuing summer, he led the Winston-Salem-based Kappa Magic to the National U-17 AAU title, earning tournament MVP honors in the process.[11] During his senior season, Paul received national attention for scoring 61 points in a game; his 61-year-old grandfather was slain earlier in the year and Paul honored him by scoring one point for each year of his life.[8] Paul finished the season with averages of 30.8 points, 5.9 rebounds, 9.5 assists, and 6 steals per game, leading West Forsyth to a 27–3 record and the Class 4A Eastern Regional finals.[10] He was then named a McDonald's All-American, first-team Parade All-American, and North Carolina's Mr. Basketball
Basketball
by The Charlotte Observer.[10] College career As a freshman at Wake Forest University, Paul averaged 14.8 points, 5.9 assists, and 2.7 steals per game,[12] setting school freshman records for three-point percentage, free throws, free throw percentage, assists, and steals in the process.[10] Behind his play, the Demon Deacons qualified for the NCAA Tournament, losing in the Sweet Sixteen to St. Joseph's.[13] At the conclusion of the season, Paul was named ACC Rookie of the Year and Third Team All-ACC.[10] For two weeks early in Paul's sophomore season, Wake Forest was ranked number one in the nation for the first time in school history.[14] In the final game of the year, Paul punched NC State guard Julius Hodge in the groin and received a one-game suspension for the ACC Tournament,[15] an incident that marred Paul's image for a short time.[14] The Demon Deacons again qualified for the NCAA Tournament but suffered a second round upset at the hands of West Virginia.[16] With final averages of 15.3 points, 4.5 rebounds, 6.6 assists, and 2.4 steals per game, Paul was eventually named First Team Consensus All-America,[12] and with a 3.21 grade point average (GPA), he was also named to ESPN's Academic All-America
Academic All-America
Team.[17] On April 15, 2005, he announced he would be hiring an agent and turning professional.[14] On March 2, 2011, Wake Forest retired his jersey.[18] College career statistics

Early seasons (2005–2007) Paul was selected fourth overall in the 2005 NBA draft
NBA draft
by the New Orleans Hornets.[19] Due to the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina, the Hornets played most of their games in Oklahoma City
Oklahoma City
that year.[20] Paul 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.[21] With final averages of 16.1 points, 5.1 rebounds, 7.8 assists, and 2.2 steals per game,[22] he was named NBA Rookie of the Year, falling just one vote shy of winning the award unanimously.[21] The only other rookie to receive a first place vote was Deron Williams, with whom Paul enjoyed a brief rivalry early in their careers.[23] At the 2007 All-Star Weekend, Paul set new Rookie Challenge records with 17 assists and 9 steals.[24] For his sophomore season, he increased his scoring and passing averages to 17.3 points and 8.9 assists per game, but played in only 64 games due to injury.[22] Rise to stardom (2007–2011) Paul was selected to his first NBA All-Star Game in 2007–08,[22] playing in front of his home fans in New Orleans.[25] Behind his leadership, the Hornets were near the top of the Western Conference standings all year, temporarily occupying first place on March 17 following a win against the Chicago Bulls.[26] New Orleans finished the season with a franchise-record 56 wins and the second seed in the West.[27][28] Paul led the NBA with 11.6 assists and 2.7 steals per game to go along with 21.1 points per game,[22][29] finishing second in NBA Most Valuable Player Award
NBA Most Valuable Player Award
voting and being named to his first All-NBA and All-Defensive teams.[22][30] In his playoff debut, he scored 35 points against the Dallas Mavericks.[31] In Game 2, he set a franchise playoff record with 17 assists.[32] The Hornets defeated the Mavericks in five games, with Paul registering 24 points, 11 rebounds, and 15 assists in the final game.[33] New Orleans were eliminated in the next round by the San Antonio Spurs.[27]

in March 2009.

Prior to the start of the 2008–09 season, Paul signed a contract extension with the Hornets worth $68 million.[34] On December 17, 2008, he set the NBA record for consecutive games with a steal at 106.[35] On several occasions, he came within a few steals of recording a quadruple-double, including a 27-point, 10 rebound, 15 assist, and 7 steal game against the Philadelphia 76ers on January 26, 2009.[36] His final averages were 22.8 points, 5.5 rebounds, 11 assists, and 2.8 steals per game.[22] Despite Paul's individual accomplishments, New Orleans' record fell from the year before and they were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by the Denver Nuggets.[37] After a slow start to the 2009–10 season, the Hornets fired coach Byron Scott.[38] Paul stirred up controversy when he announced his displeasure with the move, commenting that team management should have "consulted with me and asked how I felt before it happened."[39] In early February, 2010, Paul tore cartilage in his left knee and was sidelined for over a month by surgery, forcing him to miss the All-Star Game.[40][41] In total, he played in only 45 games and his averages dropped to 18.7 points, 3.8 rebounds, 10.7 assists, and 2.1 steals per game.[22] Without Paul, the Hornets struggled, missing the playoffs.[42] In 2010–11, Paul had another injury scare on March 6, 2011, suffering a concussion after colliding with Cavaliers guard Ramon Sessions and being carried off the court in a stretcher.[43] He returned two games later, registering 33 points and 15 assists against the Sacramento Kings.[44] With Paul playing a full season, the Hornets qualified for the playoffs and were matched up with the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers
Los Angeles Lakers
in the first round.[45] Paul had a "historically great" performance in the series,[46] contributing 33 points, 14 assists, and 4 steals in Game 1 and 27 points, 13 rebounds, and 15 assists in Game 4.[47][48] His final averages were 22 points, 6.7 rebounds, 11.5 assists, and 1.8 steals per game on 54.5 percent shooting.[22] New Orleans were eliminated in six games,[45] and ownership, fearing that Paul would leave the franchise via free agency, began actively pursuing a trade that would provide the team equitable compensation in return for his services.[49] Los Angeles Clippers
Los Angeles Clippers
(2011–2017) Trade to Los Angeles (2011) On December 8, 2011, the Hornets agreed to a three-team trade sending Paul to the Los Angeles Lakers. The NBA, who owned the team at the time, nullified the deal, with commissioner David Stern
David Stern
claiming New Orleans would be better off keeping Paul.[50] The teams involved in the trade attempted to lobby the league to reverse its ruling and reconstruct the deal to no avail.[51][52] On December 12, the Hornets agreed to a trade sending Paul to the Los Angeles Clippers, but the deal broke down after the NBA added additional demands to the original terms.[53] Two days later, the teams finally made the trade, sending Paul and two future second round draft picks to the Clippers for Eric Gordon, Chris Kaman, Al-Farouq Aminu, and the Minnesota Timberwolves' unprotected first round pick in the 2012 draft.[54] Upon the deal's completion, Paul announced that he would opt into the final year of his contract and remain in Los Angeles for at least two more seasons.[55] Playoff contention (2011–2017)

Paul with the Clippers in February 2012

Paul's arrival to Los Angeles rejuvenated the Clippers franchise, with teammate Blake Griffin
Blake Griffin
later commenting, "It put us on the map."[56] Early in Paul's debut season, the team developed a reputation for their fast paced offense and spectacular alley-oop dunks,[57] usually from Paul to Griffin or DeAndre Jordan,[58] earning them the nickname "Lob City".[59] Paul finished the year averaging 19.8 points, 9.1 assists, and 2.5 steals per game,[22] becoming the first Clipper to be named to the All-NBA First Team
All-NBA First Team
since the franchise moved to Los Angeles in the 1980s.[60] Behind his play and the emergence of Griffin as an All-NBA performer, Los Angeles qualified for the playoffs, losing to the San Antonio Spurs
San Antonio Spurs
in the Conference Semifinals.[61] At the 2013 All-Star Game, Paul led the West to victory with a 20-point and 15 assist performance, earning his first NBA All-Star Game Most Valuable Player Award.[62][63] He finished the season averaging 16.9 points, 9.7 assists, and 2.4 steals per game, helping the Clippers to a franchise-record 56 wins.[22][64] Seeded fourth in the West entering the playoffs, Los Angeles were defeated in the first round by the Memphis Grizzlies.[65] Shortly after their early postseason exit, the Clippers announced they would not renew coach Vinny Del Negro's contract and rumors arose of Paul forcing Del Negro out. Los Angeles later denied any player involvement in the coaching decision.[66][67][68] Prior to the start of the 2013–14 season, Paul re-signed with the Clippers for five years on a contract worth approximately $107 million.[69] Despite a shoulder injury that sidelined him for over a month,[70] Los Angeles set another new franchise record for wins with 57.[71] His final averages were 19.1 points, 10.7 assists, and 2.5 steals per game.[22] In Game 1 of the second round of the playoffs, he hit a career postseason-high eight three-pointers to help the Clippers take an early series lead over the Oklahoma City
Oklahoma City
Thunder.[72] In Game 5 and with the series tied 2–2, he made a string of late mistakes leading to an eventual Thunder victory, later commenting, "It's me ... Everything that happened at the end is on me."[73] Oklahoma City eventually eliminated Los Angeles in six games.[74]

Paul attempts a pass in December 2016.

In 2014–15, Paul played in all 82 games for the first time in his career, averaging 19.1 points and a league-high 10.2 assists per game.[75] In Game 7 of the first round of the playoffs, he hit a go-ahead shot with a second left to lift the Clippers over the Spurs despite a hamstring injury.[76] The injury forced him to miss the first two games of the next series versus the Houston Rockets, and Los Angeles eventually lost in seven games despite holding a 3–1 series lead.[77][78] The defeat marked ten consecutive seasons and seven consecutive playoff appearances without a Conference Finals appearance for Paul.[79] In January of the 2015–16 season, Paul led the Clippers on a ten-game winning streak despite missing Griffin and Jordan at various points due to injury.[80] For the third straight year, he finished the season with averages of over 19 points, 10 assists, and 2 steals per game.[22] To begin the postseason, the Clippers drew a matchup with the Portland Trail Blazers, taking a 2–1 lead to start the series. In Game 4, Paul broke his hand and was ruled out indefinitely.[81] Without Paul, as well as Griffin, who also injured himself in Game 4, Los Angeles eventually lost the series in six games.[82] In 2016–17, Paul missed 21 regular season games due to rest or injury, and averaged 18.1 points, 9.2 assists, and 5 rebounds in just over 31 minutes per game.[22] At season's end, Paul was not rewarded with an All-NBA honor, marking just the second time he failed to make an All-NBA team since 2008 and the first time in his six years as a Clipper.[83] In the playoffs, Los Angeles was eliminated after their first round series against the Utah Jazz, with Paul averaging 25.3 points, 9.9 assists, 5 rebounds per game over seven games.[83] Houston Rockets
Houston Rockets
(2017–present) On June 28, 2017, Paul was traded to the Houston Rockets
Houston Rockets
in exchange for Patrick Beverley, Sam Dekker, Montrezl Harrell, Darrun Hilliard, DeAndre Liggins, Lou Williams, Kyle Wiltjer, a future first round pick, and cash considerations.[84] In his debut for the Rockets in their season opener on October 17, 2017, Paul had four points on 2-for-9 shooting in a 122–121 win over the Golden State Warriors.[85] Paul sat on the bench down the stretch while the Rockets made their final push, and it was later revealed he was playing through a knee injury.[86] He subsequently missed the next 14 games before returning to the lineup on November 16. He had 11 points and 10 assists in his first game back, helping the Rockets score 90 points in the first half en route to a 142–116 win over the Phoenix Suns; Paul saw 21 minutes of action and sat out most of the fourth quarter. The Rockets made 61 percent of their first-half shots to get the second-most points in a first half in NBA history.[87] On November 27, he had a season-high 14 assists in a 117–103 win over the Brooklyn Nets.[88] On December 7, he had a near triple-double with 18 points, 13 assists and nine rebounds in a 112–101 win over the Utah Jazz.[89] On December 13, he recorded a season-high 31 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds in a 108–96 win over the Charlotte Hornets.[90] Two days later, he had 28 points, eight assists and seven steals to lead the Rockets to their 12th straight victory, a 124–109 win over the San Antonio Spurs. Paul became the first player in NBA history to post 28 points, eight assists and seven steals in a game against the Spurs. In the previous 10 years, that stat line had been achieved just 10 times—six of those 10 recorded by Paul.[91] He was subsequently named Western Conference Player of the Week for games played from Monday, December 11 through Sunday, December 17. It was his 13th career Player of the Week honor and his first since January 2016.[92] On December 31, Paul scored 15 of his 28 points in overtime as the Rockets snapped a five-game skid with a 148–142 double-overtime win over the Los Angeles Lakers.[93] On January 10, he took 29 shots and finished with a season-high 37 points in a 121–112 win over the Portland Trail Blazers.[94] On January 18 against the Minnesota Timberwolves, Paul earned his 1,958th steal, passing Derek Harper to move into 13th place on the NBA's career steals list.[95] Two days later, he recorded 33 points, 11 rebounds, seven assists and three steals in a 116–108 win over the Golden State Warriors.[96] On January 26, he scored a season-high 38 points in a 115–113 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans.[97] On February 3, he recorded 22 points and 11 assists in a 120–88 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. During the game, Paul passed Andre Miller
Andre Miller
(8,624) for ninth place on the career assists list.[98] On February 23, in a 120–102 win over the Timberwolves, Paul passed Allen Iverson
Allen Iverson
for 12th on the NBA's career steals list with 1,984.[99] National team career

Paul with Team USA in 2012.

Paul made his debut for the United States national team at the 2006 FIBA World Championship
FIBA World Championship
in Japan.[100] He finished the competition with a tournament-high 44 assists, helping Team USA win the bronze medal.[101] At the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, he played a key role off the bench, scoring 13 points in a gold medal game victory against Spain.[102] Team USA finished the competition with a perfect 8–0 record.[100] Paul was promoted to the starting point guard position for the 2012 Olympics in London, averaging 8.2 points, 5.1 assists, and 1.6 steals per game en route to another gold medal and undefeated tournament.[103][104] Player profile Standing 6 feet tall (1.83 m) and weighing 175 pounds (79 kg), Paul plays point guard exclusively.[22] His career averages are 18.7 points, 4.4 rebounds, 9.9 assists, and 2.3 steals per game.[22] He has earned All-NBA honors eight times (2008–09, 2011–16), All-Defensive honors eight times (2008–09, 2011–16), and led the NBA in steals six times (2008–09, 2011–14) and in assists four times (2008–09, 2014–2015).[22] In 2013, he was ranked the third-best player in the league by ESPN
ESPN
and Sports Illustrated.[58][105] In his 2014 NBA preview, ESPN's Kevin Pelton called Paul the league's best point guard, adding, "a title he's held throughout his career when healthy".[106] Paul prefers playing in the half court versus playing up-tempo.[106] He creates scoring opportunities by constantly changing speeds; upon beating his defender one-on-one or shedding him in the pick-and-roll, he will often slow down and box him out, denying him from regaining front side position and forcing the defense to help at all times.[58] His ability to penetrate deep into the paint leads to easy shots for his teammates, and in 2013 he was second in the league in assisted three pointers.[106] As a playmaker, he is noted for his consistently high assist-to-turnover ratio,[107] averaging just 2.4 turnovers per game over his career.[22] A deft midrange shooter, he is especially proficient from the right elbow, leading the league in shooting percentage from that area in 2015.[108] On defense, he aggravates opponents with active hands and high effort,[58] and has been ranked as one of the best perimeter defenders in the NBA.[109] Off the court Paul married his college sweetheart, Jada Crawley, on September 10, 2011.[110] Together they have two children, Christopher Emmanuel Paul, Jr. (born May 23, 2009) and Camryn Alexis Paul (born August 16, 2012).[111] The family resides in a Mediterranean-style mansion in Bel Air, which Paul bought from Avril Lavigne
Avril Lavigne
for $8.5 million in 2012.[112] On November 11, 2011, Paul appeared with his family on Family Feud.[113] Paul is a Christian and attends church every Sunday whenever possible.[114] In one interview, Paul commented, "I am so thankful that my parents raised me and C.J. to depend on God's guidance and our faith in Him, and to always be thankful for what we receive."[115] He enjoys bowling and owns a franchise in the Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) League called L.A.X.[116] He has hosted and participated in numerous celebrity and youth bowling events as the head of the CP3 Foundation, which benefits programs in Louisiana affected by Hurricane Katrina, as well as charities in Winston-Salem.[117][118][119]

Paul answers questions at a youth basketball camp in July 2009.

Paul's brother, C.J., played college basketball at Hampton University and University of South Carolina Upstate. In 2004, they played against each other when Wake Forest had a preseason exhibition with USC-Upstate.[120] C.J. now works as Chris's personal manager.[121] Paul is close friends with footballer Reggie Bush; the two lived in the One River Place complex in the New Orleans Central Business District while Bush was playing for the Saints.[122] They also shared a personal chef.[123] In 2014, Forbes
Forbes
ranked Paul as one of the highest-paid athletes in the world with $24.2 million in earnings including $5.5 million in endorsements.[124] Some of the companies he does business with are Nike and State Farm.[125] He was the cover athlete for the video game NBA 2K8.[126] Paul was selected president of the National Basketball
Basketball
Players Association on August 21, 2013 after having served on the executive committee for four years.[127] He was a key figure in the banning of Clippers owner Donald Sterling
Donald Sterling
from the NBA following racist remarks Sterling made in 2014. In one interview, Paul mentioned a possible boycott if Sterling continued to own the team.[128] Paul played a significant role in the election of Michele Roberts as the Executive Director of the Players Association, giving a strong recommendation to the executive committee responsible for filling the position.[129] NBA career statistics
