Evening Eye Candy: La Clipper And Fashionis-ter Chris Paul
Some call him CP3, but the rest of us just look at him (and swoon) and call him Chris Paul. The cutie with the big brown eyes has been killing the game as a point guard for years, first in New Orleans as a Hornet, and currently in Los Angeles as a Clipper (and at Wake Forest if you remember his skills all the way back when). And while the Clippers have spent many years on struggle mode, with Paul at the helm and Blake Griffin at power forward, the Clippers have been having some of their best seasons yet since 2011. And while it’s nice to watch Paul in action, it’s just as nice to just look at the 6’0″ baller, who has as much personality as he has game. He’s one of the NBA’s finest in every sense of the word, and for that reason, we’ve decided to showcase the brother as candy. Enjoy!
Chris Paul might be balling it up big time in Los Angeles, soaking up the sun and basking in all the fabness of the beautiful people, but he was born in raised in Lewisville, North Carolina and spent his summers as a young’n working at his late grandfather’s service station.
Aside from being an amazing basketball player, Paul is also a pretty snazzy dresser, making numerous appearances in GQ because of his style moves, and being called one of the NBA’s most stylish men.
And those eyes! Does anybody else feel like breaking out into “Pretty Brown Eyes” by Mint Condition?
When he’s not playing basketball, did you know Paul was a really good bowler? In fact, homeboy is a sponsored spokesperson for the United States Bowling Congress…whatever that is.
Paul is also the head of the CP3 foundation, which offers scholarships and offers donations to other big charities and has teamed up with Feed The Children, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Boys & Girls Club and Habitat for Humanity and more.
Where was I about those philanthropic efforts? Seeing all the great work Paul has done, the NBA has awarded him with the Community Assist Award twice, which is given to players who show a strong passion for community service. Nothing like a fine man who likes to do good for the people on a consistent basis!
While we’d love for Paul to be our boo, we actually like him better with his beautiful wife, Jada Crawley, whom he met while at school at Wake Forest. The happy couple have two children together.
Those two children are Christopher Emmanuel Paul II and his daughter, Camryn Alexis Paul, who was recently born in August of 2012. You can see him spending quality time with his kids via his social media, and his son is always in a press conference or courtside supporting his dad.
All in all, Chris Paul is a dope basketball player, a great philanthropist, a devoted dad, and an all-around great role model. Guess that’s why so many people are big fans, including us! So what do you think? Is Paul your cup of tea?
