Chris Paul Early Life and Career
Chris Paul is the son of Charles Edward Paul Sr. and Robin Jones. He was born on May 6, 1985, in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Charles “C.J.” Paul is his older brother’s name. Charles Sr. was an athlete in his day, and he passed his knowledge of the sport on to his sons.
As a senior at West Forsyth High School in Clemmons, North Carolina, Paul steered the varsity basketball team to a 27-3 record.
In 2003, he was named Mr. Basketball in North Carolina and was named to the McDonald’s All-American Team. He continued his education at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem after finishing high school.

Paul extended his deal with the Hornets for $68 million before the start of the next season. In December of that year, he established a new NBDA record for most games in which he recorded a theft. Paul missed the All-Star Game in 2010 because he had to have surgery to repair a torn cartilage in his knee.
The next season, he had another near-miss with injury when he was carried off the court on a stretcher with a concussion after colliding with a Cavaliers guard.
Paul was traded to the Lakers from the Hornets in a three-team deal that went down in December 2011. Blake Griffin said that the Clippers were “Put on the map” after Paul’s arrival, a reference to how Paul’s presence revitalized the squad. That was the year that the Clippers made the postseason. Before the start of the 2013–14 season, Paul re-signed a five-year, $107 million contract with the Clippers.
Paul made history by appearing in all 82 games in the 2014–15 season. Paul sat out 21 regular season contests in 2016 because of rest or injury. Paul did not receive an All-NBA honor that year, marking only the second time since 2008 that he did not make an All-NBA squad, and the first time in his six years with the Clippers.
