As the New Orleans Hornets’ First Round Draft pick in 2005, Paul has excelled at the NBA level winning multiple honors throughout his career, as well as on the international stage, helping the US National Team to two Gold Medals at the Olympics and one Bronze Medal at the FIBA World Championships.
After a wonderful career in New Orleans, a change of scenery was in store for Paul as the-then Hornets moved him to the Los Angeles Clippers in a three-team blockbuster deal. With his pinpoint passing and precise decision-making ability, Paul’s arrival to the Clippers allowed the moniker for “Lob City” to be coined.
Also known as “CP3”, Paul averages nearly 20 points and 10 assists per game, and was ranked third-best current NBA player by Sports Illustrated in 2013. Paul also heads the “CP3 Foundation”, which benefits programs in Louisiana affected by Hurricane Katrina.
