CP3. It would be hard to find a more likable, wholesome sports superstar than Los Angeles Clippers favorite Chris Paul. The antithesis of the flashy pro athlete, the 28-year-old doesn’t drink or smoke, and even eschews tattoos. Paul is a dedicated father to his two young children and a devoted husband to his college sweetheart, to whom he was married in 2011. Paul’s grandfather, whom he cites as his greatest inspiration, was murdered at age 61, the day after the point guard committed to Wake Forest University during his junior year of high school, which had a profound impact on his life. In the first game after his grandfather’s death, Paul honored him by scoring 61 points. To this day, he calls it the most memorable game of his career. In this REAL SPORTS/Sports Illustrated collaboration, correspondent Mary Carillo provides a better look at the newly elected president of the NBA Players Association and the catalyst behind the Clippers’ remarkable turnaround.

    I stated this before for all slam readers. Let’s focus on the player and not the person. NBA is an entertainment business and you have to dehumanize the player so that you can view the player as an object of entertainment. This will prevent from insulting the person. All humans make mistakes unless you don’t consider adultery as a mistake then you wouldn’t have an issue with it. Also, athletes are not moral guides and never claim to be. People who take athletes as role models only want their wealth status and ease of life. If working at McD’s gave you the life of Lebron everyone would be working there. Let’s refrain from insulting the person and trying to break apart marriages and families. You never know who reads these message boards. Accusing someone of adultery is a tremendous claim.

    I would like to see him talk about that game, that must’ve been crazy to witness. He kind of reminds me more of a football player with how straight laced and angry he can be.
