Clippers Point Guard Chris Paul Strikes a Pose
From the hardwood to the glossy pages of a fashion magazine, Chris Paul is expanding his profile.
"I realize that I'm not going to be doing interviews for the cover of GQ for the rest of my life, know what I mean," Clippers point guard Chris Paul told Steve Marsh in GQ's October "Big Fall Style Playbook" Issue which goes on sale on newsstands nationwide on September 25.
Paul talked to Marsh at his parents' 30th anniversary party in a Marriott banquet hall in North Carolina. Knowing his career is finite, Paul made it a point that Marsh met his extended family. "All of those people that were in there? They're still going to be there," Paul told Marsh.
While Marsh reveals a lot of the dynamic within the extended Paul family, there was one passage that seemed to be more incredulous than anything else in the profile.
From his perch at the head table, CP3 assures me that he preferred the Clippers to the Lakers all along. "They had the better pieces," he says, "and winning with the Clippers would be legendary."
Excuse me while I try to pick myself up off the floor from a paralyzing laughter fit.
