In his second season with the Los Angeles Clippers, five-time NBA All-Star Chris Paul continues to take an active role in his NBA community. Leading more than 4,000 Los Angeles kids and their families in a 3K walk and healthy living festival, Paul and his CP3 Foundation recently co-hosted the 10th Annual LA’s BEST Family Health Festival, a free event created to promote the importance of getting fit and eating well.
Interacting with kids and parents, Paul, an NBPA Vice President, helped to motivate the thousands of participants at the celebration of health, which included physical fitness activities, healthy snack booths, medical screenings, arts & crafts, and more.
In addition to his commitment to health and wellness, the superstar point guard has taken his passion for bowling to a new level. Joining NFL greats Jerome Bettis and Terrell Owens, and actor/comedian Kevin Hart, as the first celebrity owners of the Professional Bowling Association League, Paul will have his own LA-based team when the inaugural league debuts this January.
An avid bowler, he has hosted the Chris Paul PBA Celebrity Invitational charity bowling event on ESPN the past four years benefiting his CP3 Foundation. And he certainly made his passion for bowling known when he went on Twitter to ask the world, “Why isn’t bowling in the Olympics? It should be.”
He’s got a lot on his plate these days, but as the natural born leader is proving with his 17.1 points and10.3 assists per game averages this season, busy is what he does best.
