and primetime show "The Game".
ESPN's E:60 (Tue. 10/21) and The Game (Fri. 10/31).
Chris Paul is one of the NBA's top stars. His work ethic is exceptional. He won the league’s Rookie of the Year award in 2005 and last season was a runner-up for the NBA Most Valuable Player (2008). This summer, he was a member of the U.S. Men’s Basketball team that won the gold medal for the first time since 2000. On the court or in any competition, Paul hates to lose. Off the court, no professional athlete could be nicer. Through his CP3 Foundation in his hometown of Winston-Salem, N.C., Paul spends much of his off-the-court time helping out the less fortunate in the community.
Paul gave E:60 and correspondent Rachel Nichols an all-access pass during his annual CP3 Winston Salem Weekend – a celebrity-filled charity weekend that raises money for several community organizations – featuring the likes of Lebron James, Dwayne Wade, Rudy Gay, NBA Rookie of the Year Kevin Durant, Jarrett Jack, Hornets coach Byron Scott and others. Nichols reports on the many sides of Chris Paul.
