Chris Paul 2022: Net worth, salary, and endorsements
Phoenix Suns star Chris Paul, also known as the Point God is currently playing his 17th season in the NBA. He was drafted with the fourth overall pick in the 2005 NBA Draft by the New Orleans Hornets.
Despite the Hornets' lack of success, Paul emerged as one of the best point guards in the league. His best campaign came in 2008 when he finished second in the MVP voting, a result some fans are still not content about.
He was then traded to LA Clippers in 2011 where he had the iconic Lob City team up with Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. They became one of the best teams in the league and were also very entertaining to watch. But lack of postseason success still followed Paul who was subsequently traded to the Houston Rockets in 2017.
He joined forces with James Harden, and almost led them to the NBA Finals, but then he got injured sadly. He played just two seasons before the Rockets traded him to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Following the season, the Thunder accepted his wishes and sent him to the Phoenix Suns where he is now creating menace in the West alongside Devin Booker. In his first season itself, CP3 led a young Suns side all the way to the Finals defeating LeBron James and the mighty Lakers in the first round and defeating a resilient Clippers' side in the Conference Finals. In spite of leading in the Finals, the Suns lost to the Bucks.
In the 2021-22 season, Paul has been the protagonist in the build-up play for Phoenix, in spite of not putting up the best numbers. Needless to say, the side is performing exceedingly well.
