Chris Paul has always made fatherhood a priority, and on Father's Day, ESPN released a video of Paul spending time with his 5-year-old son, "Little Chris," quizzing him on math and reading.
"To have a son is the best thing," Paul told ESPN. "It's better than I ever could have imagined."
Paul helped change the Clippers' locker room culture when he was signed by the team in 2011, bringing his son into the locker room after wins. His teammates Jamal Crawford and Matt Barnes followed suit with their young sons.
The Clippers' All-Star point guard said it means the world to his son -- and himself -- to get to spend that intimate time together during the 82-game season, especially considering the team is out of town for 41 games, sometimes going on trips that last as long as two weeks.
"Even though I'm a competitor on the court, my family and that life goes way beyond this basketball stuff," Paul told The Times in April.
