Chris Paul’s son apparently not convinced Dad can dunk

Dec 20, 2012, 2:29 PM EDT

There is the video proof. I think we all knew Chris Paul could dunk, he’s plenty athletic, but he’s the below-the-rim guy on the high-flying Clippers.

But CP3 threw a quality two hander down against the Hornets on Wednesday night and after the game he tried to get a respect from his son (who is a regular part of the Clippers locker room and I would say one of the cutest, coolest kids I’ve seen… behind mine, of course). From the amazing Kevin Arnovitz of ESPN (hat tip to The Basketball Jones):

Kids kill you like that. All the time.

      You were right, she was wrong. Just don’t tell her I said so!

      Also, wikipedia could have saved your night…

    You guys do realize that Chris Paul had a legit measured 38″ vertical at the draft combine right ? obviously now post knee surgery it’s not as it was before, but also YouTube “Chris Paul on Dwight Howard” to see what he used to do prior to the knee surgery.

    I didn’t see him dunk once in college. Surprising.

    When you have rare skills like CP3, dunking is not an important aspect of his game. His thrill comes from:

    1. Watching guys ankles break
    2. Dishing a nasty assist
    3. Ripping an opponent of their dribble
    4. Scoring when needed

    He can let the other guys fly above the rim

    Wow, he got some massive air there.

    CP3 can dunk??? Must be steroids.

    Sorry, I was over on hardball, that’s pretty much everyone’s reaction to anything.

    guess his sonning ain’t working on his kid. Maybe Gasol ‘s sonning will do the trick !
