New Orleans' Hornets point guard Chris Paul is shown here dedicating the first of three basketball courts in New Orleans.
here's a little audio snippet about the dedication from WWNO Radio.
No stranger to philanthropy, Chris Paul continually helps the needy through his CP3 Foundation. Chris Paul and his family created the CP3 Foundation in partnership with The Winston-Salem Foundation to support a variety of charitable causes. Since its inception in 2006, the CP3 Foundation has raised more than $250,000 to benefit programs throughout Winston-Salem and New Orleans.
"CP3" nickname comes from family tradition. Tcombination of his initials and jersey number is strictly a coincidence. His father (Charles Paul) and older brother (C.J. Paul) are nicknamed CP1 and CP2, respectively. Paul also notes that all three men's initials are CEP.
