Paul's consistent high level of play and chemistry with his teammates catapulted the Hornets to a playoff spot, the team's first since the 2003-04 season. (They were eventually eliminated by the champion San Antonio Spurs.)
Prior to the start of the 2011-12 season, the Hornets orchestrated a three-way trade deal with the Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets that sent Paul to the West Coast. After a negative backlash in New Orleans, the trade was nullified,
although Paul eventually went to Los Angeles to play for the Clippers.
Paul and his wife, Jada, whom he met at Wake Forest, have two children: a daughter, Cameron Alexis; and a son, Christopher Emmanuel II. Paul's family nicknamed him CP3 because he, his father and brother all share the same C.P. initials. He is an avid bowler and owns a franchise in the Professional Bowlers Association league.
