2011 NBA Playoffs Video: Chris Paul Would Hit Mom If Playing Basketball Against Her

Chris Paul is not of this Earth. In Game 4 he lifted his New Orleans Hornets to an incredible 93-88 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers with an impressive triple double performance. He executed a nasty crossover on Kobe Bryant, who used to be one of the best perimeter defenders in the league. He nearly broke Andrew Bynum's knees when he turned him around on a switch with his incredible dribbling skill. He had as many rebounds as Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum combined (13). He had 23 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists in the second half alone. He waited until the very last second to draw the double team and find a cutting Jarrett Jack, who nailed the clinching jumper.

And when asked by Cheryl Miller after the game about his competitive spirit and jousting with Kobe in the first half of this game, CP3 showcased his ferocious competitive spirit.
