*Chris Paul may keep his cool when folks joke about him not winning a championship, but his family is not as strong.

The NBA All-Star revealed the impact the ridicule has had on his daughter, during an interview on The Pivot podcast. According to Paul, his daughter is being bullied at school, with her classmates piling on insults towards him.

“[My daughter] at the age now where at school kids talk crazy to her,” the Phoenix Suns player said on the podcast. “She had a little boy at school that said some reckless stuff to her. He was like, ‘Your daddy ain’t never gon’ win no championship.”

Despite making the NBA All-Star team 12 times, multiple times as a member of the All-NBA First Team and a history that includes being named Rookie of the Year after being drafted with the No.4 overall pick by the New Orleans Hornets in 2005, Paul has become a source of laughs with consistently coming up short in the playoffs, Blavity noted, via Vibe.

The reality of going without a ring after 20 years in the NBA is something he deals with regularly. Especially when his family is affected and caught in the crossfire of attacks that do not seem to end.

“It’s tough on me, but it’s even harder for the people around me, especially my wife,” he said. “My wife is the one who has to bear those late nights.”

Regarding his daughter, Paul Speaking about his daughter, Paul touched on the irony of her being she is the sweetest soul ever, but she is now being bullied with the same jokes her father has heard over the years.

“My baby is special. She will hold it together there, but when she got in the car, she called me and she was upset,” said Paul, who labeled his daughter as the sweetest soul ever. “I had to have that talk with her. ‘Baby, some people talk and some people do.’”

In addition to the bullying his daughter faces, Paul addressed lessons he is passing down to his kids. The athlete emphasized to his children that success does not lie in being famous.

“Their advantage is not their last name. That’s actually a disadvantage,” he said. “The advantage is seeing the work.”

To drive his point home, Paul makes a point of bringing his children to work as a way for them to see what it takes to succeed.

“You gotta bring them to practice sometimes, you gotta let them see what you’re doing,” the basketball superstar said. “If you think they’re just gonna make it off your last name, that’s not gonna happen.”
