I think every basketball fan should know about Chris Paul of the Hornets. He should have been the MVP last year, but the great thing about Paul is everything he's doing in New Orleans. He has helped build houses and restore schools and gyms. He and his $60 million hands were out there last February hammering nails to build homes for people so they can move back to New Orleans. The poise that he demonstrates at his young age [23] is something that's very commendable in this era of the crybaby athlete.
