There is no doubt that Chris Paul of the Phoenix Suns is one of the most talented and driven point guards the league has ever seen.
But he has had his fair share of setbacks and injuries that have prevented him and his teams from winning a championship.
Apparently, Paul’s injuries and his on-court adversities are affecting his daughter too.
Speaking to The Pivot Podcast, Paul opened up about the way his career is impacting his child.
“She’s at that age now where at school, kids talk crazy to her. She had a little boy at school that said, ‘Your daddy ain’t never gonna win no championship,'” Paul revealed.

Paul’s injuries and his lack of a championship victory have been spoken about for multiple years now.
Again and again, he and his squads have come close.
But, again and again, something has gotten in the way.
We have seen this occur with the New Orleans Hornets, Los Angeles Clippers, Houston Rockets, and most recently, the Suns.
Paul is 38 years old and playing a very physical game.
It’s not surprising that he is experiencing a lot of injuries.
How much does that weigh on him?
How much does that drive him to play even harder?
He doesn’t want to let his team down and he surely doesn’t want his daughter to receive comments like this from other children.
But time is definitely running out for Paul.
The Suns were supposed to be Finals contenders after their blockbuster trade for Kevin Durant in February.
Instead, they now have a new coach and are toying with some substantial roster changes in the summer.
