Does NBA star Chris Paul have a real twin brother?

    chris paul is a well known player in the world of basketball. but chris paul has a twin brother? the answer might surprise you. let’s find out more about it.

    There is no doubt that athletes are some of the most popular public figures in the world. some athletes have achieved such stardom that most people can only imagine living that way. most athletes are ideal role models, are great examples of physical strength, are exemplary humanitarians, etc.

    nba players are also “popular figures” around the world. The global media leaves no stone unturned in blurring the lines between the personal and professional lives of athletes. Usually this blurred line is a curse for most NBA players as they literally cannot have any private moment and are always under surveillance. However, some NBA players can use this immense popularity to their advantage and make a certain agenda very successful. The curious case of Chris Paul having a twin brother will be forever remembered by basketball fans around the world.

    Christopher Emmanuel Paul (born May 6, 1985) is popularly known as Chris Paul. Paul currently plays for the Phoenix Suns of the National Basketball Association (NBA).

    an eleven-time all-star, paul enjoys the famous nickname ‘cp3’.oddly enough, the number ‘3’ in paul’s nickname is there because paul, his father, and his older brother , they all share the same initials. now here’s the trick.

    in particular, paul’s older brother’s name is cj paul. and cj is the only brother of chris paul. So what is the hype going on around Chris Paul and his rumored non-athletic twin, Cliff Paul? Furthermore, none of Paul’s family members share a relationship with someone named Cliff.

    who is cliff paul and what is his relationship to chris paul?

    chris paul was selected in the 2005 draft in round 1, fourth overall by the new orleans hornets (later new orleans pelicans). this talented guard most recently played in the 2021 nba finals, representing the phoenix suns.

    however, cp3 is best known for his stint with the los angeles clippers. He played for the Clippers from 2011 to 2017. Interestingly, at the end of his first year with the Clippers, CP3 surprised everyone by introducing his twin brother, Cliff Paul.

    a very popular insurance company, state farm, launched cliff paul in 2012 through a series of commercials. Cliff looks absolutely identical to his twin brother, Chris Paul, but he has a mustache, he is the more cerebral and less athletic of the two brothers.

    Both Chris and Cliff Paul appeared in many videos together, leading fans to believe they were real.

    However, the truth soon revealed itself. cliff paul was just an alter ego of nba legend chris paul. All the while, cp3 was playing the non-athletic character of him and was being the assistant to his real self as a pseudo-agent.

    Sadly, this all came to an abrupt end in 2017. The brothers had to go their separate ways when Chris was traded to the Houston Rockets. But, before parting ways, Cliff Paul dropped her latest surprise for her twin brother.

    will cliff paul come back?

    as stated before, cliff paul’s character was sent into early retirement because cp3 was traded to the houston rockets. however, the latest development suggests cliff is poised to make a big comeback.

    recently, jordan from nike released a new colorway for the cp3.xi. This new colourway will apparently pay homage to the legend of Cliff Paul.

    the new colorway cp3.xi comes in desert sand (same as cliff’s khakis) with a purple, blue, and red checkered tongue, collar, and heel (same as cliff’s sweaters), and Nike even added some gold spikes. in the shoelaces, because there is nothing like family.

    • plus, cliff’s verified twitter handle is back up, and he recently dropped a hint while tweeting another upcoming season of state farm.

      Nothing sweeter than a brotherly reunion, right?
