Chris Paul seems like he’s a pretty nice guy off the basketball court, but when he’s on it, he does just about anything to win. Late last year, he admitted that he’s not trying to make friends with guys on opposing teams when he takes the court.
“I don’t play for anybody to like me,” he told Bleacher Report. “I’m telling you, I got enough friends, you know what I mean?”
