Chris Paul’s and Stephen Curry’s families face off on ‘Family Feud’ Paul: ‘I’m blessed. We’re all blessed to have each other.’

When it comes to motivation, whether on the basketball court or off, Chris Paul finds strength in family.

“Basketball is not who I am; it’s not who this family is,” said Paul to The Undefeated. “We’ve figured that out a long time ago.”

So it was a no-brainer for the Houston Rockets point guard to show off his family’s smarts in a jovial yet competitive game of Celebrity Family Feud.

Last month, Paul and the Rockets fell to Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors in the 2018 Western Conference finals. But now on a clean slate of friendly competition, the Paul and Curry families will compete on the show hosted by Steve Harvey on June 24 at 7 p.m. EDT on ABC. Joining Chris are his wife, Jada, his older brother C.J., his mother, Robin, and his father, Charles. And with Stephen Curry are his wife, Ayesha, his younger sister, Sydel, his mother, Sonya, and his father, Dell.

This is the Pauls’ third time on Celebrity Family Feud, and this time they rocked the money color green.

When asked what prompted the team’s color, Paul gave the credit to his wife and his mother: “The women speak, I follow.”

Paul’s father, Charles, shared the lesson that has been passed down from generation to generation in the Paul family. “Never forget family.”

And Paul has put those words into action by creating a family hustle.

“We’ve got a real team,” he said. “C.J. handles the business side of things, and my mom handles a lot with the foundation. Then my dad manages just about everything and my wife manages at home [and our personal lives]. So for me, I got the easy part. I’m blessed. We’re all blessed to have each other.”

The Pauls are strongest when united, unless they are playing golf, spades or taboo, the game where Jada Paul is the champ in the family.

But even with fun, there’s structure. Growing up, both Paul and C.J. Paul weren’t allowed to play sports if they didn’t have a 3.0 GPA.

“Even though we only needed a 2.0 to play in school, our parents set a higher standard for us,” said Paul. “And we keep that going with our kids too.”

Since making his NBA debut in 2005, Paul has many basketball accolades: nine-time All-Star, All-Star MVP, a double Olympic gold medalist, National Basketball Players Association president. But even as a world-class athlete, he’s most proud to wear the titles of father, husband, brother and son.
