Phoenix Suns point guard Chris Paul will be playing his 18th season in the NBA 2022-23 and the veteran has recently revealed his post-retirement plans. The 12-time NBA All Star, Chris Paul has opened up on his desire to own a NBA franchise in the future.
The principal owner of Charlotte Hornets, NBA legend Michael Jordan is the only player to own a team in the league while many players have partnerships in various franchises. Last year, Dwayne Wade purchased minority stakes in NBA franchise Utah Jazz.
While talking in a recent Goldman Sachs Business Conference interview, Paul said, " I would like to be a part of an ownership group after I’m done playing."
Earlier this week, NBA stars Chris Paul and LeBron James publicly criticised Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver over the ongoing controversy regarding his NBA suspension following misconduct accusations.
Chris Paul said, "This conduct especially towards women is unacceptable and must never be repeated. I am of the view that the sanctions fell short in truly addressing what we can all agree was atrocious behavior."
During his 17 years of career in NBA regular season, Chris Paul averaged 14.7 points per game, 4.4 rebounds per game, and 10.8 assists per game. Paul has been named in eleven All-NBA teams, and nine NBA All-Defensive teams.
