Chris Paul’s Height, Weight, and Body Measurements

He was born Christopher Emmanuel Paul on May 6, 1985 and it appears that sports is in his blood. At an early age his dad, who was a former athlete himself, coached his boys in football and basketball. So it is no surprise that Chris chose this career path, despite all his numerous achievements since then, today it’s all about his statistics.

So join us as we dig up, Chris Paul’s statistics, beginning with Chris Paul’s height.

Chris Paul’s Height

Well he’s a basketball player, so we are guessing he’s one of the tall ones, the question today is, what is Chris Paul’s height? He stands tall at 6 feet, despite this he is still considered ‘short’ in the NBA.

Don’t be mistaken, things like this do not deter the athlete, rather he has developed a thick skin.In a children’s book titled, Long Shot: Never Too Small to Dream Big, he explained his struggle at a young age. According to espn.com, the book focuses on Paul’s dreams to make the grade school team, despite his size and the criticism he received from others.

The book was obviously meant to encourage kids to dream big no matter what limitations were before them. In an extract from the book he wrote, ‘I remembered that the average height of a player in the NBA was 6 feet 7 inches tall. I was only 4 feet 1 inch tall. And I wasn’t going to get much taller in the next few days.’

The story didn’t change much as the athlete was 5 feet and an inch when he started high school, he received the same criticism and was even made fun of by his brother alongside his friends. Despite this, he fed off the encouragement of his parents and his grand dad, Papa Chilly, who taught him to believe in himself.

Fans complained that the weight gain affected his speed over the years and it was aging him even though he was yet to reach his prime. Probably in a bid to get back out there and better himself, the athlete enlisted the help of Nabie Fofanah, aka the Speed Doctor, to help him get his speed back.

According to Fofanah, this was what they mostly worked on, ‘ His flexibility, physically, is one thing that we worked on a lot, his flexibility, his balance, and just balancing the strength of the muscles on both sides. That was the main thing and then also, adding a lot of conditioning that we did on the track with a lot of the repeat runs on the track was really helpful too.’
