Teammates for Kids is proud to congratulate our first-ever basketball Teammate, Chris Paul, on being named MVP of the 2013 NBA All-Star game on February 17 in Houston. Paul's West team beat the East 143-138 to win the NBA’s midseason exhibition. He scored points on 7-10 shooting, to go along with 15 assists and 4 steals. Chris has been a Teammate since 2008.

"Teammates is lucky to have Chris Paul associated with the foundation," said Teammates Co-Founder Garth Brooks. "His courage, unselfishness, vision, determination, and leadership are all reasons why he received MVP honors and why he will continue to receive them on and off the court. His love for the game and for all children makes him the perfect fit for foundation work. Congrats, Chris, and congratulations to your family."
