Chris scored 61 points in a game in honor of his grandfather who was killed at the age of 61. Paul had to miss his last free throw in order to remain at 61 which made it all the more special. Fortunately, Chris’ grandfather did get to witness his signing with his Wake Forest alma mater and even wore his same cap at the signing.
Here’s the video that started all this. Chris Paul passing the ball between a former Hawk’s legs.
