It seems like it was just yesterday when Chris Paul was the fourth overall pick by the New Orleans Hornets in the 2005 NBA Draft. He came out firing his first season leading all rookies in points, assists, steals, and double-doubles, and became only the second rookie in NBA history to lead the league in total steals. He was also Rookie of the Year, and would have won it unanimously but there was one vote for Deron Williams. Jordan Brand scooped up CP3 in 2006, and the elite point guard began his journey to a signature sneaker of his own. It wasn’t until the 2007-2008 season when he was selected to his first All-Star team, which was played in front of his home fans in New Orleans.
CP3 has been leading the market in basketball sneakers that are meant for those quick cutting point guards who can break ankles at any given time. Just ask Andre Miller; he can vouch for that.
The CP3.IX gets some new technology that we haven’t seen before. “Striking Control”, which is built for his elusive style of play. Embedded in the sole is a nine-chamber Zoom unit that gives added responsiveness, while enhancements on the outrigger give Paul the utmost in control and stability when he makes those incredible cuts. Whether you’re an explosive, quick cutting PG like Chris Paul or an elite player in your own way, the Air Jordan CP3.IX is sure to elevate your game to another level.
