Ten-time All-Star Chris Paul was described by Gregg Popovich as a rare kind of player who can be a mentor to young players. Could he make the transition into being a coach after he retires? Right now CP3 says there is ‘no chance’ of that happening.

The reason is because of the time it takes to be a coach. Instead of spending the time travelling, he wants to be around his family, Paul told to John Schuhmann of NBA.com:

“No chance. It’s the time. I don’t want to travel like that. I want to be around the game as much as possible. I watch every game. But I want to be around my kids and family.”
