Why Chris Paul Has The Best Car Collection In The NBA Today

Ethel Walsh

Chris Paul has been amongst the best players in the NBA for the past 17 years and is considered one of the top three points guards of all time, commonly referred to as ‘point god’. The only thing missing from his impressive resume is an NBA championship ring.

He has been selected to 12 All-Star teams and counting during his illustrious career and sits third in all-time assists behind Hall of Famer Jason Kidd and John Stockton and fourth in all-time steals. While his fellow athletes and iconic basketball players also flaunt impressive car collections, his is unique because of the variety.

Chris Paul owns cars from the past and present and including classic American muscle from Cadillac and Jeep. He also has fine taste in luxury with cars from Land Rover and Mercedes-Benz.

Paul is also considered one of the ‘nice guys’ in the NBA and has recently completed his bachelor’s degree in Communications from Winston-Salem State University. He solidified his ‘nice guy’ status by gifting rookie Houston Rockets teammate Gary Clark a new Black Mercedes-Benz GLE for his birthday in 2018. He is consistently featured on the tabloids’ front and back pages.

Paul’s collection comprises a BMW, Jeep JKU Wrangler Unlimited, Cadillac Escalade, and Range Rover, to name a few. Paul’s three favorite cars are his Ferrari 458 Italia, Mercedes-Maybach S680, and the Jeep JKU Wrangler Unlimited. Paul gives a lot of credit to Dreamworks Motorsports, based in Roxboro, North Carolina, who have built or revamped many of his classic cars.

While Paul’s collection is impressive, he has stiff competition from fellow NBA stars LeBron James, Steph Curry, and James Harden. Lebron’s collection includes his most prized possession, the Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, and Ferrari F430 Spider.

Curry’s car collection is also not too shabby and boasts Porsche GT3 RS, Porsche Panamera Turbo S, and a Range Rover Sport LWB. James Hardens collection includes his pride and joy, the Rolls-Royce Wraith, Range Rover Autobiography, Bentley Bentayga, and a Mercedes-Benz S-Class Saloon.

Of ex-NBA players’ car collections, it is undoubtedly worth mentioning arguably the greatest player of all time, Michael Jordan’s car collection. His Airness car collection includes a Bentley Continental GT, Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722, Aston Martin Volante DB9, and a Porsche 911, among his favorites.

While Steph Curry’, LeBron James’, James Harden’, and Michael Jordan’ car collections are seriously impressive and are the envy of most mere mortals. The edge has to go to ‘Point God’ Chris Paul due to his diverse collection that combines speed, everyday use, and pure elegance.
