OXNARD, Calif. -- Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul isn’t one of those celebrities who comes to Dallas Cowboys training camp just to be seen.

PODCAST
Sean Lee joins Fitzsimmons and Durrett to discuss the Cowboys' upcoming season and his role on the team.

Paul is a die-hard fan who actually seems proud of the fact that he slept on Cowboys sheets while in college at Wake Forest.

“I’m like a little kid,” Paul told reporters at the end of practice. “I’ve done a lot of good things in my career, but this is one of the highlights of my life. These guys probably have no clue what it means to me. I used to act like I was Ken Norton in the backyard playing middle linebacker.”

While CP3 intently watched practice, his 4-year-old son, Chris Jr., tackled Rowdy (the Cowboys' mascot) on the opposite field. Paul, who sported a Cowboys T-shirt and backwards cap, talked to several of the team’s stars, including Tony Romo, Dez Bryant and Jason Witten.

The Cowboys presented Paul with a No. 3 jersey. After posing with coach Jason Garrett while holding the jersey, Paul cracked, “Just let me know if you need me. They’ll let me out of my contract.”
