Chris Paul visits: Among 'highlights of my life'

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.

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.”
