Chris Paul Breaks Magic Johnson’s Double-Double Record; Praises Him On Twitter

During last night’s 102-98 Clippers victory in Minnesota, Chris Paul recorded an NBA-record 12th consecutive double-double to start the NBA season with 20 points and 11 assists. The guy who held the previous record, an ever-gracious Magic Johnson, tweeted congrats.

Magic Johnson is amazing guys, and we’re not talking about his basketball skills, either.


Paul is a student of the game, and his praise in response to Magic’s tweet was noble. This whole thing just makes us happy. Even though Paul can turn into a murderous a**hole on the court sometimes, he’s always been a gentleman off it.


Here is one of CP3’s eleven assists from his record-breaking night. Kudos go out to both gentleman.
