Students of the game

Chris Paul’s success is even more remarkable when you consider his age. Just ask Avery Johnson

“He’s come a long ways,” Johnson said. “At age 22 I was trying to pass a psychology research class and trying to graduate.”

Paul didn’t graduate from Wake Forest, but the young point guard is certainly a student of the game.

“He calls out all our plays,” Johnson continued. “He seems to know what I’m going to call before I call it, so obviously he watches a lot of film and he studies a lot. He’s way ahead of a lot of young men. He has a lot of wisdom beyond his years.”

So how did Johnson do in that research class? He squeezed out a B from a very tough professor.

“And she was anti-sports, so she was tough on me.”
