Who Is Chris Paul's Wife? New Details On Jada Crawley And Their Marriage

Houston Rockets' point guard Chris Paul is currently battling the Warriors in the post season for a spot in the conference finals. Last year, he had to sit out the last two games of the match up with an injury but this year he’s healthy and on the court. At home, Chris is a family man with two kids and a wife. He and Jada have been together since they were 18-years-old. He said of her: “I truly love Jada; she has been there for the ups and the downs. Basketball isn’t going to last forever. Jada and I love spending time with each other, genuinely.” The couple married in 2011 after being together for close to a decade before. She’s often sitting courtside at his game and their son is a frequent guest at post-game press conferences.
