Clippers star guard Chris Paul has been named the 2013 Sportsman of the Year by the LA Sports Council and will be honored at the LA Sports Awards on March 5 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
Paul, currently recovering from a seperated right shoulder, led the Clippers to a 56-26 regular-season mark in 2012-13 — the best in franchise history — and led the NBA in steals while also earning NBA All-Star Game Most Valuable Player accolades.
CP3 was elected president of the NBA Players Association in Aug. of 2013.
The star-studded awards dinner and gala will be televised March 14 on Prime Ticket following Clippers-Jazz.
The ceremony will also feature the presentation of the Sportswoman, Coach and Sports Executive of the Year honors.
