The Clippers guard led the U.S. Olympic team in steals and was second in assists en route to a gold medal. He and his wife, Jada, had their second child, Camryn Alexis, last Thursday.
DAN PATRICK: What was more emotional, seeing your baby girl or winning gold?
CHRIS PAUL: Definitely seeing my baby girl. I have a son who's three. I was a little hesitant about this girl thing, but everyone's been telling me it changes your life. Chauncey Billups has three daughters. He's been giving me pointers.
DP: How tired are you from the Olympics and being in the delivery room?
CP: It's been a whirlwind. When you're over in London, you almost forget everyone at home is watching. We're all in a hotel, we're together all day, every day. When you get here, everywhere you go, everyone says, "Congratulations." It's pretty special.
DP: Do players become too unselfish on the U.S. team?
CP: At the beginning of the trip Coach K told us, "Don't leave your ego at the door; bring your ego in." That's what made our team so special. That's what makes him such a great coach. He has an ego just like us players.
DP: When you were in college [at ACC-rival Wake Forest], what did you think of Coach K?
