Chris Paul is set to produce a docuseries focused on basketball programs at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). The show is slated to unfold throughout the 2020-21 season and will look at the challenges HBCU schools face when competing with more prominent mainstream programs to attract top basketball recruits.
In speaking to Deadline, Paul discussed the surrounding context of the docuseries, “HBCUs historically have been at a competitive disadvantage with their basketball programs facing many challenges with funding, recruitment, misperceptions, and exposure. With the current racial awakening in our country prompting young athletes to look at where they play, it’s now more important than ever to shine a light on HBCUs and showcase their value in sports and society.” He plans to stay involved with the show even while participating in the NBA’s re-start in Florida. As the Thunder prepare for Orlando, Paul will be looking to lead his team deep into the playoffs and to a championship. This year he has averaged 31.8 minutes of playing time, 17.7 points, 4.9 rebounds, 6.8 assists, and 1.6 steals per game. Paul’s game is consistent and comes with a high-floor as well as a high-ceiling. He should be a starter in all fantasy formats.
