2012 PBA Chris Paul Celebrity Bowling Invitational

words // Brandon Richard

When Chris Paul isn't doing his job as the Lob City floor general, you can probably catch him indulging in his second passion as a notable 10-pin bowler. Chris is a sponsored spokesperson for the United States Bowling Congress. In fact, his newly-released Jordan CP3.V signature sneaker features bowling shoe size notation on the outsole as a tribute to the "other" game he loves.

This past Wednesday at Lucky Strikes Lane in Los Angeles, Paul hosted his Annual Celebrity Bowling Invitational, featuring notable athletes, musicians and actors. Guests in attendance included new teammate Blake Griffin, Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush, singer Ciara, comedian Kevin Hart, actor Jerry Ferrara, former NFL All Pro Michael Strahan and more.

Read on for a look at some of the footwear spotted at the 2012 PBA Chris Paul Celebrity Bowling Invitational.
