Paul is one of nine men and women on Biden’s committee. His administration has committed $5.8 billion in support to the colleges and universities. The White House released a statement on the Suns star, applauding him for the work he’s done in the community.
Paul, 36 has averaged 15.0 points, 10.7 assists, 4.4 rebounds, and 1.8 steals per game in 61 contests this season. The veteran guard has helped lead the Suns to the NBA’s best record.
