On the basketball court, it’s all about the game for Chris Paul. But when the final buzzer sounds, it’s family time 24/7.

The Los Angeles Clippers point guard — who stars in a new campaign for Bloomingdale’s Father’s Day catalog alongside his fellow cover models, daughter Camryn Alexis, 4½, and son Chris Jr., 8 — reveals how his brood plans to spend the upcoming holiday in an exclusive interview with the brand.

“I love having huge family meals that include everyone: my mom and dad, my brother and his family, and my wife’s parents,” Paul, 32, told Bloomingdale’s.

Adds the NBA star of the advice he’d give himself as a new father, “Enjoy the little moments and take more pictures. We take tons of pictures anytime we have a family event.”

Paul explains that he and wife Jada love to get together with the families of his famous basketball-star pals Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James during one very opportunistic time of the year.

“All-Star Weekend is usually when we have an opportunity to get all the kids together,” he says. “We also try to get together during the summer, but since we all live in different cities it can be difficult.”

Continues Paul, “Regardless, we all love to talk about our kids and share stories.”

The basketball pro, who helped the U.S. take home gold in the 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympics, remembers being “extremely excited” to be part of the first team to ever wear Ralph Lauren during the games’ opening ceremony.

“I can remember my hat and everything down to the white boat shoes,” Paul says. “And speaking of Father’s Day, my dad kept my entire outfit and still has it at home.”

Today, the father of two himself says “the fragrance department and Ralph Lauren shop” are his first stops when he visits Bloomingdale’s.

“Ralph Lauren actually outfitted everyone for my wedding, even my baby son,” Paul shares. “The brand will always be a common thread in my family.”
