Chris Paul should've been gearing up for the Hornets opener Nov. 2. But instead of hearing someone call out a pick to his left, he was hearing "survey says!"

Joining his mom Robin, brother C.J., dad Charles and Robin’s sister, Rhonda Richardson, Chris Paul was on "Family Feud," which aired Tuesday. And if you think it was a setup for the show, it wasn't. Via the Times-Picayune:

The family got in the game over the summer as any family would, by calling up the show’s player hotline (323.762.8467) and requesting an audition. They tried out in New Orleans during auditions held in conjunction with the Essence Music Festival.

According to a show spokeswoman, there were no pre-arrangements made to inform casting producers that an NBA superstar would be trying out with his family.

“I didn’t know who he was,” said Gaby Johnston, executive producer. “I had no clue.

“We’d done NBA players before on the show. Because of his size, he’s doesn’t look like a basketball player.

“But I loved the family. They’re so happy and so charming.”

The Paul family played for Chris Paul’s CP3 Foundation.

Survey says though that CP3 should stick to the basketball court. A wallet? Musk? Come on man.
