You always gotta watch your back when you're a famous athlete. There's always people out there are looking for a handout from you. After all, when you're making millions and millions of dollars, it shouldn't surprise you if your circle of would-be friends increases exponentionally.

But who would've thought that would also apply to would-be family?

Well, certainly not Chris Paul. That would explain why he was surprised to hear that Mizzou basketball player Miguel Paul was going around and telling people that he was Chris Paul's cousin. Miguel went the whole nine yards, talking about how older cousin Chris came to see him after a particular game and even taking the similar nickname, MP3. There's only one problem: Chris Paul has no idea who Miguel Paul is.

Whoops. Can you retract an entire feature-length story?
