By Barry Janoff

May 10,2018: Whether or not his Houston Rockets win the 2018 NBA title, Chris Paul this summer will be surrounded by trophies and awards.

In what it promises will be a "slime-soaked celebration," Nickelodeon has named Paul as host for its 2018 Kids’ Choice Sports awards show.

Kids’ Choice Sports 2018 will be taped live on July 19 in Barker Hangar, Santa Monica, Calif.

It will premiere Sunday, July 22 (8 PM ET).

Sponsors for Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Sports 2018 include Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, milk it!, Olive Garden and Verizon.

“I grew up on Nickelodeon and now love watching it with my kids, and I can’t wait to share this experience with them,” Paul said in a statement.

“I am honored that Nickelodeon asked me to host this year’s Kids’ Choice Sports awards. I promise to bring the fun, the slime and the most epic stunts in Kids’ Choice Sports history.”

Marketing will include TV, Internet and social media.

A dedicated Web site will go live in June as the official destination for Kids’ Choice Sports 2018.

Nominations will be unveiled at that time, enabling and kids of all ages to vote for their favorite athletes and all-star moments from the past year.

The Web site will also include all-star polls, sports-themed short-form videos, trivia and photos.

Paul is just the third host since the show launched in 2014.

Russell Wilson, quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, host the previous three Kids’ Choice Sports shows.

Michael Strahan hosted the first show (and also is listed among the show’s producers).

The Kids’ Choice Awards Show for movies, TV and music dates back to 1988.

Winners receive a Blimp trophy, Nickelodeon’s version of the Oscar.

In addition to such categories as Best Male Athlete, Best Female Athlete, Favorite Newcomer and Clutch Player of the Year, one athlete is honored at the Kids’ Choice Sports with the Legend Award.

Past recipients are David Beckham, Kobe Bryant, Derek Jeter and Michael Phelps.
