' superstar Chris Paul hasn't even been President of the Players Union for a full 24 hours yet -- but he's already put together a list of players' demands to take to the NBA, TMZ has learned.

Paul edged out veteran shooter Roger Mason and others to take the position -- and NBA sources tell us the players went with CP3 because they feel he's got the cojones and the clout to effectively take on the league.

Sources tell us ... Paul is taking his new role very seriously -- and is already talking to players about his agenda, which includes:

-- Preparing a battle plan to fight any league proposal for HGH testing
-- Eliminating flopping fines
-- Forbidding any dress code additions/changes

FYI -- NBA Commish David Stern is leaving his post in February ... and will be replaced by Adam Silver. Whether the move is good for the players is yet to be seen.

So basically he wants NBA players to be able to do whatever they want and face no consequences.

That's right Livvie, they want to use roids with no penalty, cheat on the floor and dress with their pants half way down their ass.

Who is the parent    

The dress code one I wouldn't waste energy on since players already found loop holes re that and dress stil how they want i.e. look at anyone who plays for OKC or Dwayne Wade. But the performance enhancing thing I disagree with. Leagues across the country need to have similiar policy and take a stand against it. It is ruining credibility of the GAME and record books! How many *** are in MLB now and other sporting events archives because of this? Exactly way to many

If he wants to take PED's let him. If he wants to shrink his balls, let him shrink his balls.

He might as well ask if they can drink beer and bang hookers in the locker room.

This is how you know Paul is a thug, he wants drugs, he wants to fake it and he wants to look fly.

It's interesting that the NBAPA would put a guy who probably couldn't graduate High School unassisted in the role of president - and it shows with his list of demands. What a nugget.

Bunch of over paid over indulged immature whiners. I say pay them what they are worth not what they think they deserve. They get the privilege of laying at a professional level then they act like they are doing the fans a favor by showing up. Not one of them would make it in the real world of hard work and real responsibility.
