Paul Anthony Dy Artadi (born May 5, 1981 in Manila) is a professional Filipino basketball player who currently plays for the Blackwater Elite in the Philippine Basketball Association.

Artadi was born in the University of Santo Tomas Hospital in Manila but grew in San Juan, Metro Manila. He is known for his fast-paced, run-gun action inside the court that gave him the name "Kid Lightning." He was drafted by the Purefoods Tender Juicy Giants, alongside former UE Red Warriors teammate James Yap, in the 2004 PBA Draft.

About the player[edit]

The 5'9 Artadi played backup to Roger Yap with the Giants. He was then traded to the Barangay Ginebra Kings in 2007. While with Ginebra, he had his best career output in the PBA while playing with the team's ace skipper Jayjay Helterbrand.

In 2009, he was traded back to his former team, the Purefoods Tender Juicy Giants.

In 2010, he was traded to the San Miguel Beermen for Jonas Villanueva.

Early 2011, he was traded to Air 21 Express.

He was then traded to the Meralco Bolts for Chico Lanete where he was reunited with his former coach Ryan Gregorio.[1]
