Paul George buys his old jerseys, donates them to his alma mater

Thursday August 14th, 2014

The NBA has an obscure policy that requires a player who changes jersey numbers to buy all remaining unsold jerseys on the market -- unless said player applies for the change before a specific deadline. But even though Paul George met that deadline when he applied for the jersey number change from 24 to 13 (all so he can use a rather silly nickname), he decided to buy up all his old jerseys anyway, so he can donate them to his alma mater, Knight High School in Palmdale, California.

Students and school staff all looked plenty happy.
