George changes jersey number to No.13 for next season…
In order to change his jersey number, Indiana Pacers star Paul George had to buy all the merchandise with his old number from Adidas, and after doing that he has donated it all to his old high school.
The 24-year-old handed over all of his purchases to Knight High School (Palmdale, California), and the kids and teachers showcased their new look with a series of images appearing on social media networks.
George caught sight of them and revealed his delight at being able to give back, and it is undoubtedly a nice gesture from the Pacers star who faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines after suffering a compound leg fracture during an exhibition game with Team USA earlier this month.
Being critical, George has just handed a bunch of jerseys that bare his old number to his former high school, as he will don the No.13 as of next season after ESPN’s Bill Simmons started the initial idea by insisting it would be a great selling point.
Nevertheless, judging from the photos it doesn’t look like too many people are bothered…
