In order to change his jersey number from 24 to 13, Indiana Pacers star Paul George had to buy out all the merchandise with his old number from Adidas. George did just that and then put the merchandise to good use by donating it to his high school.

George gave the purchased gear to the students and staff of Knight High School (Palmdale, California), from which he graduated in 2008.

Why did he do such a nice thing?

George may only be 24 years old, but the young star already knows that giving back is important.
