There will be no need for Paul George’s No. 24 jerseys going forward as he has decided to switch his jersey to No. 13. The purpose is to start fresh in the next chapter of his life and career. That is why the Indiana Pacers small forward wants to be called “PG-13” once he returns from his rehabilitation process. With all of the No. 24 jerseys on the verge of going stale, George thought it would be a good idea to buy up all of the jerseys and perform a good deed.

George is not someone who made it big and forgot where he came from. In fact, the 24-year-old understands that he owes a great deal to Knight High School in Palmdale, Calif. for his success in professional basketball.

For that reason, he decided to show his gratitude by taking all of the purchased No. 23 jerseys and giving them away to the students and faculty members at Knight High. His biggest fans at KHS showed their appreciation by taking to Twitter and showing the world countless photos of students and school personnel wearing the jerseys.

George suffered a compound fracture of both his right tibia and fibula during a scrimmage for Team USA in preparation for the 2014 FIBA World Cup. Unfortunately, he is expected to miss the entire 2014-15 season as his recovery time is approximately 12 to 16 months. The good news is USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo recently gave a statement that George will have a guaranteed roster spot on the 2016 U.S. Olympic team. Along with that, Team USA is trying to find a way to have a proper tribute for George during the FIBA World Cup.
