Pacers Links: Paul George keeps No. 24 alive in his hometown

After making a marketing move to change his number, Paul George made sure his hometown would keep the memories alive of his early years in the NBA.

Paul George turned a problem into a positive on Wednesday when he donated a warehouse full of No. 24 jerseys and t-shirts to the students and faculty at Knigh High School in his hometown of Palmdale, California.

In order to officially switch to PG-13, George had to buy up all of the remaining merchandise with No. 24. Apparently that task is complete after seeing the reaction from Knight High as the selfies started rolling in when the merch was delivered. Here's a sample.

So the next time we see Paul George aka "Young Trece" on the court he will definitely be wearing the 1-3. Let's just hope he is still young and able to play like he did in the 2-4.

Speaking of PG, he will be speaking to the media with a press conference scheduled for Friday at 2 p.m. ET to discuss his injury and recovery.
