During the NBA bubble over this past summer, Chris Paul represented a great number of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (The HBCU) on the court with his feet. To pay his respect to a multitude of the schools that are a part of the HBCU, he wore a different pair of custom Jordan Brand shoes representing a different university. This lot features the custom pair of Jordan Brand Winston Salem State University Rams shoes that were worn by Chris on August 18th, 2020.

In a 108-123 loss against Paul's former team the Rockets, Paul had a near triple double in 37 minutes of play with a scoring line of 20/9/10. These size 12.5 Jordans not only represent WSSU, but feature a special hand-written message by Chris honoring the late Breonna Taylor that reads: "CAN'T GIVE UP NOW... #BREANNATAYLOR". The red and white shoes feature the abbreviation "BLM" in white on the left shoes' red tongue in support of Black Lives Matter, while the left shoes' tongue portrays a raised right fist. Both the right and left shoe feature the same hand-written inscription from Paul, whereas the right shoe also includes Paul's signature in black marker.

In addition to these one-of-a-kind shoes this lot also features a game-used Oklahoma City Thunder jersey worn by Chris during the 2019-20 season. This white "ASSOCIATION" jersey is a size 48+4. It features "OKLAHOMA CITY" sewn across the chest and Paul's #3 on the front and back, all in teal-on-white-on-orange twill. “PAUL” is stitched across the back shoulders in solid white tackle twill letters, beneath a stitched on NBA logo. Orange, gold and navy blue ribbing caps adorns the neck and sleeve openings. The front of the jersey features a white NIKE swoosh stitched on the right shoulder. The Thunder's "LOVE" sponsors patch is stitched on to the left shoulder.

Fanatics Authenticated

All net proceeds from this lot will be donated to the Historically Black Colleges and Universities by The Chris Paul Family Foundation, which works to alleviate inequality in the fields of education, technology, sports and community life.
