During the NBA bubble over this past summer, Chris Paul represented a great number of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (The HBCU) both on and off the court through his footwear. 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 throughout the course of the NBA bubble. Although Chris didn't play in the Thunder's August 14th game, Chris wore this pair of custom Jordan Brand North Carolina Central University while sitting on the bench during that game.

These size 12.5 Jordans not only represent NCCU, but they feature a special hand-written message by Chris honoring Breonna Taylor that reads: "CAN'T GIVE UP NOW... #BREANNATAYLOR". The white and red 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 pair of shoes this lot also features a game-used Oklahoma City Thunder jersey worn by Chris during the 2019-20 season. The teal "ICON" jersey is a size 48+4. It features "THUNDER" sewn on across the chest and Paul's #3 on the front and back, all in white-on-navy blue-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 stiched on to the left shoulder.

Fanatics Authenticated

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