Many professional athletes like to give back to their alma mater after they leave school. Paul George of the Indiana Pacers is one of those athletes.
George played his college ball at Fresno State, and he wanted to show some love to the Bulldogs fans that supported him in his time at the school. So what did he do? He decided to buy all of the tickets to Fresno State’s home opener against Cal State-Northridge on November 16th to give away free to fans:
.@Paul_George24 bought all the tickets to Fresno State Men’s Basketball game on Nov. 16! Thank Paul & pick up your FREE ticket! Thanks PG!

All fans have to do is print off a voucher to claim a free ticket. The Save Mart Center has a listed capacity of 16,162, so George definitely had to reach into his pocket to make the giveaway happen. Good for him though — it’s always nice to see pro athletes give back when they can.
