Three of the NBA's point guards are teaming up for a massive and much-needed off-court assist.
Stephen Curry, Chris Paul and John Wall are jointly aiding those affected by Hurricane Florence in North Carolina and the surrounding area. All three were born in North Carolina and have watched their home state ravaged by the latest hurricane to rip through the United States.
The effort, titled "Assist for Hurricane Florence," has already raised more than $10,000, with a public goal of $500,000. Donations are being made through the Edward Charles Foundation.
Please join myself, @CP3 and @JohnWall supporting our home state of North Carolina and the surrounding area in #HurricaneFlorence recovery efforts! A lot of work to do and any amount helps those in the area get back on their feet quickly. https://t.co/RRdmxWFiJu— Stephen Curry (@StephenCurry30) September 20, 2018
