OKC Thunder: Chris Paul salutes Langston University with shoes, pregame outfit
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Chris Paul continued his salute to Historically Black Colleges and Universities on Wednesday, keeping it close to home.
Paul entered the arena wearing a Langston University hat and shirt, then debuted a new design of his own shoes with "Langston" printed on the side of each.
Langston, located about 40 miles north of Oklahoma City, is the only HBCU in the state.
Paul has been supportive of HBCUs through his foundation and by bringing attention to them with his gear. He wore a Langston hat prior to a game in February as well.

"I had an opportunity to go over there a few times when I was younger in my career," Paul said of Langston. "I went to a few activities my rookie year and my second year when I played in Oklahoma (for the Hornets). Big shoutout to Langston University.
"Once again, just trying to bring awareness."
