Hornets’ Jerseys Raise $22,000

The New Orleans Hornets raised $22,000 for charity through the auctioning of autographed, red jerseys that the team wore on Valentine’s Day.

Proceeds will go to the American Heart Association and Hornets Charities.

Chris Paul’s autographed jersey drew the largest bid at $5,550, and David West’s drew $3,800. Both were easily higher than bids drawn for autographed All-Star jerseys auctioned off by the NBA. Jerseys from two-time NBA MVP Steve Nash ($2,425) and Gilbert Arenas ($2,275) got the highest bids in those auctions.
