NBA: Curry, Paul, Wall launch Hurricane Florence fundraiser 1

Three star NBA guards have joined forces to raise money for those affected by Hurricane Florence in North Carolina.

Stephen Curry, Chris Paul and John Wall have formed "Assist for Hurricane Florence," an online fundraiser similar to the one J.J. Watt of the Houston Texans formed after Hurricane Harvey ravaged his community a year ago. Watt's effort raised $41.6 million.

Paul and Wall are North Carolina natives, and Curry attended high school and college in the state.

Curry tweeted: "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."
