VIDEO: Paul Millsap Accepts ALS Ice Bucket Challenge from Al Horford, Nominates Siblings and Shelvin Mack

Several members of the Atlanta Hawks family have accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and next up is All-Star power forward Paul Millsap.

The challenge, in which a person dumps a bucket of ice water over their head, is to spread awareness of the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, and encourage donations to research. 

ALS is a disease of the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement.

Millsap was nominated by frontcourt-mate Al Horford.

Watch his video below, including him nominating his three bothers John, Elijah and Abraham, along with Hawks teammate Shelvin Mack.
