T.O. - The Cavs #1 pick Anthony Bennett gives back to the T-dot

This year's #1 NBA draft pick, Anthony Bennett helped unveil the new youth centre in Toronto's Jane and Finch this past Thursday where the young Toronto native began his early basketball career.

Via The Globe and Mail:
“The Boys and Girls Club played a huge part in my success,” said Anthony Bennett, the NBA’s No. 1 overall draft pick in 2013, who grew up around the corner. “Seeing [the club] expanding, reaching out to the kids, is just real heart-warming.”

The new facility includes a fresh new mural with the NBA rookie in his UNLV jersey and the word "DREAM" beside it.  Canadian singer Jully Black and former Toronto Blue Jay, Roberto Alomar were also at the unveiling as well.

There's no question in anyone's mind about Bennett's love for his roots in Toronto, just check out his new ink.
