The former Miami Heat player and current Boston Celtics forward showed the kids what it’s like to be a professional basketball player by leading them through a handful of training drills.

Anthony told Global News the clinic is his way of giving back to the church and the community where he grew up.

“Everyone understands that the youth is our future. [I] wanted to give them some type of structure to do something with their time, ” he said.

“For those that are basketball fans and even those that might be just getting into it, this is opportunity to get a chance to meet me and to be able to work with some very good coaches and to be able to develop their game.”
