Playing through the cold in New London

New London — Anthony Rocket and his son Elijah, 10, both of New London, were working through basketball drills Tuesday at Toby May Park. 

"This is the best part of my day," said Anthony who works morning shifts and gets to spend the afternoons with his family.

The duo was working on drills with a weighted ball in preparation for an upcoming basketball game for Elijah. "It's never too cold for a future Celtics player," Anthony said of Elijah's dreams of going into the NBA.
