Toronto Raptors Superfan Nav Bhatia has donated $150,000 to the City of Mississauga to fund four new basketball courts for the city.

The new courts will be built in Malton, a neighbourhood located in Mississauga’s northeast end, according to a tweet shared by Bhatia.

“Thank you to all those that bought items from the website and the companies that [I’ve] made appearances for or endorsements with,” he wrote. Bhatia says that he donates all his shares of merch sold on his website, appearance fees, and endorsements.

“All my fees I donated to the foundation and now it’s time to give back.”

Bhatia’s tweet has been flooded with responses applauding the move, and calling the Superfan an “awesome,” “amazing,” and “genuinely good” person, and the City of Mississauga stated: “Slam dunk!”

This charitable act isn’t the first good-hearted action that Bhatia since he stepped into the public eye.

Last fall, the Superfan reportedly bought dinner for a Milwaukee fan who had posted racist tweets about him during the Eastern Conference Finals — a move that turned the stranger into a “friend for life.”
