As Nike continues to celebrate the 2012 World Basketball Festival, the brand has dropped this new video featuring a member of Chicago’s TEAM NIKE.

Tony Bennett may share his name with a legendary lounge singer, but he thrills crowds with performances on a grittier stage. Raised in housing projects on the Westside of Chicago—the kind of hoods where kids learn to hoop on bent back-alley rims–his game relies on determination and resilience. “We may not be the best players,” he explains in this exclusive video, “but we definitely gonna out-tough our opponent.” This summer, when Chicago’s TEAM NIKE heads to the nation’s capital to take on regional all-star squads in the World Basketball Festival, opponents will be facing a human hurricane from the Windy City.
