It all started when Waterbury Mayor Neil O’Leary had Barrymore give Gavin a proclamation in honor of his bravery.

Then, Barrymore introduced a video addressed to Gavin from his favorite basketball player, Carmelo Anthony.

And finally, Gavin’s favorite NBA team, the Brooklyn Nets, also heard about his heroics and gave him season passes and a bunch of gear.
