Zach LaVine uses dunk titles to help deaf school

Zach LaVine's hops have helped him win two slam dunk titles and make a name for himself as a rising star in the NBA. They are also playing a big role in a better dining experience for students at a school for the deaf in St. Paul, Minnesota.

The Timberwolves star made his fourth trip of the season to Metro Deaf School on Monday. This visit marked the opening of a new kitchen and cafeteria paid for in part by the money LaVine won while defending his slam dunk championship at All-Star Weekend in February.

He took sign language in high school, which piqued his interest in working with deaf children.
