Paul Millsap was welcomed back to his old neighborhood with a reception that included a drum line and cheering children. It was a contrast to how the newest Denver Nuggets player left town years ago as a kid — his mom struggling to make ends meet.

“My history had a lot to play into [signing with Denver], actually,” said Millsap, who was touched by the band that greeted him, along with the throng of children. “It felt like it was unfinished business here, being here years ago and leaving under the circumstances we left. To help this community out, this organization out, that played a big factor.”
