DENVER, CO — Not one Denver Nuggets player went to college in the centennial state let alone Denver, but what about high school? Oddly enough only a handful of NBA players, current and past, grew up in Colorado. So where did our nuggets stars walk the halls and dominate the school gym?
Jamal Murray – Grand River, Kitchener Ontario.
Michael Porter Jr. – Father Tolton, Columbia, Missouri.
Aaron Gordan – Archbishop Mitty High School, San Jose, California.
Christian Braun – Blue Valley Northwest High School in Overland Park, Kansas.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope – Greenville High school, Greenville Georgia.

As for Nikola Jokic, he left home at a young age, in his high school years, to play with Mega Leks, a Serbian team.
