At 21, Emmanuel Mudiay has been through more than some people experience in a lifetime -- growing up without a father, escaping war in Zaire.
Through it all, he has become an inspiration to children around the world.
Earlier this week, the Denver Nuggets star hosted a skill academy in the Capital Region. Mudiay had never been to Albany and has no connections here.
He just wanted to spread his love for basketball to the next generation.
