BENTON HARBOR, Mich. A hometown hoops hero gave kids in Benton Harbor a special treat for Christmas this year. Our reporting partners at the Herald-Palladium tell NewsCenter16 Wilson Chandler of the Denver Nuggets passed out more than 300 gifts on Christmas Eve.

Chandler had to rush to Chicago from a Monday night game against the Golden State Warriors then fight icy conditions driving from O'Hare to Benton Harbor.

But he says it was all worth it to see the smiles on children's faces. Besides presents, Chandler also provided 80 boxes of pizza for the Christmas party.
