Before kicking off their weekends, several Denver Nuggets players went through a grueling workout session at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The high altitude (the amphitheatre sits at 6,450 feet above sea level at its peak height) and plethora of steep steps provide the players with a challenging training session. Monte Morris, Will Barton, Jarred Vanderbilt, Michael Porter Jr., Thomas Welsh and Brandon Goodwin participated in the Friday morning workout.
Thomas Welsh gripped the basketball tight with both hands and stared ahead as he collected his thoughts. It’s been only seven months since his father, his best friend and biggest supporter, Pat Welsh, passed away after a battle with cancer that lasted more than three years. He was 51. The pain is still there, just a beat behind the surface. “It hasn’t been easy,” Welsh said. “He’s always been my role model. He would tell me stories about how, in high school, he was a center too. He was 6-(foot)-2, but he would talk about how he would play against taller guys and outhustle them for rebounds. He averaged a double-double his senior year and would always point that out. It was hilarious. He was my best friend. It’s been tough to go through such a transition point without him in my life.”
