Miller is giving back to his hometown, through a philanthropic venture called Team Hope NOLA.  He's partnering with Pelicans assistant coach Robert Pack to mentor local youth.

While in town, the former pro basketball player will take part in Friday night's All Star Celebrity Game, playing for the West with his son, Lil' Romeo.

He also plans to eat at all of his favorite local joints, including Oceana Grill.  Miller also says, he won't rule out a romantic carriage ride through the French Quarter!
