Blazers C Meyers Leonard Starts NBA.com Rookie Diary

Portland Trail Blazers rookie center Meyers Leonard has started a rookie diary on NBA.com.

Portland Trail Blazers rookie center Meyers Leonard has started a Rookie Diary on NBA.com's All Ball blog. One topic: his piano playing.

Another thing I'm doing is learning to play the piano. I know that I will have down time during different parts of the season, so I want to keep my mind fresh and learn new things. I started taking lessons a couple weeks ago, and I'll try to go about once a week when I'm in Portland. So far, I can play different bits and pieces of some of the simple songs, like Yankee Doodle, Amazing Grace, When The Saints Go Marching In. I've also learned a good portion of Jingle Bells. I'm learning to play Wanted by Hunter Hayes, which is actually not that difficult. And I also want to learn the theme song from "The Office," but that one is really hard.

Recent Leonard coverage on Blazersedge can be found here and here. He also appeared on CBS This Morning on Saturday with his brother, Bailey.
