Friday will be a big night for the Portland Trail Blazers’ Meyers Leonard. He returns home to Illinois’ Robinson High School for his official jersey retirement ceremony.

Leonard entered high school as a guard, but converted to center after a six-inch growth spurt between ninth and tenth grade. He was named a member of the 2010 Illinois All-State Team, and led his school to the IHSA class 2A state championship.

Leonard will be taking a break from his activities in Portland, where he joined Damian Lillard and other players for some early preparation before training camp begins.
