You've heard it before: small town boy suffers hardships, defies odds, and rises to the top. It's the American way— self-made strength. Portland Trail Blazers Center, Meyers Leonard, follows suit, but with a different formula. Rising above the rim is a matter of finding strength from those around him and a mettled mindset. "Built to Rise" is a story of "the right stuff," and displays the man beyond the athlete.
