Arvydas Sabonis is Coming Home

One of the greatest global basketball icons to ever set foot on the hardwood—from Lithuania to Portland—Arvydas Sabonis is returning to town following his induction to the Basketball Hall of Fame. The former Blazer enters the Hall on August 11-13 (jeez, that's a long induction period) and then comes back to Portland on the 18th. There should be a party.

There is a party!

The team will honor Sabonis and reunite him with fans in a public celebration at Pioneer Courthouse Square on Thursday, Aug. 18, at approximately 1 p.m., where Sabonis will be added to the Trail Blazers Hall of Fame banner displayed in the Rose Garden.

Who's up for some pre-Sabonis shots (of vodka, naturally) beforehand?
