Leon Powe played just two seasons at Cal, but that was enough to establish him as one of the best basketball players in school history, a distinction that will be validated this fall when he is inducted into the university’s athletic Hall of Fame.

After Cal, he spent five years in the NBA with the Boston Celtics, Cleveland Cavaliers and Memphis Grizzlies, a career noteworthy for a couple of breakout performances.  The most famous of which was his 21 points in 15 minutes in a 108-102 victory at the Boston Garden in Game 2 of the 2008 NBA Finals against the Los Angeles Lakers, helping propel the Celtics to their 17th, and most recent, NBA Championship.
