Portland Trail Blazers rookie center Meyers Leonard will discuss the viral video that captured a surprise reunion with his brother, a marine who returned home from Afghanistan, in a live interview tomorrow, Oct. 6 on CBS THIS MORNING: SATURDAY (check local listings) on the CBS Television Network.

 

Leonard's brother, Marine Cpl. Bailey Leonard, will also appear live to discuss their emotional reunion.

 

Myers Leonard, 20, was the 11th pick of this year’s NBA draft. He was practicing at the University of Illinois in March when his older brother, Corporal Bailey Leonard, made a surprise visit that brought him to tears. The emotional meeting caught on camera went largely unnoticed until last week when Meyers tweeted a link to the video. It has since gone viral, with more than 500,000 views on YouTube.

 

Anthony Mason and Rebecca Jarvis are the co-hosts of CBS THIS MORNING: SATURDAY. Michael Rosen is the Executive Producer of CBS THIS MORNING: SATURDAY.
