I'm really interested to see a healthy Kleiza play. I can see him being a starting SF.


I'd be OK with Kleiza starting at SF and was healthy and playing like he was in preseason, with JJ coming off the bench, if JJ atleast plays like last year.

I like Kleiza, but man I hate blind fanboys. You, OP13 and PerFex gave him an A... Why...?
I believe in him.

LT: nepyk, kad čia rašau ne angliškai, bet prastai moku todėl noriu paaiškinti, kad Kleiza yra geras žaidėjas, bet praeitą sezoną sunkiai dirbo pasaulio čempionate, jam visada skaudėjo kelius, Achilo sausgysles, o tu žinai dėl ko taip būna. Reikėjo atnaujinti kremzlę, o taip būna dėl nežmoniškų krūvių kuriuos jis patyrė. Po gero poilsio kaip šis Kleiza, aš manau, kad jis rinks daug taškų, pamatysi. Aš tikiu juo.

At his age, level of experience and recognized skill offensively his contract is just fine and we haven't seen his best play yet. He needs time which is likely what this lockout will help do. Here's hoping for the playoffs next season with this core:

C: Valanciunas/Davis/Alabi
PF: Bargnani/Johnson/Evans
SF: Kleiza/Johnson/Weems
SG: DeRozan/Barbosa
PG: Calderon/Bayless

Plus whatever draft pick we get for the lost 2011-2012 season and free agency, when it finally happens, which could actually shake quite a bit up with all the players that will sign overseas.

when he was healthy he was inconstant and had bad shot selection

He only played 39 games, and he was injured, how can I rate him? Believe me i'm not a big fan of Kleiza's game, he was awful this season even if we are comparing to his Denver years, and now he is(was) even more complete player.. The only thing I know is: if he will fully heal his injury, he will play better next season, thats for sure.

He injured his knee during the first game of the preseason... against the suns when he banged knees with Grant Hill.

Sorry but giving someone an A just because you believe in them makes no sense.

Either way, D from me on the simple fact he never got a chance to play healthy, but meh.

Because I believe him. He was in Lithuania national team facking good player, in Europe one of the best player(But he don't get facking MVP....). And he came to NBA. He play in Euroleague, team game league, and then he came to Bargnani team. AND HE PLAY WITH INJURY. Why then he play in denver, he was better? He was on the bench, in his position was Carmelo Anthony, so why he was better?

I'm going to give him a B because he had the potential to be a great players for the Raps. As it stands though, I don't think he'll ever reach that potential due to his serious knee injury. I could be wrong... hopefully I am. He is on the books for 4 years.
