    Please don't call Kleiza the next Hedo. Kleiza actually looks mad when he misses a shot and looks like he's...trying.

    I haven't given up on him yet.

      Tbh, I was really impressed with Kleiza in the Fiba tournament and in preseason, but once the season started he started to rush things and seems to have started to feel the pressure or something. He looks like he's lost the arc and smoothness on the jumper and really just looks rushed out there.

        Dare I say, he's slowly becoming the next Hedo.
        No way. The only thing they have in common is European ancestry.

          allthough i think hedo is the worst free agent signing in recent history, i think the similarities are there between Klieza & turk.. they both performed at a high level under the spotlight(NBA Finals/FIBA Worlds) then both signed with the raps & all but dissapeared on the stat sheet... both werent happy with there roles the rest is left to fall into place..

            I'm not ready to pull the chute on Sonny yet, not by a long shot. A few weak games, recently, sure, but overall his season has been strong, certainly stronger than Kleiza. I can't see Kleiza guarding most threes in this league on a night-in, night-out basis. He's best used as a mismatch sub, imo.

            Is Sonny a starting 3 long term? No. But you could argue he's been the most consistent raptor this season.

              I could be wrong, but I don't think there's been an issue with Kleiza's attitude yet. He always just looks really pissed at himself all the time. He can't honestly go to the media and say he wants more PT without people laughing at him.

              I'll go on the record to say that I think his game will come around.

                I would not agree - yet.

                I've seen nothing thus far that would make one assume he is not a professional and good teammate. He is in a funk - a really, really bad one.

                I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt for the time being.

                Hopefully he realizes, whether he starts this year or not, he is not the starter on a good NBA team.

                    Kleiza has been better since his injury! What games were you watching? The problem was that Kleiza was supposed to be an outside in player for the Raptors. He wasn't making his shots, so he went to the block and had success against smaller 4's.

                    He's the Raptors second best back to the basket players, after Bargnani. Unfortunately, this team can't get the ball to Kleiza and Bargnani with consistency. If he can get into an offensive rhythm and get his 3-point shot back he'll be fine. Unfortunately, he's not being optimally used on offense.

                        That is not quite fair. Sonny did play well when Kleiza went down.

                        Unforunately of late they are trying to one up each other in the game of "Who can play worse!?!?"

                          Fucking Sonny. Honestly man, the effort level pisses me off. He was so lazy in his coverage of Granger in the first quarter that it made me reevaluate my entire opinion of him. How can he not be up for this game? He's playing in a contract year and starting! No other team would give him that opportunity and here he is blowing it. Raise a hand on the contest, fight through a screen, close-out, do something that says you're effort is about 50%.

                            i really thought since day 1 he was an over achiever & would come back down to earth sooner or later...took a little longer then i expected but the results seem the same...hes another example of how a mediocre player at best can market himself on a huge scale in this country... who needs NBA League Pass & US TV coverage when u got the biggest hype machine here in T.O..... ask VC & in a few years Bosh... & if they were to be honest would say "they never got as much love from writers & fans as when they were here"
