    what is this thread about again?
    Kleiza, Nathan Drake, Uncharted, Victor Krum, Harry Potter, and basically anything but the OP.

    Yeah, from the broadcast view I couldn't tell Kleiza, Gray and Bargnani apart from each other. Tall, white guys with beards. Val won't help in that regard...
    no i mean when comparing them to nathan drake

    Anyone else think Kleiza looks like Nathan Drake from the Uncharted games?






    I say Bargnani looks more like him and plus they are both Italian

    a little bit. But Bargnani does more, if Bargs gelled his hair forward you can't tell them apart

    I'm going to try not to do the Raps fan thing of hoping that a player will have a breakout year because he made some shots in summer league, or he put on some muscle.

    I'll feel better that way

    Hopefully Lithuania qualifies for the Olympics, it would probably be a big confidence boost for both our guys. Last time LK went off like this he started the season injured and couldnt carry the momentum.
    Raptors brass hopes they wouldnt...

    What better way to gurantee a healthy kleiza then for them to miss out, not to mention them want JV getting here ASAP for summerleague.

    He did this in international play the year before we signed him...the dude plays well there...I'm not expecting much from him in October.
    If he is injured, I definitely agree.

    He has never played healthy for Toronto in 2 seasons - while sitting out the equivalent of over 1 season with micro-fracture.

    If he comes to Toronto healthy in October, we all may be pleasantly surprised. He certainly showed flashes at times.

    he looks more like Viktor Krum... the Bulgarian quidditch player from the Harry Potter movies..

    Yeah, but he injured his knee following his last good tourney. Who knows what Kleiza could've done had he stayed healthy. He could be a nice surprise for us this year (assuming his knee is 100%).

    More like a wolf-lumberjack-serial killer hybrid

    The other Lithuanian big who will also play for the Raptors this Fall, Jonas Valanciunas, had a mixed game. He had a couple dunks, a few rebounds, and a block, but he also was pushed around by the Nigerian bigs, and he missed all 4 of his free throws. Puerto Rico is next in an elimination game and are a physical team.
