Kleiza such a beast in international play but is our tank commander in the NBA.

It's because the international game isn't so focused on ISO ball, nor is it on individual D. That's why all our Euro players, Calderon, Kleiza, Bargnani when he played, Val (in Europe) etc... always look so much better outside of the NBA. Kleiza is perfect for international ball. Big enough to play PF compared to the undersized PF's being played by most other countries. Can shoot the pull up, or assisted 3 with the best of them.

Finished off his Olympics with 7 points 9 rebounds 1 block in 16 minutes against Russia only 3 fouls.

Overall in his tournament he averaged about 12 minutes 4.2 points 4.0 rebounds and 0.5 blocks a game.

Not a bad tournament at all. His coach simply didn't give him much minutes. I guess fouls could've been a factor but he never picked up a fourth foul in any of the games.

Let's be real, he had a HORRIBLE tourny. Foul prone and raw as f*ck. But i'm glad he participated nonetheless so that he knows how much work he has to do to hang with the big boys.
