Kleber is an "excellent player who is still often underestimated". The Big Man is "perhaps the best European defender in history in the NBA. He can defend point guards as well as center, and everything in between - his presence on the defensive is incredible".
Nelson hoped for Doncic misses
Nelson also raved about the new franchise player Luka Doncic.
"I wake up very happy every morning, that's right. I thought that we would never have a chance with the fifth pick in the draft," said the 58-year-old - and admits: "I have the EM ( EM 2017 , when Slovenia became European champions, editor's note ) and hoped that Luka didn't hit a throw and played horribly. Honestly. I cheered every time he didn't score or looked somehow unathletic and slow. "

"You always try to learn from other organizations. I have good relationships with Bayern, for example," said Nelson: "FC Bayern is a machine - even in several sports.
