Ibn Notes: Arroyo went from a undrafted player that worked his way onto the Utah Jazz roster, playing third string guard behind future Hall-Of-Famer John Stockton.  Once Stockton retired, Arroyo was able to display his skills and has carved out a journeyman career in the NBA playing with the Raptors, Denver, Detroit and Orlando.  Perhaps the highlight of his career was Arroyo leading Puerto Rico's blowout of the USA National Team in the 2004 Olympics.  Arroyo scored 24 points in the game and featured the famous photo, seen in this profile, of Arroyo showing his national pride by puffing out his Puerto Rico jersey. Ibn Notes: Arroyo is married to his wife Xiomara and makes his off-season in Florida. He holds numerous records for his collegiate career in Florida.
