    Thumbs up Carlos Arroyo to play on the Tournament of the Americas

    Primera Hora

    "(El 2006) fue un año largo donde pasé de Detroit a Orlando y la transición es de mucha carga. Después fui a Puerto Rico a jugar para el Equipo Nacional que es lo que más me encanta, representar a mi país. Para mí el Equipo Nacional es primordial en mi carrera y siempre voy a decir presente"


    basically he said that he loves to play for his country, that the NT is primordial for him, that he is tired, but he will be there.

    It's always good to see this kind of attitude, never letting the NT down. How I wish more players would do the same.

    I think the new NT is better than the last year team and we can end in 2nd place.

    Diaz, but his position is crowded and Vasallo's and Ricky's position are weakness on the NT and we are looking forward for one of them to pan out asap

    besides.. Guille is an @ss, he is behaving like an idiot... f..k him and the people around him

    i think vassallo will really show people some things this summer. he's been up here since school let out and he's improved alot. his ball handling and penetration have improved tremendously over the last couple of months.
