The Utah Jazz’s 0-4 start is the worst since the team moved from New Orleans in 1979. The roster was designed to not win many games, but there’s a difference between that and not winning any games. Even if their record isn’t their highest priority this year, the glaring talent hole at the point guard position affects what the rest of the team can do.

How, for one year, the Jazz became the accidental tankers
After the 2002-2003 season, when Jerry Sloan guided the “worst roster in the NBA” to a 42-40 season, the Jazz then landed two significant free agents in Carlos Boozer and Mehmet Okur, and they had a good draft on paper with Kris Humphries and Kirk Snyder. They re-signed solid role-players Carlos Arroyo...

On October 16th Maccabi Haifa will be coming to Minnesota to take on the TimberWolves. While my synagogue (Temple of Aaron) and many other Jewish organizations get ready for the big game, I thought I would make an all-time Israel team made up of some Israelis and some non-Israelis who were in the Holy Land to play ball.

Carlos Arroyo suffered an injury while playing for Turkish team Besiktas.
Sasha Vujacic an all-star game MVP? BiE knows it sounds crazy, but that’s what went down this weekend in Turkey during the TBL season break. In a game that pitted foreigners against Turks, the former NBA champion went for 24 points and dished five assists in a 140-139 barnburner settled by Besiktas’ Carlos Arroyo’s last-second three.
Unfortunately, BiE can’t dig up any highlights...

Q: With all this concern at point guard, do you think we will have a Carlos Arroyo comeback to the Heat? — Miguel.
A: I have to admit, I found the Heat’s treatment of Carlos somewhat confounding over the years. Yes, he does not have the 3-point range of Chalmers, but he hit just about every shot he needed to hit when he was here. And while he’s certainly not a defensive stopper...

Carlos Arroyo, BOS, UFA: If the Knicks are unable to sign Jose Juan Barea or another solid backup PG, they might be stuck with Carlos Arroyo. He’s interested in them, but I doubt they’re interested in him just yet.
