Heat Re-signs Carlos Arroyo

Believe it or not, signing Arroyo nearly gives the Heat a complete roster for ’10-11. From Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel: “Point guard Carlos Arroyo, who last season added a Latin beat to the Miami Heat, Wednesday told the Sun Sentinel that he is flying back from his native Puerto Rico to re-sign with the team, with the formalities expected to be addressed Thursday. A fan favorite whose appearances at AmericanAirlines Arena are accompanied by the playing of El Gran Combo’s “Fiesta de Pilito.” Arroyo started the Heat’s final 21 regular-season games and all five playoff games against the Boston Celtics. ‘Looking forward to a championship!!!’ Arroyo wrote in an email. ‘Excited!!!!’”

    What about Rafer Alston? Is he coming back too? On another note, I read somewhere that Chalmers is currently injured. Any news on how long he’ll be out?

    Second, I mean. And: let’s wait and see Carlos, you’re still miles away from winning a championship. Sorry!

    Second, I mean. Carlos thinks they’re already champs? We’ll see, CarLOSE! Way too early! Remember the Shaq – Malone – Kobe – Glove Lakers.

    Good move for the HEAT… Alston should move with the heat as well, so that when they “win’ against the magic… payback will be a B!%c# hahahahahaha! that’s if they win. :P i’m not a heat fan… but i like their chances. :)

    Chalmers is out a few weeks with a sprained ankle.

    Should I not be surprised that Riley is filling the roster out quite nicely.

    I really hope New York somehow acquires Chris Paul.

    Flaco jimenez!! I bet nobody knows who that is. Anyways, miami looks nearly set, proly need another sg

  • Bruno

    Carlitos is way better than Chalmers
    NOW they have a PG

    what’s up with these guys signing for less money? when they’re 40 and broke they can sell the championship trophy for 50 bucks in a pawn shop.

    To Me ? Besides Wade and Lebron, the roster isn’t anything to write home about. Everyone else on the roster has a question mark surrounding them. Bosh- is soft, never won anything. Big Z couldnt defend the basket if his life depended on it. I like Joel Anthony to start over him. Chalmers is young and untested. Haslem is solid but has is own limits dealing with bigger powerfowards(Gasol,Garnett). There is no one on the bench to make an impact. Arroyo is only good during international ball. They would have been better off signing Jason williams.I refuse to hop on the heat bandwagon until they actully win something and I don’t see it happening in 2010-11. Go Rockets Yao Ming !!!

    @Shano: Re: carlos’ tendencies to be waaay better at international games than the NBA, I completely agree. It boggles my mind that, everytime he’s playing for Puerto Rico he’s balling his ass off and basically putting that national team on his back. But when he returns to the states, it all suddenly vanishes. I saw him once play in the worlds and sh!t the guy was near unstoppable going to the basket, hitting mid range Js and setting guys up. Then I heard he was coming to Orlando and thought, yeah he’s closer to home now, maybe things’ll be different from when he was in Utah. Then thud, another lackluster season behind an emerging Jameer. Then in Miami, same thing. I dunno what Carlos’ deal is, but I’ve seen him play loads better than what he’s shown in the NBA. Hope now teamed up with the Nazgul he finally shows up..

    Shano: it seems you’re trying to convince yourself that Miami is no that strong.

  • jose

    They got one roster spot open and 3 names that come to mind to fill that spot:

    White Chocolate
    De’Sean Butler
    Jerry Stackhouse

    I’ve looked at the roster and saw some Kenny Hansborouck or sumthin along those lines. Any one kno this dude?

  • Groves

    Yewwwwwwwwwwwwwww! Carlos is brilliant… one of my favourite players

  • Groves

    now we need one more point guard and a backup wing player. so sign jason williams, rafer alston, mike james or penny hardaway at point guard (williams is my main man) and then sign T-Mac to the minimum

  • flash

    i hope the heat signs peja if he’s available

  • Coney Islander

    Let’s all thank our lucky stars that Chris Paul can’t end up there! You’d have to change their names to the “Miami National Team Globetrotters”!

    @ T_money) Im not trying to convince myself of anything. Im jus totally unimpressed in what Pat Riley has put together. Its not like he had alot of wiggle room. He had no choice but to sign scrubs…. Yea, I said it SCRUBS to surround Dwade and Lebron. Bosh isn’t a scrub but the rest of the roster totally is.

    Hahahaha, Miami Heat aka the Nazghul. I luv that nickname, hope it catches on.

  • Rubel

    Carlos is dangerious

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    If you think Haslem and Mike Miller are scrubs, you don’t know basketball.
    Z is borderline, as is chalmers.
    The rest of the cats are pretty much scrubs, although they are servicable scrubs. They ain’t Mbenga or Adam Morrison. Shout out to Jay Bilas on Morrison.

  • http://Yahoo Shanoooooo

    @ AllenP…. Ok Ok, Maybe I was a little rough for calling Haslem a scrub but everyone else is including Mike Miller. If he not hitting a wide open shot what else is he gonna contribute ? At least Chalmers has upside still. Every other player the Heat signed is well past their prime.
