Carlos Arroyo’s ESPN chat

New, comment

Carlos Arroyo chatted today on ESPN's Sportsnation. Nothing earth-shattering, just a dozen or so softballs lobbed in his direction, but it's still too bad that it's behind the ESPN Insider curtain and that most of you won't be able to see it.

Here are the highlights:

Joel Dielman, Toledo, OH: Carlos, it seems like you are noticeably a lot more comfortable this year than last. Does that have to do with the new coach, new system, or what?

Carlos Arroyo: It's has to do a lot with the new coach. Larry is a little more controlling with his players. All coaches are different. But I fell great this year with Flip.

Geoff: Detroit, MI: Carlos, we love you in Detroit. Best backup PG in the league. Here's a question: Would you rather be starting for a bottom team or be in your situation now with the Pistons?

Carlos Arroyo: I think that God has put me in this position right now and be on a winning team. It doesn't get better than this. Every player would like to be in a position like this. I don't know my future and living my present. Definitely in the future, I would like to be a starter. That motivates me. I'm young and I just want to play and take advantage of my youth.

Jerry Troy, MI: Hey Carlos, Which player on the pistons take on the leadership role on the team?

Carlos Arroyo: That would be Chauncey. He's the leader of our team. He's the point guard. He gets everybody going. He gets everybody on the court. When we need a bucket, we go to him. He's shown the type of leadership we need. Everybody's a leader on this team, too. We're one of the best teams in the NBA and we've shown that.
