What was your welcome-to-the-NBA moment?
My first game [with the Raptors in 2001], in Orlando, they put me in at the end. Troy Hudson came straight at me, scored like five baskets in a row. I couldn't handle him--he was so fast, and I was overwhelmed that I was really in the game.
Your most embarrassing moment?
When I was a rookie, the veterans made me get up at a team breakfast and sing. It was pretty bad. I'm not telling what I sang. It's embarrassing enough.
What's your favorite off-day activity?
My wife [Xiomara] and I go out like we're dating. We go to dinner and to the movies. We're apart a lot, so we try to make the time together special.
If I weren't in the NBA, I'd be ...
back in Fajardo [Puerto Rico, his hometown], probably helping my dad. He's a lawyer.
If I were commissioner for a day, I'd ...
make sure security is better. I've seen things like what happened in Detroit before, but to see it here, that isn't right.
Arroyo, who had surgery to repair a broken nose on Jan. 31, had five assists in a loss to the Nets last Saturday (right).
