The former NBA point guard wasn’t a household name when he played alongside LeBron and D-Wade, but as his reggaeton career starts to take off, he’s got millions of fans dancing to his sounds.
Carlos Arroyo was a good basketball player. He was mostly known for leading the Puerto Rican national team to an upset victory over the United States in 2004, Team USA’s first Olympics loss in 16 years. He also carved out a nice career in the NBA. He only averaged 6.6 points per game for his career, but he hung around for nine years and even spent the majority of the 2010-11 season—LeBron James’ first in South Beach—as the Miami Heat’s starting point guard.
