So is Arroyo, who says he is "very, very eager" for the season to start. This is a guy who called Jazz G.M. Kevin O'Connor this summer, not the other way around, to make it clear he wanted to stay in Utah. He's not only accessible to the media, but he also offers to drive over to a reporter's hotel for an interview. He's so pumped to be the face of the Jazz that he got his hair trimmed the afternoon before media day so he'd look more presentable. Fittingly, for a player who's been converted into a throwback, it was a neat-and-clean buzz cut.
