For most of his career, Francis Arnaiz was popular for being half of the most popular tandem to ever play in the league. Starsky and Hutch. Robert Jaworski and Francis Arnaiz. The gutsy guard often played big for his size and was one of those players who would use intimidation to go one up against his opponent. Who wouldn't, if he had an equally tough partner like Jaworski by his side?
But even Norman Black said that what made Arnaiz great was the fact that he could take as much as he could dish off. He never backed down from a challenge. Together with Jaworski, Arnaiz was a thrill to watch and pair was one of the top draws of the league way back then.
