Even though Mike Bibby sat out the 2012-13 season, he hopes that an NBA team will give him one more chance. The longtime point guard and Sacramento Kings all-time assists leader told The Kings Blog's Alex Kramers that he'd like to play another year before getting into coaching.
Watching his son play at his own alma mater, Shadow Mountain High School in Phoenix, Bibby's only blip on the radar last season was getting tossed from a high school game for arguing with referees from the bleachers.
Bibby averaged 17.6 points and 5.4 assists with Sacramento, most notably leading a team featuring Chris Webber, Vlade Divac and Peja Stojakovic into clashes with the Los Angeles Lakers. His shot in Game 5 of the 2002 Western Conference Finals against the Lakers might have been the play to etch deepest into Kings fans' memories.
Bibby discussed that shot with Kramers and also said that one of the toughest players to match up against was Stephon Marbury.
The 35-year-old Bibby played 14 seasons in the NBA and was drafted by the Vancouver Grizzlies following one year at Arizona, where he won an NCAA championship. He was most recently with the New York Knicks in 2011-12.
