College career

As a freshman at Arizona, Bibby helped lead the Wildcats to the NCAA championship in 1997,[1] scoring 20 points in the title game versus the University of Kentucky. Following his sophomore season, Bibby entered the 1998 NBA Draft and was selected by the Vancouver Grizzlies with the second pick.[2]

NBA career

Vancouver Grizzlies

In his first season with the Grizzlies, Bibby averaged 13.2 points, 6.5 assists and 2.7 rebounds per game earning NBA All-Rookie honors during the season which was abbreviated by a labor dispute.[3] He improved those numbers in his next two seasons with the team, averaging 14.5 and 15.9 points per game[4], but the Grizzlies continued to struggle. On June 27, 2001, just after the Grizzlies had re-located to Memphis, Bibby and Brent Price were traded to the Sacramento Kings for Jason Williams and Nick Anderson.[5] Currently, Mike Bibby is the last remaining player in the NBA to have played for the Vancouver Grizzlies.

Sacramento Kings

During the 2001–02 season, Bibby guided the Kings to the Western Conference Finals where they lost to the eventual NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers.[6] Bibby's performance during the series, perhaps most memorably his Game 5 game winner,[7] earned him a reputation as a clutch performer, and as a reward, he was granted a 7-year, $80.5 million contract.[8]

During the 2002–03 season, Bibby was hampered by injuries, playing in only 55 games, but still averaged a respectable 15.9 points per game with the Kings going 59–23 and securing second seed in the west.[9] For the 2003–04 season, Bibby posted some of the best numbers of his career, scoring 1,506 points (18.4 per game) and helping the Kings reach the playoffs.[10] Bibby helped to lift the Kings over the Dallas Mavericks in the first round, scoring a career playoff-best 36 points in the clinching Game 5.[11]

Atlanta Hawks

On February 16, 2008 the Atlanta Hawks acquired Bibby in exchange for Shelden Williams, Anthony Johnson, Tyronn Lue, Lorenzen Wright and a 2008 second-round draft pick.[12]

Even though he battled through thumb, heel and quad injuries Bibby put up 14.1 points and 6.6 assists per game while working in an unfamiliar offense to lead the Hawks to their first playoff berth in almost ten years.

On July 7, 2009 Bibby and the Hawks agreed to a three-year deal worth about $18 million.

Career transactions

Personal life

Bibby is the son of former NBA and UCLA player, former USC basketball coach and current Memphis Grizzlies assistant coach Henry Bibby. His mother, Virginia, is a native of Trinidad & Tobago.[14] Bibby is the nephew of former Major League Baseball player Jim Bibby, and the brother-in-law of current New York Knicks guard Eddie House, who was also his Sacramento Kings teammate during the 2004–05 season.[15] He also has two cousins in sports: Real Salt Lake forward Robbie Findley and wide receiver Shaun McDonald of the NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers.[3] Bibby and his wife, Darcy, have four children, Michael, Janae, Mia, and Nylah.
