Mike Bibby’s hatred for officiating runs deep.
Bibby, the former legendary Arizona Wildcat guard and 15-year NBA veteran, has been spending a lot of time in Arizona post-retirement.
His son, Michael, plays for Bibby’s alma mater, Shadow Mountain H.S. in Phoenix.
On Friday night, Bibby was ejected from his son’s game for arguing calls with the referees, and escorted out of the gym by police while smiling and waving to an adoring crowd. Michael’s team went on to win the game, despite Bibby’s outburst and ejection. Based on Bibby’s reaction, it seems it was well worth it.
The former 2002 Sacramento King knows all too well how poor officiating can change the outcome of a high school game, or the NBA Finals.
