Wonder what former Kings point guard Mike Bibby is up to these days, now that his 14-year NBA career is over?
Apparently, he's become a sports dad - you know the guy, the loud, obnoxious one who yells from the sidelines or stands throughout a game, sometimes berating his kid, sometimes berating the officials.
Watch the video of Bibby being escorted out here.
Bibby has been spending some of his newfound free time watching his son Michael, a freshman, play basketball for Phoenix Shadow Mountain High School, dad's alma mater.
Mike Bibby reportedly got a bit too vocal with the referees during Saturday night's Division II, Section III final against Sunnyslope and was escorted from the Scottdale Coronado High gym by a police officer, according to ABC15 in Phoenix.
As Bibby walked out with a smile on his face, the crowd erupted - though it's not entirely clear if they were all cheering; perhaps some were jeering?
Bibby downplayed the incident.
"I think the ref had a little ego problem before the game started," Bibby explained on Monday's Doug and Wolf Show on Arizona Sports 620, according to ArizonaSports.com. "I kind of got on him early in the game and he told the police to watch me, or whatever. I was just sitting there and I told him, "That was a bad angle, No. 23 wasn't in the play, ref," and he just pointed to the police and the police came and got me.
"It was like he wanted to kick me out. I don't know why. I wasn't giong to argue with the police, but apparently that's all it took."
Shadow Mountain lost to Sunnyslope 60-42, but both teams advanced to this week's opening round of the Arizona Division II state tournament.
No word if Bibby was alone or accompanied by "Team Dime," the posse he ran with in Sacramento when he played for the Kings.
