Former Sacramento Kings guard Mike Bibby went incognito to play a pickup game of "21" against two amateur ballers at a Phoenix, Arizona, Park on a recent Wednesday. It was caught on camera.
Bibby's son, Michael, recorded his father, who is also a former University of Arizona star and is the current Shadow Mountain High School coach. Michael Bibby tweeted out the video, saying, "My dad went to my sisters volleyball practice and played two guys in 21, and told them his name was Chris."
ABC 15 news station in Arizona caught up with one of the two players who took on Bibby.
"Right away I thought to myself: This guy looks really familiar. And I just couldn't put two and two together," Andrew Zehnder, a 28-year-old IT project manager originally from Nebraska told ABC 15. "Neither of us are from Arizona, so he's not like a quote-unquote local star I grew up idolizing. But I definitely know of him."
