Mike Bibby ejected from son’s game for arguing with officials

Maybe you’ve been saying, “I wonder what happened to Mike Bibby?” If you have that question may raise bigger issues about what you do and should spend your free time thinking about, but maybe you did ask that.

We have your answer — getting ejected from his son’s high-school basketball games.

Bibby (the Arizona Wildcat legend) is out of the NBA and back living in Arizona (in Phoenix, closer to ASU), where he is apparently a regular watching his son play high school ball. He was at a game this weekend and the elder Bibby couldn’t stop arguing with the referees, got ejected then escorted out by police.

We have the video evidence.

By the way, if you are about to write in the comments “He can still play, why doesn’t Team X pick up Bibby?” I suggest you go back and watch film from his last three years in the league. Then rethink your position.

Hat tips to The Big Lead and Cowbell Kingdom for posting this.

    this is a good example of what can happen when keepin it real goes wrong.

    Some thin-skinned ref couldn’t take being corrected and tossed Bibby. I’m a high school basketball coach and trust me, there’s some guys out there who literally don’t know the rules.

      And you know this how? The opposite could be said, although it would still be without any evidence or merit, that Bibby is full of himself and thinks his son can do no wrong. Again I am not saying thats true because I have no clue. Sure refs suck sometimes but we have no idea of the circumstances that led to his ejection.

      In my experiance, there’s a hell of alot more coaches and fans that don’t know the rules than there are referees like that. Bet you are one of them.

        In my experience, spelling is a high indication of IQ. Especially when it comes to simple words. I bet you write definately too.

        Skids, you jerkoff, you have no idea who I am or where I’ve coached. Go back to being an internet gangster in mom’s basement.

      There are also a ton of coaches and parents who don’t know the rules. I’ll bet Bibby is one of those parents, particularly since he always struck me as whiny, constantly complaining, and overrated during his playing days. People would always say he was so good, and I’d always reply, “OK, but what exactly does he DO?”

  8. phillyphannn83 - Feb 12, 2013 at 3:59 AM

    He can still play, why doesn’t Team X pick up Bibby?
