Mike Bibby ejected from son’s basketball game, escorted by police (Video)

Mike Bibby ejectedFormer NBA player Mike Bibby was ejected from his son’s high school basketball game and escorted out of the arena by Scottsdale police last Friday, KNXV-TV in Phoenix reports.

According to the TV station, Bibby regularly attends the games of his son, Michael Bibby Jr., who is a freshman at Shadow Mountain High School in Phoenix. In that particular game, Shadow Ridge beat Sierra Linda 98-87 to snap Sierra Linda’s 24-game winning streak.

Bibby Jr. is averaging 9.2 points and 4.1 assists per game for the 24-6 Matadors. The youngster wears jersey No. 10, which is the same number his father wore while playing at Shadow Mountain. Nobody had worn the jersey number since it was retired by the school until this season.

“I think I have a better shot than him,” Bibby Jr. said in a December interview with Pros2Preps.com. “I really hope to make it to the NBA. That’s my dream.”

Bibby Sr. was the No. 2 overall pick by the Vancouver Grizzlies in the 1998 NBA Draft. He played 14 seasons in the NBA and won a national championship during his freshman season at the University of Arizona. Like many other fathers, he has a hard time staying quiet at his son’s games.

    Looks like the Dad was enjoying the attention.  If you can’t behave and let your son have his time then stay at home.
