Template:NPOV

Mike Bibby (born May 13, 1978 in Cherry Hill, New Jersey) is a basketball point guard for the NBA's Sacramento Kings, and the son of former NBA player and former University of Southern California basketball coach Henry Bibby.

As a freshman at the University of Arizona, Bibby helped lead the Wildcats to the NCAA championship in 1997, scoring 20 points in the title game versus the University of Kentucky. Following his sophomore season, Bibby entered the 1998 NBA draft and was selected by the Vancouver Grizzlies with the second pick.

In his first season with the Grizzlies, Bibby averaged 13.2 points, 6.5 assists and 2.7 rebounds per game earning NBA All-Rookie honors during the labor dispute shortened season. He improved those numbers in his next two seasons with the team, averaging 14.5 and then 15.9 points per game but the Grizzlies remained a cellar dwelling team. On June 27, 2001, the Grizzlies sent Bibby and Brent Price to the Sacramento Kings in exchange for Jason Williams and Nick Anderson following the franchise's move to Memphis. During the 2001-02 season, Bibby helped the Kings to the Western Conference Finals where they lost to the eventual NBA Champion Los Angeles Lakers.

During the 2002-03 season, Bibby was hampered with injuries, playing in only 55 games, but still averaging 15.9 points per game. For the 2003-04 season, Bibby posted some of the best numbers of his career, scoring 1,506 points (18.4 per game) and helping the Kings reach the playoffs. Bibby helped to lift the Kings over the Dallas Mavericks in the first round of the playoffs, scoring a career-playoff-best 36 points in the clinching game 5.
