UPDATE: WEARING UNIFORM No. 0, MIKE BIBBY WENT 1-4 FROM THE FLOOR, SCORING 3 THREE POINTS, IN HIS MIAMI HEAT DEBUT ON THURSDAY NIGHT. MIAMI, HOWEVER, WAS FELLED BY IN-STATE RIVAL ORLANDO 99-96.
Mustafa Shakur has bragging rights over his fellow University of Arizona alum Mike Bibby. The former (Shakur, 20 points) is higher than the latter (Bibby, 2) on the Washington Wizards’ all-time points-scored list.
Bibby’s tenure in Washington was a brief one — shorter than Shakur, a player who’s playing in D.C. via a 10-day contract.
Bibby joined the Miami Heat on Wednesday after accepting a buyout of more than $6 million to divorce himself from the lowly Wizards after just two games. He’ll add depth to a franchise that looks to contend for an NBA championship. He’s been praised as a team-first guy for leaving that much money behind, especially with a potential league-wide lock-out on the horizon.
An NBA championship for the 13-year-, 5-team-veteran will give Bibby titles at every level, including the ones he earned at Phoenix’s Shadow Mountain High School (1996) and at the University of Arizona (1997).
