Mike Bibby escorted by police from son's high school basketball game

Former NBA player Mike Bibby is not popular on the internet. There is a widespread feeling that he is unlikeable, despite never having been a superstar and having been a prominent member of one of the most likeable teams of the last decade, the Kings of the early 2000s. Nonetheless, people will no doubt be amused to discover that Bibby had himself a little problem this week at his son's high school basketball game. 

Mike Bibby got ejected and then escorted. Ejected from the game by the refs and escorted out of the gymnasium by Scottsdale police.  

Of course, nearly 20 years ago, Bibby led Shadow Mountain to its first state basketball championship (followed by a national title at UA and then a 14-year NBA career).  

This season, Bibby has been attending games to watch his son -- point guard Michael Bibby. 

As usual, Bibby was in the stands for this sectional game. He was arguing with the refs until he was forced to leave with a police escort, thereby creating quite the memorable moment -- for all the wrong reasons.

So that's awkward. 

Poor kid, Mike Bibb Jr., is just a freshman. He's got three more years of this. Kid's team won, though, beating Sierra Linda.

Also, Mike? You're at your kid's highschool game. There's no reason to have the gigantic boulder in your ear. We respect the style, but you're the dad. That's just a bad look, man.
