Mike Bibby

Mike Bibby is a name in which put the Grizzlies on the map. However, it was during the Vancouver days. Bibby was not yet an All-Star-caliber player at that particular time, but he was well on his way. Bibby averaged points in the mid-teens per game through is first three seasons, all spent with the Grizzlies. From there, he only became better as an all-around floor general.

Bibby is mostly known for his days with the Sacramento Kings in the early 2000s, but he also boosted the Atlanta Hawks into the NBA Playoffs at the end of his NBA career. He was solid everywhere he played. Now in the BIG3, he honestly appears more fit and buff even after exiting the almighty NBA. This fact alone should have hoops fans glued to Bibby and his Ghost Ballers.

Though Mike already has his own ties to the Grizzlies franchise, another fun fact is that his father — Henry Bibby — was an assistant coach for the Grizzlies for five total seasons, including a couple of the franchise’s all-time best.
