Knicks Sign Mike Bibby

In Free Agency on December 11, 2011 at 1:39 pm

ESPN reports

Mike Bibby’s agent, David Falk, confirmed that the former Miami Heat point guard and 13-year veteran will sign with the New York Knicks on a one-year deal at the veteran’s minimum of $1.4 million.

“I’ve been trying for about six years to get him playing for (coach Mike) D’Antoni, but at the time this guy named (Steve) Nash was blocking us,” Falk told ESPN The Magazine’s Chris Broussard. “I’ve always felt Mike would flourish in his offense.”

Terrible signing for New York.

No rubber left on those tires. It’s time, past time, for Mike Bibby to retire from the NBA.

At this juncture in his career, Mike Bibby is one of the worst defenders in the league at his position + a sub-par rebounder + a limited passer/playmaker who can only function as a setup guard + a deadly spot up shooter but cannot score in any other way.

Mike Bibby makes more negative contributions (defense, rebounding, limitations offensively) to his team than positive ones (shooting, setup play). He has no business being on an NBA court anymore.
