Is Mike Bibby Crazy?

Filed under: Uncategorized — araphael1 @ 10:41 pm

Instead of staying put in Washington with the Wizards, Mike Bibby rather reject the $6.2 million he was supposed to make and get released. Bibby is reported to have high interest in the Heat but this is not the story in my opinion. Only in sports would you see a person pretty much quit and reject $6.2 million. It’s bad enough how much money these athletes make but this is just a slap in the face to all of the people out there who won’t make even make a tenth of that in a few years of work. I understand what Bibby is doing, going to a better team, a better city and better opportunity and he isn’t the first person to do something like this it’s just the fact that he can. I think sometimes athletes don’t realize how lucky they are, I know this is probably a meaningless rant but just wanted to vent that…

  2. Hes joining a team thats making a run for the title if you have followed his career he has been a top notch point guard who has never had any help. Even in atlanta the team was just too young to go deep into the playoffs. he wants a ring that he deserves.

  3. Too bad Mike Bibby won’t help the Heat very much. But I definitely understand his point of view–for sure go to the better squad even if it means less money. That’s better than someone just running for more money, right?
