On his favorite memory at Sleep Train Arena: Tebbs: “By far it would be Game 5 in the 2002 Western Conference Finals when [Mike] Bibby hit the shot. It’s funny because when I worked during the Finals at Golden State last season, Warriors fans would ask me, ‘Dude, is this as loud as Arco [Arena] was back in the day?’ and it’s comparable, but it will never be as loud as it was during Game 5. It was just one of those iconic moments that will forever live in Sacramento Kings lore that people will never forget.”
Peja Stojakovic on his favorite memories in the building: “I have so many. But the shot Mike Bibby hit off of Chris Webber’s hand off that sealed Game 5 in the (2002) Western Conference Finals was one of the biggest shots for our team.” On being in attendance for the final regular season home game with fellow Kings legends on April 9: “You’re going to see a lot of generations of legends – players from all the way back in 1985 to now. There’s going to be so many different teams and so many different stories. I think it will be great for fans to get a chance to (see) all of those players that night.”
On what was most special to him about Sleep Train Arena: Bibby: “Just how the fans were. You know, I’ll never forget the team we had here and the fans we had here. It was the best of both worlds as far as having the best fans in the NBA and the best teammates in the NBA. When I was traded to Atlanta, I brought what I learned here to the younger guys in Atlanta and made that fun. I made it like a little Sacramento.” On a time where the fans made an impact on the game: Bibby: “The playoffs. It was always packed and everyone had cowbells. You could see the looks on Phil Jackson’s face and everyone’s face when they couldn’t hear. It was such an amazing feeling.”
It’s called “The Basketball Tournament,” and the simplicity is the winner-take-all $1 million format. Basically, as long as you’re not involved with the NBA at the time, you’re good to go, with the 97-team event opening July 10, the latter stages to be televised by ESPN. From a Heat perspective, among those to surface for the event include 2006 championship point guard Jason Williams, former Heat bit players Jamario Moon and Mike James, and, yes, even Smush Parker. Williams heads a Gators alumni team that also is scheduled to feature Erik Murphy, Matt Walsh, Alex Tyus and Lee Humphrey. Former Heat guard Mike Bibby has also been added to that mostly Gators squad.
