Joakim Noah’s favorite five of all time: ‘I got Shaq… Let’s just make things clear like… Shaq Daddy. Then I’m gonna go with Dirk [Nowitzki] because now you got the stretch and you got the big fella in there. And then I got MJ [Michael Jordan] on one wing and I got Kobe [Bryant] on the other wing. And who’s running that? White Chocolate [Jason Williams].
Mike Bibby sat down with CBS Local’s DJ Sixsmith and talked about his run with Sacramento — a fit that was comfortable for Bibby right away. Even though trading for him meant bidding farewell to Jason Williams, a guy Kings fans were in love with. “The guys treated me like I was there for five, six, seven years,” Bibby said. “I got there and Jason Williams was a prized possession in Sacramento and when I got traded for him, I just wanted to fit in, I didn’t know if the fans would like me or if the team would like me. In my first year we had the best record in the West. I had the best time of my life and my career playing in Sacramento with those guys. I think Sacramento is the best team I played on.”
Bibby averaged 17 points and 5.3 assists during his seven-year run in Sacramento, helping the team make the playoffs five times before being dealt to the Atlanta Hawks in February of 2008. In a recent interview with CBS Local’s DJ Sixsmith, Bibby reflected back on his time with the Kings. “The guys treated me like I was there for five, six, seven years. I got there and Jason Williams was a prized possession in Sacramento and when I got traded for him, I just wanted to fit in, I didn’t know if the fans would like me or if the team would like me. In my first year we had the best record in the West. I had the best time of my life and my career playing in Sacramento with those guys. I think Sacramento is the best team I played on.”
