Bibby Blames Martin's Defense

Why wouldn't we want to trade this guy?

Mike Bibby was mad, but not about anything regarding his own uncertain status. He was none too thrilled because I wrote in a game story in Wednesday's paper that he was culpable for letting Boston's Delonte West score 19 of his 23 points in the first half. As it turns out, I was the guilty party.

"I was guarding Rondo!" he yelled. "That was Kevin (Martin). How you gonna say that was me?"

Saying, "I wa guarding Rondo!" is fine. Then explicitly calling out your young teammate, the one whose been the best player on the team all season? Yeah, not so much.

Mike Bibby is not endearing himself to his fans on his way out.
