Via email, Sam Amick of The Bee was kind enough to clear up the issue regarding Mike Bibby's blame-passing on Sactown's backcourt defense against Boston:
He was upset, but it was somewhat in jest. I admitted to him that I was extra-busy during that game and maybe remembered incorrectly, which was a bad idea since he's been letting me have it all day. He wasn't really spitting venom at Kevin, though, just crackin' on him.
That puts the issue to rest, it seems. Wow, are we getting all warm and fuzzy about Mike Bibby or what?
