An outstanding ball-handler, playmaker and outside scorer, No. 13 averaged 10.6 points, 4.3 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 2.0 steals per game over four-and-a-half seasons in Sacramento, tying the franchise record for most swipes in a game (eight).

Renowned for his leadership and late-game heroics, Bibby delivered in the clutch time and time again, most memorably drilling the game-winner in Game 5 of the 2002 Western Conference Finals against the rival L.A. Lakers. A tremendous playmaker and distributor, as well as an unstoppable scorer from inside and out, No. 10 would rain spot-up jumpers, beat his defender off the dribble and run the pick-and-roll to perfection. The Sacramento-era assists leader and third-leading three-point maker notched 17.6 points, 5.4 dishes and 1.2 steals over six-and-a-half seasons, connecting on a franchise-record 51 consecutive free throws and drilling a single-game-record nine triples.
