I wonder how Mateen Cleaves feels about that.
Fortunate to still have a job?
So who's Keon going to replace this year?
I would imagine he's going to help ensure that Divac (and maybe Pollard) are still around at the end of the fourth quarter during playoff games, so it's not really "replacing" so much as "filling a potential hole."

CRZ, the Kings are my favorite team, but seeing as I live on the other side of the country, I'm kind of curious as to whether Bibby was steady all year long or he is being rewarded (and rightly so) for his incredible postseason run. Was he this good (or anywhere near it) during the regular season?

What did Bibby's status as a restricted free agent mean, exactly? Of course, unrestricted free agents are able to sign and negotiate with any team that wants them (although only their current team can pay them whatever they want without salary cap restrictions), but what are the restrictions upon restricted free agents?

Bibby and his agent, David Falk, originally sought a deal worth more than $100 million, but the NBA's decreasing salary cap and Bibby's strong desire to stay in Sacramento led to the $80 million arrangement.
You don't hear this every day, a player accepting less than he wants because the team needs him to AND because he wants to stay.
I've always liked Bibby even when he was a Grizzly. Good to see him finally getting the credit he deserves.
