Although Mike Bibby never played during the Olympics, he was an integral member of Team USA in 2003, a squad that would have to earn Olympic Games qualification for the United States after finishing a disappointing sixth place in the 2002 FIBA Tournament. Bibby helped Team USA go undefeated in the Summer games of 2003, averaging 4.8 assists per contest. During those games, Bibby wore this White/Red player exclusive colorway of the Air Jordan IX; it features a tonal white upper with patent leather on the mudguard, with red accents on the heel and Jumpman logo. It also features Bibby’s ’10’ logo stitched on the heel. In the following 2003-04 NBA Season, Bibby would wear another Air Jordan IX PE – this Black/Purple colorway we showed you some time ago.
