Justin Bieber hoops with CP3, Durant and Melo

Posted by Royce Young

Justin Bieber took a break this weekend crossing over Steve Nash and singing songs that make 13-year-old girls cry on command to play in Ludacris' charity All-Star game in Atlanta.

And while Bieber was able to sneak into the highlight mix of the game, it was mainly just him running aimlessly around the court while Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, John Wall, Chris Paul, Brandon Jennings and Josh Selby put together another nasty reel of dunks.

So it's not so much about Bieber this time. That is, unless you're a 13-year-old girl. Enjoy yet another random NBA hoop mix from a summer full of random NBA hoop mixes.

Video: Justin Bieber crosses Steve Nash

Posted by Royce Young

Worlds are colliding here. It's Steve Nash versus Justin Bieber. Nash, the Bieber of the NBA with his cult-like following of NBA fanboys that fawn over his pure jumper and immaculate court vision. Bieber, the Nash of pop music with his flashy hits and cult-like following of teenage girls that fawn over his dance moves and baby face.

Nash and Bieber -- who has developed himself quite the baller reputation, especially with his MVP award from last year's Celebrity Game -- were playing in some celebrity pickup thing and while I'm sure Nash wasn't exactly giving it everything, Bieber gets him good with a crossover. That's not going to help Nash's reputation for being a soft defender.

This game was in preparation for a charity event taking place in Atlanta Sunday called the Ludaday Weekend Celebrity Basketball Game, hosted by rapper Ludacris. Kevin Durant is reportedly on Bieber's team with other stars like Carmelo Anthony, Allen Iverson and Chris Paul all partaking.

And of course, Nash. But he may not want any part of guarding Bieber after that. Let CP3 check him.

Justin Bieber to play in All-Star celebrity game

Pop star Justin Bieber will play in the NBA All-Star celebrity game. Posted by Ben Golliver. justin-bieber

Back in October, we noted that drawers-dropping pop singer Justin Bieber got the chance to hold Phil Jackson's NBA championship ring. Little did we know that this would be just the beginning of an influential year of hoops for Bieber.

As it turns out, the adolescent crooner will be headlining the 2011 NBA All-Star Celebrity game, according to the Associated Press.
The newest name to play Showtime: Justin Bieber. The 16-year-old pop singer will join Magic Johnson, WNBA hoopsters and stars from film, music and television Feb. 18 in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game at Staples Center in Los Angeles. 
Former NBA stars Scottie Pippen and Bill Walton, actors Ty Burrell and Jason Alexander and rapper Common will be among those also taking part.
NBA.com has posted the full list of participants.
  • ESPN Analyst Magic Johnson (NBA legend and Hall of Famer)
  • Grammy-nominated artist Justin Bieber (pop artist)
  • Scottie Pippen (NBA legend and Hall of Famer)
  • Bill Walton (NBA legend and Hall of Famer)
  • AC Green (NBA legend)
  • B.J. Armstrong (NBA legend)
  • Chris Mullin (ESPN Analyst and NBA legend)
  • Jalen Rose (ESPN Analyst and NBA legend)
  • Jimmy Kimmel ("Jimmy Kimmel Live!")
  • Ty Burrell ("Modern Family")
  • Rob Kardashian ("Keeping Up with the Kardashians")
  • Zach Levi ("Chuck")
  • Jason Alexander ("Curb Your Enthusiasm")
  • Common (Just Wright)
  • Bill Simmons (ESPN.com columnist)

The two GMs charged with selecting the teams will be late-night host Jimmy Kimmel and writer Bill Simmons, who already joked on Twitter, "Who gets Bieber?" Presumably, a draft-day trade involving cash and conditional future picks will be required to obtain the top overall pick and the right to obtain Bieber's basketball skillz.

Following typical blog format, this is the portion of the post where I am supposed to make a basketball-related pun based off of one of Bieber's song titles. Unfortunately, I don't know a single one of his songs and I don't want our IT guys to start wondering why I'm googling his name.

So we'll just wrap this up here.

Lakers Ring Ceremony: A visual retrospective

Lakers receive diamond-drenched rings to celebrate championship, fifth for Kobe Bryant.
Posted by Matt Moore

It was a sweet set of memories, each more delicate than the last. A team, brought together by fate, forged in the fires of comradery, celebrating their triumphant... okay, that's enough of that. So the Lakers got their rings last night in what was really a pretty cool little ceremony where they all introduced one another. Here's what happened, in a set of images to last a lifetime.

Justin Bieber holds Lakers championship ring

Pop-star holds Jackson championship ring, carries on grand tradition of worthy champions.Posted by Matt Moore

A few names. Karl Malone. John Stockton. Antonio McDyess. Steve Nash. Dirk Nowitzki. These are players who have played the game at a ridiculously high level, given themselves in pursuit of a championship. They have never held a championship ring. But you know who has?

This guy.

In an interview before the start of the 2nd quarter on TNT with daughter of Lakers owner Jerry Buss Jeanie Buss, the well-known personality, Lakers official and girlfriend to Phil Jackson related the story of how as she was carrying Phil's 2009-2010 championship ring off the floor after their ring ceremony, he asked to hold it. That's right. Justin Bieber has held Phil Jackson's championship ring. This is the world you live in.

Hey, it's just jewelry.

Shaq and Justin Bieber face off in a dance-off

Posted by Royce Young

In a battle of dancing titans, Shaquille O'Neal finally faced off against Justin Bieber in what has to be the most anticipated dance-off compeition since Starsky went head-to-head with Dancin' Rick. These are the type of things that suddenly become very important in early September. Much like Shaq wrestling a small child.

We all know Shaq can move, as evidenced by his skills showcased in Phoenix at the 2009 All-Star Game versus Dwight Howard and LeBron. Shaq used a lot of the same moves against Bieber, topping the performance off with a top drawer hat flip. Of course Shaq was declared the winner but later in the show, Bieber played Shaq in basketball and somehow, Bieber wins. Either I'm watching scripted televison or living in some sort of alternate universe.
