Video: Justin Bieber takes on Team USA in NBA 2K13


Justin Bieber vs. Team USA? Well, never say never.

Bieber, the idol of tween girls everywhere, is a big hoops fan, is a regular at Lakers games and he’s played in the celelbrity games All-Star weekend — and acquitted himself better than I wanted to give him credit for.

But against Team USA? That only happens in NBA 2K13, as the video above shows. Personally, I enjoyed the first half of the video more than the second (when Beiber starts to make plays, as if that would happen).
