Michael Jordan and Justin Bieber collaborated on what may be the most adorable bro hug shared between the greatest athlete of his respective sport and...some guy named Justin Bieber. 

Belieb it. 

Seriously, because it happened and now the world may never be the same. The reality you once knew is now altered to forever be enriched in the knowledge Bieber and GOAT, Michael Jordan, came together in one magical embrace. 

OK, perhaps I am painting this masterpiece of a moment with far too much enthusiasm, but I am just trying to keep up with you all who will do the same shortly. 

Special thanks to Jocks and Stiletto Jill, who spotted some images from the Bobcats Instagram feed, which I imagine is followed by Jordan and perhaps someone who mistook the account for one with actual bobcats. 

It seems MJ was backstage right before the Biebs took the stage, making us pause and wonder how nobody called the authorities to report a missing Air Jordan, because he was obviously lost and simply meandered upon a Bieber concert. 

Only explanation. 

Bieber, for his part, and quite understandably really, proceeded to lose his mind on Twitter.

i would like to repeat. I met MICHAEL JORDAN tonight! #SWAG
