Justin Bieber Posts Fake Basketball Trick Video, Is Not an 'AND1 Mixtape' Star

Justin Bieber is still playing basketball, and as usual, his competition is stiff.

The world’s favorite petty criminal teenage pop singer recently posted video from a one-on-one basketball game against his manager, Scooter Braun.

Paul Sacca of Next Impulse Sports spotted Bieber's video on Instagram. Unsurprisingly, Braun nearly shattered his kneecaps in trying to keep up with the transcendent street baller.

The Canadian pop star blew past his stumbling, bumbling manager with an around-the-back fake-out that would bring Hot Sauce to tears, albeit for all the wrong reasons.

Clearly, you can’t stop Bieber; you can only hope to contain him and keep his downstairs out of the national media (neither of which are Braun’s fortes).

Consider this another notch in the basketball bedpost for Bieber. The pop star is sneakily good at basketball when playing against people with a vested interest in his success.

Who can forget Shaq losing to Bieber in 2010?

Or the time he worked Usher over in 2009?

The question must be asked: Has anyone ever actually D’d up Bieber? 

Has a single, solitary soul ever been brave enough to put forearm to spine and teach this young man an honest lesson about love and basketball? Or has Bieber’s life been one long, solo shootaround against a straw man afraid of looking like a jerk?

To date, only one man has had the guavas to step up and bring the reckoning down on Bieber’s jump shot. And that man was Scottie Pippen.

We salute you, Scottie. Your block at the 2011 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game was the closest thing to parental supervision Justin Bieber has ever had.


Real men block Bieber.
