It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. 

Biebs gets the sweet basketball treatment in a video of 2K Sports' newest NBA video game, NBA 2K13

The pop star tweeted this out to his followers last week:

Having an avatar look like him wasn't the only thing 2K Sports had up their sleeves, because we now have this phenomenal video (h/t The Basketball Jones) to share. 

Think of it as two movies, one of is which more enjoyable than the other. I leave it to you to decide which you would want as the basketball reality. 

It starts with life as it should be, Bieber getting annihilated by Team USA. He gets swatted, stolen from, blocked and utterly humiliated. 

It's beautiful. 

As if real life weren't enough of a grind, we then see the Biebs flip the script like Rocky getting punched one too many times. 

He wakes up from his slumber to start drilling shots and dunking basketballs. It's a horrible nightmare that we hope is not featured in the next incarnation of the 2K series.
