Yesterday, Friday, February 16th, Justin Bieber made his return to the basketball court for an NBA All-Star game among his celebrity cohorts. It was the first time in seven years.
Although the singer didn’t win, he appeared to be in a great mood as he hung out with fans and bonded with his fellow teammates.
The 23-year-old Purpose singer was on Team Lakers along with Caleb McLaughlin, Nick Cannon, Jerry Ferrara, Kris Wu, and Drew Scott.
Michael B Scott, from Black Panther’s fame, served as the coach of the team. The opposing side featured the likes of Win Butler, Quavo, Jamie Foxx, Miles Brown, Flea, and Dascha Polanco. Common was just one of their coaches, and his coaching skills apparently were up to par because the Clippers won 75-66.
The Verizon Arena at the LA Convention Center was the location of the game – the place where the Los Angeles Lakers hail from and where Team Lebron will play against Team Stephen on Sunday.

Reportedly, Justin played well but was no match for the Migos rapper, Quavo, as the star of the rap-trio scored a layup on him.
The rapper also stopped the “What Do You Mean” singer from making a basket. Bieber repeatedly missed shots throughout the match but managed to score a few times.
According to the report from E! Online, Quavo was named the MVP at the All-Star Celebrity Game, and Bieber shook his hand and congratulated him on his win.
Quavo said to a reporter from ESPN that Bieber was his “boy,” and claimed the rapper told him he was “ball-hogging,” but if they would’ve been on the same team, it would’ve been the “greatest” collaboration ever.
