NBA All Star Game 2011: Justin Bieber wins MVP
It is Justin Bieber’s world and the rest of us are just living in it.
Justin Bieber came to LA a few days ago hoping to take home a trophy. He intended that trophy to be a Grammy Award, but after being shut out at the Grammy Awards he would have to wait a few days when he took home the MVP award at the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game.
Justin Bieber was on a team representing the west scored eight points as he went 3-11 from the field. He added to his line with four assists and two rebounds and was said to spend much of the game pulling up his shorts that were way too big for him and kept falling down to his knees. Bieber’s celebrity teammates included Zac Levi from the TV show Chuck, R&B singer Trey Songz, Rapper Romeo Miller and Rob Kardashian (Kim, Khloe and Kourtney’s brother). Among the pros on Bieber’s team were former NBA stars A.C. Green and Jalen Rose, both of whom Bieber fed passes to that led to baskets. Bieber even pulled up and drained one from the three point line.
While Bieber’s West team fell to the East 54-49 he was voted the MVP of the game and impressed East coach Bill Simmons. Simmons was impressed with Bieber’s game saying that he wasn’t afraid, is light on his feet and played with intensity.
The East Team was made up of NBA Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen, WNBA All-star Tamika Catchings, rapper/actor Common, Nick Cannon (Mariah Carey’s husband), Saturday Night Live’s Jason Sudeikis and actor Michael Rapaport who was last year’s MVP.
