It’s not a Grammy — but it beats a Razzie! Beliebers are rejoicing upon news that their pint-sized Banged Messiah made a big splash at Friday’s NBA Celebrity All-Star Game. Justin Bieber earned the Most Valuable Player title during one of the most-anticipated events of this year’s All-Star Weekend.
The “Eenie Meenie” singer scored eight points, four assists and two rebounds in the East vs. West faceoff at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Sadly for West Coast B-Ball fans even a high-energy showing by music’s most famous teenager wasn’t enough to ward off the Magic Johnson-coached, Scottie Pippen-led Easters. Bieber missed a 3-pointer that would have tied it with 30 seconds to go. Afterward, the almost 17-year-old was hurried off the court by burly security guards.
The West lost 54-49.
