With Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry all but certain to win a second straight NBA MVP Award, ballers around the globe, “Wanna be like Steph” — and part-time hoopster Justin Bieber is no different.

''To all the basketball playing trolls online saying i have bad form, first of all I'm not a basketball player, I'm a singer. LOL Second of all, I'll work on my form.''

— Justin Bieber, on his basketball skills

To be like Steph, you need to be able to drain three-pointers like they were gimmes. Lacking that ability, you need to be able to cut your video to make it appear like you can’t miss from beyond the arc. Bieber, with unlimited AV engineering talent at his disposal, opted to take the latter route. Regardless, Bieber’s shooting form is surprisingly decent.


Bieber’s basketball bravado may be less about Curry and more about winning back Selena Gomez who just launched her Revival Tour in Las Vegas on May 6. At least that’s what fans of the two singer are hoping for.

In March, the Biebs posted a throwback Thursday photo of himself and Gomez sharing a kiss that went on to become the most liked picture in Instagram’s history. 3.6 million fans (and counting) approved of the interstellar smooch.
