Justin Bieber looking ridiculous at the Heat game (PIC)

So judging by Justin Bieber's outfit at the Pacers vs. Heat game Monday night, it's pretty clear the kid is losing it.

Hoopsvibe's quick call:  I'm not a hater, and I imagine it's not easy to keep it together when you have $100 million at age 18, but check out the pic below of Biebs at game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals.  Is that lip gloss?

Video: Justin Bieber exposes Steve Nash’s bad defence, Selena Gomez cheers

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: The critics, who have always knocked Steve Nash’s rather pedestrian defence, will have a field day with this.

After all, it’s Justin Bieber, the teenage crooner, crossing-up the two-time MVP and attacking the basket with ease in a pick-up run, and not an NBA player.

Worst of all, Bieber’s handles yield a piercing shriek from Twilight aged girlfriend Selena Gomez that will shatter your eardrums and the hearing of your family’s golden retriever.

Nevertheless, watch the video, protect your ears, and get at HoopsVibe News with thoughts in the comment box below.

Shaq’s Boston state of mind: ‘No (expletive) layups’

O'Neal discussed his philosophy on unstoppable forces meeting immovable objects before Saturday's game, reaffirming the notion that his primary job description is "enforcer."

"That's what I do: No [expletive] layups," said O'Neal, throwing out a 12-letter curse word for effect. "Print it just like that and, if you get fined, come see me, and I'll reimburse you."


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Is Shaquille O’Neal feeling alright? Is he sick? Has he come down with the dreaded Bieber fever (they sang a duet, you know)?

I raise these questions because O’Neal has gladly accepted his role with the Boston Celtics as a defensive cog down the middle.

Touches are irregular. Shots are few and far between. Minutes have varied. And the future Hall of Fame center hasn’t uttered a word.

Instead, he’s bought into the green-and-white’s get-stops system. He’s active on the pick-and-roll. Opponents are paying the price for driving the lane.

It’s only been a few weeks, but O’Neal’s transition from glamorous superstar to blue-collar big is amazing.

He was once the face of the NBA. He was once the straw that stirred the drink for the three-time world champion Los Angeles Lakers. And he once treated defence like a contagious disease.

That was then, this is now. Unsuccessful stops in Phoenix and Cleveland have changed things.

O’Neal is simply trying to win a fifth NBA championship before ‘Father Time’ forces the inevitable: retirement.

So it’s not the flu. Or, an affliction caused by a midget pop star. Shaq’ has changed his stripes because the end is near.

Is Shaq a Bieber fan?

HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: It's official. Shaquille O'Neal has too much time on his hands and no shame.

Far too much time. And absolutely no shame.

Without an NBA contract for 2011, without a focus or goal to train for, the Hall of Fame center has taken to singing duets with teenie-bopper Justin Bieber.


Suddenly, O`Neal`s past musical efforts - like Biological Didn't Bother, I'm Outstanding, and I Know I Got Skillz - don`t seem so, well, misguided.

Hopefully, this isn't the end for O'Neal. Hopefully, he gets another contract and a chance to compete for an NBA Title, instead of competing for the hearts and minds of shreeking girls with Bieber.

Click the link below and watch O'Neal embarrass himself. But be ready to cover your ears when the screaming reaches a decibel that's illegal in 49 states, 10 provinces (we`re still waiting on Ontario to pass legislation), and the rest of the western world.
