Justin Bieber Visited the Washington Wizards

by November 06, 2012

The Wizards received a pre-concert visit from pop superstar Justin Bieber, who rode a segway through the hallways. Per the WaPo: “A few hours before taking over Verizon Center, pop music sensation Justin Bieber paid a visit to Wizards practice, peeking down from the railing above the court. Martell Webster and John Wall had a chance to meet with Bieber, who is only 10 months younger than rookie Bradley Beal. Bieber later sent out a message to his 29 million-plus Twitter followers that read, ‘pre-concert warmup. ballin with the wizards. #DC’ The pint-sized pop star didn’t actually hit the court, though A.J. Price said he would’ve liked to have seen the youngster come down in some shorts and high tops to show Bieber a few things. As assistant coach Sam Cassell headed to the locker room after practice, he shouted, ‘I got Bieber fever!’ […] Head coach Randy Wittman ended his conversation with reporters when he was asked if he had ‘Bieber fever.’ ‘I know who he is,’ Wittman said as he walked away. Webster said his daughter planned on attending the concert. ‘I said what up to him. I definitely respect him as an artist. I respect what he does, so I said, ‘Hi.’ My daughter has Bieber fever. I don’t.'”
