By now, it's not news that when Justin Bieber's name becomes attached to something, people sort of lose their minds. So the announcement today that Bieber will be playing in the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game tomorrow night? Yeah, it has fans excited.

NBA All-Star Weekend is an annual star-studded event. This year, it will take place in Los Angeles -- so Bieber doesn't have to travel far. The game will be played at L.A.'s Verizon Up Arena beginning at 7 p.m. Eastern on ESPN. Last week, the initial line-up for the Celebrity All-Star Game was announced, including actors Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx, Common, and many more. The two teams —The Clippers and Lakers, of course named after L.A.'s two home NBA franchises — will be coached by ESPN personalities Katie Nolan and Rachel Nichols.

Previously, Bieber played in this game in 2011. Beliebers held Bieber up as the game's MVP, which was chosen through fan tweets and texts. The world will see how much JB has upped his game in seven years.
