Justin Bieber calls play-by-play during Lakers-Spurs game, appears on kiss cam
Justin Bieber attended the Lakers-Spurs game on Tuesday night in Los Angeles, but he didn’t just sit in his expensive seats and watch the game. Oh no. Bieber got in a little work as a broadcaster on Lakers radio.
The singer and entertainer joined John Ireland and Mychal Thompson on the 710 ESPN Radio broadcast. At first he started off in an analyst role, but he was so eager to call the game he took over play-by-play duties after a few seconds.
Bieber struggled through his first minute of action and said “this is harder than it looks.” He spent about three minutes calling the action and worked in a few catch phrases.
On a basket by Stephen Jackson, he said “boom goes the dynamite,” and he used the phrase two more times during his call. When Pau Gasol recorded a block, Bieber said “get out of his face.”
After he was done with his brief stint as a play-by-play broadcaster, Bieber returned to his second-row seat where he was featured on the kiss cam along with girlfriend Selena Gomez:
Bieber, who is a big Lakers fan, said he plans to attend the team’s next game — a home contest against the Thunder on Sunday. He also promoted his new album which is due out in June.
