Don't ever say Justin Bieber doesn't have game.
The pint-sized pop star worked the floor at the Los Angeles Lakers' home opener against the Houston Rockets on Tuesday.
Though Bieber was born and raised in Canada, he showed up at the Staples Center decked in Lakers gear, including a purple No. 16 hat (representing the team's 16 NBA championship wins) and a yellow No. 24 jersey (for the team's superstar, Kobe Bryant).
Bieber appeared to be treated like nothing less than the international tween icon he's become, scoring facetime with A-listers like David Beckham and Denzel Washington.
And then there were the Lakers Girls.
Yes, the 16-year-old had a prime seat in-between the bevy of beauties, whom he chatted with and posed for pics.
But don't fret that young Bieber wasn't with any peers.
He also had pal Jaden Smith, son of Will and Jada, to keep him company. And, yes, Smith also received some attention from the Lakers' ladies.
In addition to Beckham and Washington, Bieber also chatted up record exec and new "American Idol” consultant Jimmy Iovine, among others.
If all of that's not enough to incite even the tiniest bit of envy, consider this: the singer also had the opportunity to wear head coach Phil Jackson's championship ring.
It's official: the Biebs is cooler than all of us … combined.
