Bieber -- who was deemed MVP of the All-Star game in 2011 -- will be on Team Lakers, with ESPN's Rachel Nichols and former NBA pro Tracy McGrady coaching. As for his famous teammates, the 23-year-old pop star will be playing alongside Black Panther actor Michael B. Jordan -- who is also coaching -- and Property Brothers star Drew Scott.

Team Lakers will be going up against rapper Common, Arcade Fire frontman Winn Butler and actor-singer Jamie Foxx, who are on Team Clippers. ESPN's Katie Nolan and former NBA pro Paul Pierce will be coaching.

Fans can catch Bieber ballin' on Friday at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN.

It's not yet confirmed if Selena Gomez will be cheering on her on-again, off-again boyfriend from the sidelines, but she has attended several of his hockey games. 

In November, the 25-year-old "Wolves" singer even got a kiss from Bieber while he was still on the ice. Check it out:
