Justin Bieber Plays Ball In NBA 2k13 Videogame

Pop star appears as celebrity player in Jay-Z's game - and he's grown...

Justin Bieber fans who play new basketball videogame NBA 2K13 will get to see their idol as they've never seen him before - about 6ft 5in tall and built like a brick outhouse.

The pop star features in a Celebrity All-Stars team in the game, which was executive produced by none other than Jay-Z.

And Biebs - a keen baller in real life - was clearly delighted with his virtual on-court debut, tweeting: "Shoutout to @Ronnie2K for putting #TeamBieber in #NBA2K13 . I'm running the pt. #SWAGGY"

Other members of the celeb team include JB Smoove, Wale, Bow Wow, Chamillionaire, Sean Kingston, Meek Mill, Vinny Guadagnino and Pauly D from Jersey Shore.

Released this week in the US, the game has received a positive reception - although a European release date is still to be confirmed.

It will be available for Xbox 360, PS3, PlayStation Vita, Wii and PC.
