VIDEO: Ricky Rubio Wears A Justin Bieber Backpack

There weren't a lot of exciting NBA rumors that happened during NBA All-Star weekend because most people were probably too excited about Minnesota Timberwolves big man Kevin Love winning the three-point contest. The NBA posted something on their Youtube channel to set the internet ablaze, however.

Love mentioned at the outset of All-Star weekend, during an interview with ESPN's Bill Simmons, that he has the rookies wearing funny backpacks as part of the hazing process -- a trick he apparently picked up from veteran center Brad Miller. The video sleuths went to work and confirmed that this weeekend, too, catching Ricky Rubio wearing a Justin Bieber backpack as he stepped off the All-Star bus.

It's fun to see the screencap of the video just being Blake Griffin making that "are you guys seriously recording this?" face while the cameraman goes into Blair Witch mode while following Rubio wearing a Biebs backpack. It had to happen, though, right?
