The sports-mad singer proves he can shoot hoops with the best of them.

Justin Bieber warmed up for his New York concerts this week (begs02May16) by testing his basketball skills at the Brooklyn Nets practice facility.

The What Do You Mean? singer took his Purpose World Tour to Brooklyn's Barclays Center, the home of the Brooklyn Nets, on Wednesday (04May16) for the first of two concerts at the venue, but before he hit the stage, he stopped by the team's practice court to show off his moves.

The singer, who is known for his love of basketball, shared a photo of himself playing against his manager Scooter Braun on Wednesday, and captioned the image, "I had a blast crossing you up".

On Thursday (05May16), Justin posted video footage of his court session with Scooter, during which he successfully hit a string of three-pointers one after another.

"Let's be honest scooter I was rain dancing all over you nice try tho (sic)," the 22-year-old boasted in the accompanying message.

He also used the opportunity to blast his critics, adding, "and a big f**k you to all the basketball playing trolls online saying i have bad form first of all I'm not a basketball player I'm a singer lol (laugh out loud) second of All I'll work on my form (sic)".

Justin has made his sporting sessions a routine part of his warm up on the road, after also making use of the facilities used by the Atlanta Hawks and the Houston Rockets during his tour stops in the cities last month (Apr16).

The pop superstar will return to the Barclays Centre on Thursday night, before continuing his tour in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Saturday (07May16) and Sunday (08May16).
