Miami Heat Fan Justin Bieber at Courtside



Apparently Justin Drew Bieber, a Canadian pop musician, actor, and singer-songwriter is a fan of the Miami Heat but not photographers. When I got up to photograph the teen idol during a time out in the basketball game, he covered his face.

It’s a bit odd to me. He is sitting at courtside in front of thousands watching the NBA Eastern Conference Finals between the Miami Heat and the Indiana Pacers at the AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami. 

Photographers from across the court can easily photograph him from their floor positions. Fans are frantically scrambling to shoot him with their smart phones and Heat TV plasters his face all over the jumbo screen hanging over mid court.

Now there are reports that Bieber's bodyguards are accused of roughing up a photographer who was taking photos of Bieber skateboarding at a North Miami recording studio.

Thursday night is Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the defending champion Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs. Watch for my galleries, tweets and more Bieber sightings from both cities during the next two weeks.
