A gaggle of preteen girls hovered outside the Verizon Center early Monday afternoon as the Washington Wizards held practice, but they weren't there for anything basketball-related.
No, they were there for something else. Or, more appropriately, someone else.

Yes, the Biebs was in town last night on yet another stop on his "Believe" tour, but before single-handedly spreading an epidemic of Bieber Fever among girls in the area, Bieber poked his head into the Wizards' practice.
During his press conference, head coach Randy Wittman was asked if he had come down with Bieber Fever, which he didnt even dignify with a response.
To his credit, Bieber has some game; he was the MVP of last year's NBA All-Star celebrity game. Somewhere, Jannero Pargo just got nervous. Not really, but can you imagine? I mean, a professional hockey team offered Bieber a contract, so why not the Wizards? Attendance would skyrocket.
Personally, I'm just glad there was finally something Canadian at Verizon Center.
