As voting continues for this year's NBA All-Star game, one particular Toronto Raptors star has gained the backing of a big name music star.
With players like John Wall and Dwyane Wade leading the voting, music star Justin Bieber has made a plea for a certain Raptors player.
The Raptors are having a great season as they have continued to rise, and Canada's sole NBA representative have got a big name star supporting them.
Bieber may not be well loved amongst the sporting community, but his 60 million Twitter followers could be set to vote for one star.
Bieber - a Canadian himself has called upon his Twitter followers to take to the internet and put all their weight behind Kyle Lowry.
- Kobe Bryant admits to potential retirement
- 2015 NBA All-Star predictions see surprises in team line ups
- Atlanta Hawks continue to run riot on the road with Raptors latest victims
Lowry is third in the voting right now and he will no doubt be hoping that his celebrity fan can bring him in some more votes.
"Toronto has been killin it and @Klow7 deserves to be an nba all star. Make sure to vote for him. #WeTheNorth. Good luck buddy." - Justin Bieber's tweet to support Kyle Lowry
The starters in the annual all-star game are chosen by fan votes so a voting community of 60 million could see Lowry rise.
Lowry would deservedly be in the back-court of the Eastern conference team it will be interesting to see if Bieber can give him the votes he needs.
Raptors going well
The Raptors are in the midst of an impressive season having worked their way to a 26-14 record.
Toronto remain as the top team in the Atlantic division and the third seed in the East as their season continues to grow.
It could have been so much better for the Raptors however as despite their good record, they are currently on a two game losing streak and have only won twice in their last nine games.
They face a tough trip to the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night and they will be trying to stop the run that has seen them fall from the number one seed in the East.
