All-Star voting ends on Jan. 18, and Chris Paul is bringing out the big names in his campaign to be the starting point guard for the Western Conference team.

The Clippers point guard is currently in third place among guards behind Stephen Curry and Russell Westbrook, but he is hoping his friend and pop star Justin Bieber can change that.

Those two tweets on their own would not be enough to cover the gap of over 100,000 votes, but luckily for Paul each retweet also counts in his total tally, meaning he is rapidly gaining ground.

Surprising that did not earn a tweet from Bieber, considering the singer was baptized in the Suns veteran’s bathtub.
