Justin Timberlake is known to be one of the most soulful singers in Hollywood and now, we are learning that the pop star also has skills on the hardwood.

Timberlake shocked fans on Tuesday night when he made a half-court shot while hooping on the Los Angeles Lakers’ home court.

In a video shared on the singer’s Instagram page, the father of one, clad in a black beanie and sweats, can be seen launching a basketball from mid court. Swish! Yep, he did that.

Wait, it gets better. Not only did the star sink one shot — he sank two! “Still got that range… Grizz took the L. All good though… bounce back,” he captioned one video. Jessica Biel’s husband captioned the other, “And just in case y’all thought it was a fluke.”

Timberlake is known to be a major sports fan. During the 2016 Espy Awards, the 35-year-old honored a group of retired athletes, including Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, Olympic Gold medalist Abby Wambach and former Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant.

Timberlake presented all three athletes with the icon award, an achievement that Bryant was incredibly humbled by. “It’s amazing to be standing here,” he said.

“I have a lot of respect for these two. I know the sacrifices that went along with standing here today,” Bryant explained. “We’re up here because we had a dream and let nothing stand in our way…We were never satisfied, never finished, we’ll never be retired.”

Music’s most amazing night went down Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. and we have to say the night was all about the ladies!

That’s right the 45th American Music Awards had some major moments and some major girl power starting with Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

The duo got the show started singing R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, but it was their solo performances that had fans going nuts.

Kelly Clarkson returned to the stage and had everyone on their feet with a medley of her classic tracks and new single “Love So Soft.”

While Pink took her career to new heights leaping off the side of a building while performing her hit single “Beautiful Trauma.”

Christina Aguilera, paid tribute to Whitney Houston with a commemorative performance for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard.

But the #Majah moment of the night had to be Diana Ross. The Motown legend was given the Lifetime Achievement Award, and performed some of her greatest hits before accepting the honor.
