Justin Bieber wouldn't stand a chance on the court against the likes of New Orleans Hornets guard Chris Paul and Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard.

But the teen pop music star is challenging those NBA stars in an online popularity contest to decide who should be inducted into the International Bowling Museum & Hall of Fame celebrity wing.

Other candidates who were chosen for their work in furthering the exposure of bowling are Bill Murray, for his role in bowling movie "Kingpin," and Oscar winner Jeff Bridges, for his portrayal of bowling-loving The Dude in "The Big Lebowski."

For Paul, the all-star point guard is an avid bowler who has served as an advocate and youth ambassador for the United States Bowling Congress. Paul, who dubs bowling his "second favorite sport", regularly runs a celebrity pro-am bowling tournament on the PBA tour that pairs celebrities with pro bowlers.

And Howard frequently hosts charity bowling tournaments in Orlando and has been honored in the pages of U.S. Bowler Magazine for his support of the sport.

And Bieber? The teenage heart throb's music video for his recent single "Baby" was set in a bowling alley, as well as his "My World 2.0" album release party.

You can vote for your choice at gobowling.com until Aug. 7.
