Diplo performs onstage at Rose Bowl on Feb. 21, 2015 in Pasadena, California.

He shoots, he...misses. Diplo might be undersized for the game of basketball, but the DJ and producer isn't short of confidence. The EDM star showed off his ball skills when he caught up with Arcade Fire’s Win Butler for a pick-up game backstage at the Hangout Music Festival on the weekend .

Footage shows Diplo playing “skins” and calling his own isolation play. He makes a nice spin to the hoop, and throws up a brick. Butler, who at 6’4” is the tallest guy on court, has some basketball chops; he played in the 2015 NBA All-Star Celebrity game. Diplo got a taste of the hardwood when his act Jack U performed at halftime in an L.A. Clippers game. Watch the 2-on-2 clip below.
