Courtside Celebrities: Famously Loyal NBA Fans
It’s no secret that celebrities are just like internet writers: Beautiful, debonair, flush with cash, and fans of sports. It can sometimes be difficult to tell the difference between the two groups when watching an NFL game as they pan across the arena. Luckily, we’re here to help you spot a few of the highest profile fans among the courtside faithful.
Spike Lee @ New York Knicks
No list of famous faces at a basketball game would be complete without including none other than writer, producer, actor and diehard Knicks fan Spike Lee, whose face is so often seen and opinion is so often given when it comes to his favorite team.
Jack Nicholson @ Los Angeles Lakers
Jack Nicholson is America’s favorite crazy uncle, and he has a long history of showing up at Lakers games in various states of dress — or undress. Remember that time his belly was hanging out of his unbuttoned shirt?
James Franco, Dave Franco & Alison Brie @ Los Angeles Clippers
The Franco brothers and Alison Brie have been known to pop up at the other LA team, sporting smiles and poking fun at one another.
Kendall Jenner @ Los Angeles Lakers
We can’t have a list about celebrities without mentioning the most famous family in Hollywood. Kendall Jenner has been seen at games with her sisters, and other celebrities like Hailey Baldwin and Bella Hadid.
Billy Crystal @ Los Angeles Clippers
Funnyman Billy Crystal can often be seen joking around with other fans and players during and after games, being in attendance more often than not it seems.
Drake @ Toronto Raptors
Drake not only interacts with fans and players, but he recently took over the broadcast booth at a Toronto Raptors game. Thankfully, he didn’t do his infamous “Hotline Bling” dance.
Jay-Z & Beyonce @ Brooklyn Nets
To be fair, dude used to be an owner of the team, but even after selling his shares he has proven to be among the faithful. Too bad Queen Bey is a Houston Rockets fan.
Will Smith @ Philadelphia 76ers
His days of shooting some b-ball outside of the school may be over, but was there any doubt that this west Philadelphia native would be a Sixer fan?
