The 12 Most Devoted Celebrity NBA Playoff Fans
The NBA is known for its celebrity fans almost as much as their superstar basketball players. The NBA Playoffs are in full swing, so let’s take a look at some die-hard celebrity NBA Playoffs fans that you can expect to see screaming court-side during this year’s NBA Playoffs.
Donnie Wahlberg goes to every Boston Celtics game, even when the team is playing on the road.
Los Angeles Lakers
Jack Nicholson is more associated with the L.A. Lakers than most of the team’s players are.
New York Knicks
Spike Lee, a life-long Knicks fan, attends every single game and somehow manages to dress crazier and crazier every single time.
San Antonio Spurs
Eva Longoria is a life-long Spurs fan. She even married one of the Spurs players, but her true Spurs fandom will be tested now that said player (Tony Parker) cheated on/divorced her.
Yeah, Mark Cuban owns the Mavericks, but he’s also their biggest fan. He’s always making himself known to the referees and the opposing team’s fans, like a true Mavericks Maniac should.
Chris Tucker, an Atlanta native, is seen at even the lowest-attended Hawks games. Yes, he always looks this old nowadays.
Tiger Woods was seen less during his marriage problems, but he’s still got court-side tickets and has been seen frequently at the arena as of late.
Jimmy Buffet is a courtside staple, along with his son. He was even kicked out of a Heat game once for arguing with the refs over a bad call.
Will Smith was (obviously) born and raised in Philadelphia. He also tried to buy the team in 2006, but failed. However, that didn’t put a damper on his 76ers fandom.
Vedder was born in Evanston, Illinois and is a die-hard Chicago sports fan. He’s even befriended many of the city’s premiere athletes, including former Chicago Bull Dennis Rodman.
Jared Fogle (The Subway Guy)
Jared Fogle is an Indy native and life-long Pacers fan. He can be seen regularly sitting courtside during the Pacers season, chowing down on a cold cut combo.
New Orleans Hornets
Everyone knows that Lil Wayne is a NOLA native, so it’s no surprise that he’s a fan of his hometown Hornets. He’s not seen at games as frequently as some of the other people on this list, but he has been known to show up courtside from time to time, both at home and away games.Speak Your MindTell us what you're thinking... and oh, if you want a pic to show with your comment, go get a gravatar!
