Celebrities Sure Do Love The Lakers: A Guide To The NBA’s Famous Fanfare

Last week, the Hollywood Reporter posted an in-depth breakdown of Los Angeles Lakers celebrity fans and where they sit at games. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist or a blogger who uses MS Paint to draw body fluids on faces to know that a lot of famous people attend Lakers games. From Jack Nicholson and that guy who looks like Donald Sutherland but is really the dad of Cisco Adler to David Arquette’s crazy ass and Khloe Kardashian’s custom park bench, Lakers games are a veritable Who’s Who of Hey Look, Those Guys Pretend To Like Basketball.
So that got me thinking, “Hey Burnsy, you’re ridiculously intelligent, who are some of the famous fans of the other 29 teams in the NBA and where do they sit at their respective teams’ games?” And so I had sex with a few Victoria’s Secret models and then I got started on this incredibly detailed list and graphics to back it all up. And yes, it’s in slideshow format, because Adriana Lima told me she would leave Marko Jaric for me if I made a slideshow… DEAL. WITH. IT.
