This list of celebrity Knicks fans is loosely ranked by fame and popularity. The New York Knicks basketball team has a lot of famous fans. Some celebs are so dedicated to the NBA team that they buy season tickets, while others stop by for one game a season. Madison Square Garden, the building the Knicks call home, is a great place to see some exciting basketball and spot your favorite celebs.

Who is the most famous Knicks fan? Spike Lee tops our list. The Do the Right Thing director has been seen courtside for years. He frequently dresses up in Knicks' orange and blue as he enjoys that game and lets the refs know what he thinks. Annie Hall director Woody Allen is also a huge Knicks fan. Reportedly, Allen was recently banned from the MSG VIP Lounge. Apparently, the MSG television network wanted Allen to do some promos and he declined, propelling them to deny him access.

Have you spotted other celebrities at Knicks games? Several famous comedians are big New York Knicks fans. New Yorkers Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock both enjoy taking in a game, as do Jon Stewart, Howard Stern, and Ben Stiller. Some famous women who are Knicks fans include Alicia Keys, Katie Holmes, and Olivia Wilde. They probably even check the New York Knicks wiki as much as you do!
