Celebrity Lakers Fans

Updated April 3, 2020 311.9k views74 items

Go team! This is a list of celebrity Lakers fans, ranked by fame and popularity. The Los Angeles Lakers 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—perhaps to catch a glimpse of the Lakers girls as well.. The Staples Center, the building the Lakers call home, is a great place to see some exciting basketball and spot your favorite celebs.

Who is the most famous Lakers fan? Jack Nicholson tops our list. The As Good As It Gets actor has been spotted court-side for 30 years. Nicholson is a true Lakers fan. He has supported the team through ups and downs from the time they played at the Forum through their successes at the Staples Center. Nicholson gets so involved in Lakers' games that he can be seen yelling at refs and chatting with the players. Other actors who are big time Lakers fans include Leonardo DiCaprio, Denzel Washington and Andy Garcia. Some famous women are also big fans of the Los Angeles Lakers.

Actress/director Penny Marshall has been following the Lakers for decades. She frequently wears Lakers' gear and sometimes she even flies across the country to cheer on the team. Other famous women who are Lakers fans include Vanessa Hudgens, Ellen Pompeo and Eliza Dushku. Other celebrities at Lakers games are probably just there for the publicity (ahem, Justin Bieber...). But for the true famous Laker fans, their devotion to the team is clear.

Do you think these celebs are die-hard supporters or fair-weather fans?
