Bounce, swish – click? The sound of a camera shutter may become familiar if you go to a Brooklyn Nets game, where celebrity Nets fans line the stands and court side seats. The famous faces of these celebrity Brooklyn Nets fans are probably familiar to you, whether you're a music buff or a cinephile. 

Who is the most famous Brooklyn fan? It's no surprise that the top spot on this list goes to Beyonce, as her husband Jay-Z was previously an owner of the Brooklyn team. Although the “99 Problems” rapper sold his stake in 2013, he remains one of the many celebrities at Nets games. He announced that he was selling with a statement on his website, which read, “It was a tough decision but as I stated earlier, it's not about ownership. Congratulations to The Nets on a great season and making the playoffs! I will always be a Brooklyn Net.”

Longtime New Yorker Chris Rock also numbers among famous Net fans, and Sir Paul McCartney and David Beckham have been spotted with fellow celebrities at Nets games. Even Spike Lee has watched a game at Barclays Center, although he is a lifelong New York Knicks fan. But besides these celebrities, Net fans include athletes, politicians, and even a well-known fashion designer.
