Drake was front and center at the Toronto Raptors first round playoff series. The popular rapper was sitting right next to the team and often looked like he was part of the coaching staff since he was so close to the action.
But beyond Drake, here are 10 celebrities who frequent courtside seats at NBA games:
You'll find the Seinfeld creator and Curb Your Enthusiasm star courtside at both Lakers and Knicks games.
Diddy is a Lakers fan, but you'll also see him courtside at specials events like All-Star weekend.
Billy Crystal doesn't get the super fan credit he deserves, as he's been sitting courtside at Clippers games since long before the Clippers were cool (aka respectable).
The first couple of rap can often been seen sitting courtside at Brooklyn Nets games. Jay Z no longer owns part of the team, but his love for the Nets is still strong.
You'll most commonly see JT courtside at Lakers games. As for who he'll be sitting with, it just depends on the week.
Jack is by far the most popular courtside NBA celebrity. He's had Lakers season tickets since 1970 and has been sitting front and center for the last 25 years.
Who's that guy always sitting next to Jack at Lakers games? It's Lou Adler, record producer and owner of the Roxy Theatre in West Hollywood.
Nicholson might be the most popular NBA courtside sitter, but Spike Lee has definitely created the most controversy during his time in the front row.
When the Biebs isn't having a spa day or getting hauled downtown, he likes to take in the occasional Heat game. In true Biebs fashion, he of course sits courtside.
The Sandman is just a huge sports fan in general, but you'll most commonly see him at Lakers and Knicks games.
Murray doesn't exactly sit courtside, as he's more of a 'common' fan, but he's arguably the biggest celebrity sports fan. If there's anything Illinois sports-related going on, he's likely to be there.
