It’s one of the most anticipated basketball match-ups of all-time, and it’ll probably be impossible to get a ticket. But if you’re a celebrity fan of the Cleveland Cavaliers or the Golden State Warriors, getting into the Oracle Arena in Oakland on June 19 could be a lot easier. But what celeb fans can we expect to see court side?
OMG! We are just so excited for game 7 of the NBA Finals between Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers, we don’t know how we’re going to sleep before the big tip off on June 19! But we’re not the only ones that’ll be gearing up for the decider between these two fierce rivals. Tons of celeb fans are expected to sit court side for one of the hardest tickets to get in sport to cheer on their favorite team, but who will be there?
Well, there are those Golden State Warriors fans that have been with the team through thick and (mostly) thin over the years. Most of them have never seen success like this before, but they’ve stood behind their team and now they’re seeing the rewards. That’s what being a true fan is!
Jessica Alba has been a very vocal supporter of the Warriors over the years. She’s been spied court side many a time alongside hubby Cash Warren cheering on Stephen Curry and the boys. She always gets really into it, and it’s great to see how invested she is in the team’s fortunes.
The Warriors are also HUGE in the rap game, and have some iconic hip-hop stars often in their crowd. MC Hammer, E-40, Lil B, and Mistah F.A.B can be seen chanting “WAR-RIORS” during home games. It makes for a hell of a raucous and intimidating atmosphere!
We also know that Selena Gomez is a big supporter, jumping to the defense of Ayesha Curry and sharing her tweet after the scandal of game 6 in which so many Warriors fans felt they were hard done by when it came to the refereeing decisions!
As for the Cavs, it’s fair to say that acquiring the services of a certain LeBron James has raised the celebrity profile of the team and drawn celeb fans from all across the US to see them. When Justin Bieber isn’t getting into fights, he’s been seen cheering on Cleveland and partying with their cheerleaders!
Jay Z and Beyonce love going to the basketball, and ever since Jay gave up his part-ownership of the Brooklyn Nets he’s been seen alongside his wife at the Quicken Loans Arena quite a few times. Speaking of ownership, Usher has a stake in the Cavs because he’s one of their super fans too! And if you think about the pull of King James, then obviously Princess Kate Middleton and Prince William made it to a Cleveland game back in 2014!
