Tom Cruise and Son Connor Cruise Pictures: Los Angeles Lakers Celebrity Fans Sightings Photos, Pics

Tom Cruise and Connor Cruise Pictures: Tom Cruise (R) and son Connor Cruise attend a game between the New Orleans Hornets and the Los Angeles Lakers at the Staples Center on March 27, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.

Perhaps no other professional sports franchise is as closely associated with its celebrity fans as the Los Angeles Lakers. In addition to No. 1 celebrity fan Jack Nicholson, stars such as Dyan Cannon, Denzel Washington, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ice Cube, Andy Garcia and Penny Marshall have long followed the team.

"In this town there has to be some star attraction," Joe Smith, a record executive and Lakers season ticket holder since the team arrived in L.A. in 1960, previously told the NBA's official website. "It's a city of stars, and the extra added plus is when you see Jack Nicholson at the game. There was one game against the Spurs a couple of years ago, in the playoffs, when there were seven Academy Award winners sitting courtside."
