Jimmy Buffett: Miami Heat Sixth Man

Just about every team in the NBA has a famous fan or two. Knowing where to look is easy; they’re celebrities, after all -- only courtside seating will do. The trick is knowing whom to look for.

Courtside trademark: His carrottopped son, Cameron

Loyalty rating: 10

Notes: On February 4, 2001, Buffett was ejected from his courtside seat at a Heat game against the Knicks for swearing at referee Joe Forte. In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Buffett said, “It was a bad call. It still is a rotten call! John Starks clobbered Tim Hardaway. It was a close game. I just said, ‘You stupid [redacted 12-letter curse word], that is the worst call I ever heard.’ “
