Although he has gotten in some serious trouble over the past year, everyone's least-favorite Canadian has still managed to show up at a variety of sporting events. OK, so he's just about the most obnoxious, bandwagon fan there is, but that doesn't mean I should totally crap on him, right?

2. Drake (Favorite Team: Toronto Raptors)

Most people know that rapper Drake is from Toronto, so naturally, he is a major fan of his Toronto Raptors. The team actually rewarded their No. 1 fan with a "Drake Night" a few weeks ago, allowing him to announce the team's starting lineup. He has also been front and center during the past few NBA All-Star Games, even being used for a Terrence Ross slam during this year's dunk contest.

3. Kevin Hart (Favorite Team: Numerous teams)

Much like Drake, comedic actor Kevin Hart has been a staple at the NBA's midseason festivities for the past few years. And although Hart may be lacking height, he still goes out on the court to participate in the celebrity basketball game, even taking home the MVP award for the last three years—though he refused to accept it this season. Even when he's not cheering his favorite teams on, Hart is around sports in some way, as he has landed some athlete cameos in his films.

4. Will Smith (Favorite Teams: Philadelphia 76ers)

How passionate is Jimmy Buffett about his Miami Heat? So much so that the usually mellow singer actually got kicked out of a game back in 2001 for yelling at an official.Embodying everything about South Beach, Buffett has loved wearing his Maui Jim button downs and slip-on shoes to Heat games even before the Big Three joined forces and started winning titles.

6. Jessie James (Favorite Team: Denver Broncos)

Thanks to her husband—wide receiver Eric Decker—singer Jessie James has learned to don the navy and orange of the Denver Broncos.And if you're like me, you're probably extremely happy she did, because she's quite the sight, whether she's singing the national anthem or just nervously watching her main man out there on the gridiron.

7. Hugh Grant (Favorite Team: Fulham F.C.)

Most dudes don't have a problem admitting they have a bro crush on Justin Timberlake—and who can blame them? The guy seemingly has it all: a sexy actress wife in Jessica Biel, a career that often gets him mentioned as the modern-day Michael Jackson as well as a job as one of the owners of his hometown Memphis Grizzlies, which allows him to sit courtside at any game he wants to.

11. Rihanna (Favorite Team: Miami Heat)

 Celebrity Sports FansSource: bleacherreport

Rihanna is one of the most gorgeous ladies on the planet, so I don't care that she jumps from team to team seemingly every other week. All that matters to me is that she's in the stands cheering and looking about as sexy as possible. She seems to claim the Miami Heat as her No. 1 club—which brings her down a bit for being such a bandwagoner—but how can anyone argue with the girl straight killin' it in that fire-red lipstick to match the team's colors? Oh, right, they can't.

12. Lil' Wayne ( Favorite Team: Los Angeles Lakers)

Whether it's sitting at a sporting event—typically a L.A. Lakers game—or talking about sports through a blog or as a guest on a TV show, rapper Lil' Wayne has proved to be both passionate and knowledgeable. Sure, Weezy has had a few run-ins with teams and the NBA over some alleged incidents, but that just proves that he's someone who actually cares about sports.
