Love 'em or hate 'em, the Miami Heat know how to draw a star-studded crowd.
With LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh schooling the NBA just a hop, skip, and a jump from glamorous South Beach, the Heat's home court is clearly the place to be seen. Whether it's Bill Clinton sitting with owner Micky Arison (and receiving his own jersey) or Rick Ross, Gloria Estefan, Drake, or Jimmy Buffett watching courtside, Heat fans are practically guaranteed a star spotting at every game. We've even spotted globe-trotting DJ Diplo in the lower level on the same night Jerry Seinfeld enjoyed the view from Row 1.
The only celeb you won't spot in a courtside seat? The Heat's own first lady Gabrielle Union, who's been banished to the stands by her boyfriend thanks to some over-the-top heckling.
Check out the stars we spotted in the stands at AmericanAirlines:
