Celebrities, like all of us, are huge sports fans. Actress Ashley Judd has been rooting for her Kentucky Wildcats basketball team since she went to school there in the early '90s. She even travels to Kentucky road games. Spike Lee is always courtside at Knicks' games talkin' trash to opposing players. And who can forget Jack Nicholson, who has been a Lakers' fan since the Magic Johnson days!

We break down which teams the celebs like to root for. They also like teams for different reasons. Some cheer for their home team, some own the team and some are married to someone on the team. We've provided you with a key to the reasons why - (ht)=hometown, (o)=owner, (sp)=spouse, (cc)=current city.
