A Photo Timeline of Rock Stars Who Have Attended the NBA Finals
Many notable musicians have attended the NBA Finals throughout the years, including several stars from the rock and metal world. Do you know who they all are?
If you're even a casual follower of both basketball and rock, we bet you can guess at least one — Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea, the Lakers fan who's often on their floor for their games. But there are plenty of others. Are you ready to see a photo timeline of some rockin' basketball-loving stars?

The NBA (National Basketball Association) has a long-standing relationship with rock music that spans several decades. But the connection between the NBA and rock music is most often within the context of the in-game entertainment, promotional events and marketing related to the games.
