For some reason, celebrities seem to love basketball above and beyond other sports. I have a theory on why that might be: Not only is the sport quite popular in both New York and Los Angeles, but the indoor, controlled environment in which the game is played allows celebs to dress up and look good because they know they’ll be photographed. That seems to be especially true of female basketball fans; we’ve noticed that everyone from Cameron Diaz to Kim Kardashian shows up at basketball games dressed to the nines, and more importantly, carrying great bags.
We’ve looked through the courtside seats of some of the country’s biggest NBA teams to find all the amazing handbags that celebs have toted to basketball games, and today, with the start of college basketball’s March Madness and the NBA playoffs on the horizon, seemed like an appropriate time to share our findings. Even if you don’t like the game, it might be worth it to get some Knicks or Lakers tickets just to bag-watch.
