Several members of the Kardashian extended family showed out to support the purple and gold.
On May 11, the Lakers were finally able to prove a psychic Corgi and Stephen A. Smith wrong as they beat the Warriors 122-101. LeBron had a dominant 30-point game, nearly hitting a triple-double with nine assists and nine rebounds. Fan-favorite Austin Reaves put 23 points. After the game, the Warriors conceded that they were not a “championship team” this season. The Lakers will play the Denver Nuggets in the next round.
Now the Kardashian-Jenner dynasty has a long history of dating NBA players. While most of the athletes linked to the family are former flames of Khloé, Kim and Kendall have also had their basketball romances. Kim briefly dated Kris Humphries, who retired in 2017. Meanwhile, Kendall has had romances with Suns star Devon Booker and current Celtic Blake Griffin.

Kim was courtside was the Lakers’ Game 6 win. Earlier in the series, she had been spotted showing off her curves in a tight-fitting “I Love Nerds” top. That appearance fueled speculation that Kim was dating a Laker, a claim she denied. For Game 6, she was in attendance with her daughter, North.
Together they held up a homemade sign that read “Tristan Thompson” in alternating purple and gold letters. Thompson, Kim’s former brother-in-law, played four minutes off the bench, pulling down two rebounds. It remains to be seen if Kim will continue attending Lakers home games as they take on the Nuggets for a place in the NBA Finals.
Elsewhere in the crowd, fans spotted Kendall Jenner and Bad Bunny. The pair have been publicly dating since February 2023. At one point, the broadcast appeared to catch Benito asking Jenner if she wanted to go home after the game, with Jenner appearing to reply “we can do whatever”.
The Lakers and Warriors were the only elite athletes in the building. Benito recently came out on top in a WWE street fight match against fellow Puerto Rican wrestler, Damian Priest. Who was your favorite celebrity appearance during the NBA playoffs? Let us know in the comments below.
