Famous Fans: Utah Jazz Edition

Famous Fans: Utah Jazz Edition
Since its basketball season it’s now time for the “Famous Fans Utah Jazz Edition”. The Utah Jazz are not the L.A. Lakers, the New York Knicks or the Chicago Bulls. Jack Nicholsen, Jay Z and Spike Lee do not attend Jazz games regularly. It's pretty slim pickings for celebrities who love the Jazz.

Sisters Kristyn, Kelsi, and Kassidy Osborn of this country music group are from Magna have sung the national anthem at Jazz games early in their careers.

The Osmond Family
Several members of the Osmond family have also sung the national anthem at Jazz games and have been spotted attending various games over the years.

President Thomas S. Monson

President Monson enjoys attending Jazz games when his busy schedule permits but follows the team on TV and in the news paper when he cannot.

There’s even a picture of him and his wife Francis at a Jazz game back in 2008. She sure looks like she is enjoying herself.

Damon Wayans

Despite appearing as Lewis Scott the Utah Jazz’s All-Star shooting guard in the 1996 movie "Celtic Pride", about a couple of Celtic fans who kidnap Scott in order to help the Celtics win the NBA finals, Damon is not a fan of the Utah Jazz, though he is an NBA fan just not of my team.

It’s still cool that they used the Jazz in the movie. I don’t want to spoil anything for anybody out there but the Jazz win the championship in this movie, unlike in real life. I do wish somebody had kidnapped Michael Jordan back in 1997 and 1998.
