Jimmy Goldstein (find him on Instagram!) is a millionaire “NBA Super Fan” who attends over one hundred NBA games each season typically in courtside seats, including approximately 95 percent of home games for the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers. He also travels from city to city to catch games, especially during the NBA Playoffs.
His unique and flamboyant clothing makes him fairly easy to spot on television. His passion for the NBA has been featured in USA Today and the Wall Street Journal.
His house, also known as Sheats-Goldstein Residence, has been featured in several media articles, including the Robb Report, Town & Country, Architectural Digest, and the New York Times Magazine. The house was designed by John Lautner, a student/disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright, in 1963.
Goldstein purchased the property in the 1970s from previous owners who did not keep the house in good condition. Goldstein commissioned Lautner to make changes and improvements to the house. Below the main residence is an installation by light artist James Turrell known as “Skyspace”.
