Based on the central character in the Eminem song of the same name, a "stan" is an overzealous maniacal fan for any celebrity or athlete.
A Typical Kobe Bryant Stan would say something like.
"Kobe Bryant scored 81 points last night. Kobe could beat God himself in a game of 1 on 1 hoops. To hell with Michael Jordan or Wilt Chamberlain, they arent on Kobe's level!"

A song by Eminem off of The Marshall Mathers LP about a man who loves Eminem and his music to the point of insanity. The fan, whose name is Stan, meets Eminem at a show and then begins to write him letters. The letters get progresivly stranger. After a long time with no responce from Eminem, Stan puts his girlfriend in the trunk of his car and drives to a bridge. Stan tells Eminem all about what and why he is doing this from a tape recorder in his car. Stan then drives the car over the bridge, presumably killing himself and his girlfriend who was pregnant with his kid. The song ends with Eminem writing a letter to Stan right after his death. But Eminem then realizes that the man he has heard about on the news who drove his car over a bridge is the guy who has been writing him letters. In other words if Eminem had wrote the letter a week earlier Stan would have remained alive. Famous because it used the baseline and vocals from Dido's famous song "Thank You". Very powerful song.
" Have you heard in the news they're blaming some crazy guy killing someone because he listened to and was influenced by that song Stan?

"Of course, they always do that"
Dear Stan, I meant to write you sooner but I just been busy...

Stan is a depressing song.

A character from SouthPark. He is usually the rational one. Whenever Kenny dies (which is every episode), he says:

Stan: Oh my god, they killed Kenny!
Kyle: You Bastards!!
Let's watch South Park, it's the one where Stan, Kyle, and Cartman try to build a ladder to heaven.

Reference to one of the best songs ever by Eminem called "Stan" about an Obsessed fan who ends up killing himself and his wife over Eminem not writing him back.

Basically it describes someone who is all up on their favorite artist's schlong, and can't take criticism or the slightest negative about said artist. But instead of "fans", they're called "Stans", get it?

Stan as many people know is a character in Eminem's popular song Stan. Because the character was so obsessive the name can be used as an adjective. You could call somebody a "stan" if you think they are obsessive of someone or something. One good exampe would be in the song Ether by Nas.
You a fan, a phony, a fake, a pussy, a Stan - Nas
