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!"

Stan means you look up to that person, you watch them or you truly love their content. It's another word for saying you idolize someone or something. You would say, "I stan _____" instead of I "I love that person"
"We stan legends only" "We stan"

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?

an overobsessed fan to the point of following a star around.

It is formed from the words stalker and fan.

Stalker + fan = stan.

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"

A reference to the Eminem song Stan. The song is about an overly obsessed fan (named Stan) who writes letters to eminem and ends up driving off a bridge with his pregnant wife, because Eminem didn't write him back.

The terms means a very very overzealous and obsessed fan of a celebrity/band/cast of a tvshow or movie.
