Fans Seen On Mavericks Bench: Two Men Sit Next To Vince Carter, Other Dallas Players (VIDEO)

Talk about good seats.

Some fans were spotted sitting among the world champion Dallas Mavericks during the third quarter of Tuesday night's game against the Pistons in Detroit. The fans, seated between Mavericks players Delonte West and Vince Carter, appeared to be perfectly comfortable taking the game in from an untraditional perch, and it seemed like the Dallas players hardly noticed. And yes, the one on the left is wearing sunglasses indoors... at night.

According to Larry Brown Sports (Via SLAM Online), the two fans were Aaron Cohen and a man who goes by Chris Smokes on Twitter. It turns out they had amazing VIP seats -- available for purchase for the bargain price of $750 -- that happened to be next to the Mavericks bench, but they decided to get a little closer to the players.

While the scene was certainly bizarre, it was most definitely not as unfortunate as the last time fans decided to get a little too close to the action during a Detroit Pistons game.
