A couple of fans were sitting courtside during the Mavericks-Pistons game Tuesday at the Palace, drinking beer like they were at a bar. The Detroit announcers were going pretty crazy trying to figure out who these guys were and why they were there. After all, it’s not too often you see fans sitting in the middle of a team’s bench, enjoying cocktails no less.
In this video from Busted Coverage, you can see the two fans are seated between Delonte West and Vince Carter on the Mavs bench:
It turns out the fans in question are Aaron Cohen, a fashion designer who runs a clothing company called Revive, and a guy who goes by Chris Smokes on Twitter. Cohen is from the Michigan area, so we’re guessing the seats came from the Pistons, not Mark Cuban or the Mavericks.
Cohen has also tweeted pictures from courtside seats in the past, but we’re guessing this is the first time he’s sat between players.
Here are a few more pictures he tweeted from the game:
