Looking down the Dallas Maverick bench last night in Detroit, you saw the usual. There's Brendan Haywood, there's new guy Yi Jianlian, there's Shawn Marion, there's Delonte West, there's bearded guy with a beanie, there's jean jacket guy with sunglasses, there's Vince Carter -- wait, what?

One thing's for sure: If that's actually Jason Kidd and Rodrigue Beaubois, then they're in major violation of the NBA's dress code.

I'm sure there was an explanation for the two fans that wound up on the Dallas bench last night, but by all apperances, it seems that it was two overzealous seat poachers. Instead of playing it cool and just moving to the lower level, these guys went all the way to the opposing bench. I mean, how far do you go with this? During timeouts do you get up and listen in on what Rick Carlisle is saying? Do you go to the locker room with the team at halftime? Do you get up and high five guys after a big run? Do you wave a towel after a big 3 from Dirk?

Really, what was going on out there?

That was not the Dallas bench.  Reseach goes a long way in reporting.  Carter said those were their seats.

They drinking fans asked or Vince himself probably asked to swap seats for a bit to sit right next to Delonte. Would be pretty cool - even for a few minutes.

For the record they are not on the bench. Detroit, and I’m assuming other teams, have VIP seats that are right next to the bench. The two men in question were sitting in the VIP section, which is courtside. It’s actually Vince Carter that’s not sitting in the proper location…
