With his seats being right across the court from the Timberwolves bench, he was able to snap some very up close in game pictures of many prominent players from both teams.

His closest individual photos were of the Clippers, with the best shots being of Blake Griffin (pictured upper right), Caron Butler and DeAndre Jordan (pictured below).

The contributor also captured shots of a group of Timberwolves players, including Ricky Rubio, Derrick Williams and Andrei Kirilenko (pictured below).

From a fan's perspective, there is no viewing option in sports that compares to sitting up close at an NBA game. The greatest athletes in the world competing within inches of your seat. Nothing comes close to that level of access.

Per the very same contributor, here is an additional iFolloSports.com story, from two years ago, featuring a similar look at a Phoenix Suns versus Los Angeles Lakers game, at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The sight of Steve Nash and Kobe Bryant, playing against one another, makes a whole lot more sense, doesn't it?
