Staples Center Security Guards Intercept Fan Trying To Attack Mavs’ Bench (Videos)

With all the celebrities we often see sitting courtside at the Staples Center during Lakers games, you would think that they would have some of the finest security guards working at their games.  Well last night those security guards were put to the test, and they passed with flying colors.

Just when things appeared to have settled down following a scuffle between players from the Lakers and the Mavericks, a fan attempted to make his way onto the court as Lamar Odom was shooting free throws.  He had almost made it to the bottom of the steps in the lower level when he was intercepted by one of the red-coated security guards.  Several more came to help just seconds later, as the fan was escorted out of the arena.

Here is a look at the incident from two different angles.  Where were these guys during the World Cup?
