NBA players marvel at Barclays Center elevator

"Amazing," "kind of trippy," and "007 stuff" are just a few of the superlatives being tossed around by NBA players after they play the Brooklyn Nets in Barclays Center.

And no, they're not talking about Brook Lopez's resurgence, Kris Humphries' marriage to Kim Kardashian or owner Mikhail Prokhorov's lifestyle. They are talking about the elevator ride that takes their team bus from street level to the locker room level before games.

This Bleacher Report video shows the 27-foot descent that is more Universal Studios theme park than team bus parking lot.

The ingenious solution to cramped Brooklyn real estate and old fashioned bus ramps was devised by Forest City Ratner Companies.

Players like Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, Joakim Noah and Antawn Jamison have all been awed after they experience being spun on the giant turntable.

Cost of each 81-foot long elevator: $1 million.  Cost of NBA players wowed expressions: Priceless.

Does Port Authority know about this thing?
