NBA and NHL players -- in addition to

NBA and NHL players -- in addition to VIPs and tour buses -- arrive for games and practices via truck elevators. Each elevator is 80-feet long and can carry up to 80,000 pounds. That's a lot of basketball players!

Nets players pull their cars up outside the arena, drive in, and then take the elevator down. This is the only building where a professional athlete enters like this, said Barclays Center general manager Steve Rosebrook.

Los Angeles Lakers All-Star Kobe Bryant called the arrival mode "a basketball version of Willy Wonka" on the Bleacher Report in 2013.
