Video: The View From Center Court

We took a tour of the Barclays Center construction site Friday, following in the dusty footsteps of Kris Humphries, Deron Williams, Brook Lopez, Billy King and Bobby Marks. The one overwhelming impression we got was not of the enormity of the structure going up in the shadow of Manhattan, but how close fans will be to the action.  It's a basketball-centric design, more so than most arenas.

Here's short video we shot from center court, panning from the far end of the court to the other.  As the video passes by mid point, just behind the crane and under the high point of the arched roof truss is Mikhail Prokhorov's 'Super Suite". Note as well the precast concrete sections already in place. Enjoy.
