Suns point guard Sebastian Telfair took teammate Markieff Morris on a tour of his hometown of Brooklyn on the Suns' off-day Thursday.
He showed him his old Coney Island neighborhood and the downtown area, where he would make the 15-minute trip to go shopping with not a scant dream of another New York NBA team making its home there someday.
Telfair had driven by the uniquely designed Barclays Center in the past, taking in the 80-foot oculus that greets people outside the nearby subway and train stations. But Friday was the first time the Brooklyn native stepped inside the Nets' new home and down to its sunken court with stage lighting.
"This is really, really cool to see this put together right in downtown Brooklyn," Telfair said. "To go from growing up and not having anything down here to seeing this here now, I'm excited.
