Enes Kanter gets stuck in elevator with new Trail Blazers teammates

On Tuesday, the Blazers got a little more team bonding time than they would have preferred at the hotel they were staying at when about half the team found themselves trapped in an elevator for over half an hour.

The Portland Trail Blazers, in Boston for Wednesday night's game against the Celtics, were stuck in an elevator for about 30 minutes at a practice facility at Emerson College.

The footage Turner shot shows rookie Gary Trent Jr. clinging to his veteran teammate for emotional support while a rescue crew tries to lift the elevator.

IVANKA TO CORTEZ: The American People Don't Want 'Guaranteed Minimums'
Raising the minimum wage has been hotly debated around the country for years. In the interview, she went on to say America is "doing very well".

Damian Lillard seems to have spent most of the ordeal crouched on the floor in the middle of the elevator. "The College apologizes for the disruption and hopes the team takes it easy on the Boston Celtics tomorrow night". Evan Turner wasn't too happy about the incident either, saying in one of the videos that Leonard posted, "This is not how you treat a former No. 1 team in the West".

Luckily for us, center Enes Kanter captured chunks of the "traumatic" experience on video.

Extended road trips pose a whole host of issues for National Basketball Association teams, especially a team like the Trail Blazers that travels more miles per season than any other team in any of the four major American sports leagues.
