Brooklyn Nets Team History

One of the two teams located in New York City, the Brooklyn Nets are still searching for glory since joining the NBA from the former American Basketball Association. The Nets were founded in 1967 as a charter franchise of the ABA and originally called the New Jersey Americans in the first season. The team would relocate to Long Island after their inaugural season and become the New York Nets. In 1976, the Nets joined the San Antonio Spurs, the Indiana Pacers and the Denver Nuggets as the newest members of the National Basketball Association. A year later, the team would leave Long Island to return to New Jersey as the New Jersey Nets, where they would stay until 2012 when they would move into the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn as the Brooklyn Nets.

Brooklyn Nets Championships

The Nets have not won an NBA championship but won two ABA championships in 1974 (4-1 series win over the Utah Stars) and 1976 (4-2 series win over the Denver Nuggets). Since joining the NBA, the Nets have come close twice, winning the Eastern Conference in both 2002 and 2003. The New Jersey Nets made their first NBA Finals appearance in 2002 when they were swept by the Western Conference champion Los Angeles Lakers. The Nets would return to the Finals a year later but would fall short yet again, this time falling to the San Antonio Spurs in six games.

Brooklyn Nets Famous Players and Hall of Famers

One of the leaders of the two Finals teams was point guard Jason Kidd, a 10-time NBA All-Star, nine-time All-NBA Defensive First Team selection, and five-time All-NBA First Team member. Kidd starred for the Nets from 2001 to 2008 with his arrival turning New Jersey from an Eastern Conference cellar-dweller into a perennial playoff contender. Known as a selfless player that helped improve his teammates, Kidd ranks second in NBA history in career assists and steals and ranks ninth in three-point baskets made. While Kidd was unable to lead the Nets a championship, he would later return to the Dallas Mavericks and play a vital role in their championship run in 2011. Kidd would then return and briefly coach the Nets after his retirement as a player.

Julius Erving may have spent the bulk of his career with the Philadelphia 76ers, but the high-flying player known better as Dr. J helped legitimize the ABA during his time with the Nets. While with the New York Nets, Erving helped lead the team to its first ABA championship in 1974 and then once again supported the Nets win the title in 1976 in the final year of the ABA, earning playoff MVP honors. Erving would finish his career with averages of 24.2 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 4.2 assists per game.

He may not be in the Hall of Fame, but Buck Williams established himself as one of the top Nets during the 1980s. Williams is the current franchise leader in rebounds with 7,576 (Billy Paultz is a distant second with 4,544) and minutes played (23,100). Williams is also second in franchise history in regular-season points scored (10,440) and third in blocked shots (696).
