A Brief History
One of the most successful teams in the NBA, prior to the merger the Nets, originally known as the New York Americans, featured stars Rick Barry and Julius Erving, and won league titles in 1974 and 1976. Just after winning their 2nd title, the Nets, along with the Denver Nuggets, Indiana Pacers and San Antonio Spurs joined the NBA. While all incoming franchises had to pay the league a fee to join, the Nets were additionally forced to pay the New York Knicks directly for infringing on their territory. In order to come up with the necessary funds, the Nets had to sell Julius Erving, the face of the franchise and one of the best basketball players to ever live, to the Philadelphia 76ers
After years playing in various venues on Long Island and New Jersey, the Nets made the formal move to New Jersey in 1977. Rounding out the 70s and into the 1980s, the Nets were led by the likes of Buck Williams, Otis Birdsong, Michael Ray Richardson and achieved occasional success while watching the Celtics and Lakers win most of the trophies. The 1990s brought memorable stars Derrick Coleman, Kenny Anderson and Hall of Famer Drazen Petrovic but only four trips to the playoffs without any series wins.
With the dawn of the new millennium, the franchise’s fortunes began to change. Acquiring Jason Kidd, Richard Jefferson and Kenyon Martin, the Nets quickly established themselves as one of the dominant teams in the Eastern Conference. With Kidd leading the way, the Nets reached the NBA Finals in 2002 and 2003.
Since purchasing the Nets in 2009, Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov has proven his willingness to do whatever it takes to make the Nets a winner. Trading for Deron Williams in 2011, building a gorgeous new arena in Brooklyn, rebranding the team from the ground up and trading for future Hall of Famers Garnett and Pierce, the Nets have shifted the balance of power in the East.
Just days after announcing his retirement as a player, Jason Kidd was named head coach of the Brooklyn Nets. In 2014, the Nets defeated the Toronto Raptors in Game 7, but only to be defeated themselves in the Semifinals against the Heat. Buckle up, Brooklyn fans – this year is going to be fun.
