ABOUT

The Brooklyn Nets are an American Basketball team competing in the Eastern Conference Atlantic Division of the NBA. The team was founded in 1967 and play its home games at Barclays Center. They are one of the two teams to be located in New York with the other one being the New York Knicks.


Nets history


Nets were initially playing in New Jersey, moved to New York and moved back to New Jersey and played in New Jersey till 2012. New Jersey Americans was what they were called during their debut season. After moving to Long Island they changed their name to New York Nets. It is during this time that they won two ABA Championships in 1974 and 1976. In 1977, the team returned to New Jersey and were called the New Jersey Nets till 2012. The New Jersey Nets won two consecutive Eastern Conference championships in 2002 and 2003. After moving to Barclays Center in 2012, they were renamed as Brooklyn Nets and advanced to the playoffs in each of the next three seasons and reached the Conference Semifinals in 2013-14.


Nets' rivalry with Boston Celtics in the early 2000s is well documented, with a lot of trash-talking, on field altercations etc. happening every time these two teams met. The rivalry has cooled off since the beginning of 2010.

After relocating to Brooklyn, the Nets had a strong start to the season. They finished the season with a 49-33 record which was the fourth best in the Eastern Conference. They were matched up with the Chicago Bulls and eventually lost the series in seven games.


The very next season saw them go one step further as they reached the Conference semifinals. They traded for Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce as they finished with 44-38 record that campaign. They went on to beat the Toronto Raptors in first round of the playoffs and went up against the defending champions Miami Heat in the semifinals to whom they lost in five games.


After reaching the semifinals of playoffs last season, Nets somehow scraped their way through to the post season in 2015. They faced the Atlanta Hawks in the first round and lost the series in six games. Unfortunately, the Nets would not have another post season appearance till 2019.


Kenny Atkinson was named the head coach replacing Lionel Hollins. After suffering three disappointing seasons, the Nets finished 6th in the division with a 42-40 record and lost to the Philadelphia 76ers in the first round of the playoffs. It was a good season considering the roster they had. The addition of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving during the summer break makes the Nets genuine title contenders for the upcoming campaign.
