The Nets franchise began in 1967 as the New Jersey Americans, one of the charter franchises of the old American Basketball Association (ABA). They became the New York Nets in 1968 and merged into the NBA in 1976.
The following season, the franchise moved back to New Jersey where they remained for 35 years from 1977 to 2012. In 2012, the team moved to Brooklyn to become the present-day Nets. The franchise enjoyed its “glory years” in the 1970s while in the ABA where it won two championships.
Fans can watch the Nets in nationally televised games on TNT, ESPN, ESPN+, and ABC. The Nets complete schedule is also available for live streaming via the YES Network. Games are also broadcast on the YES Network, the most-watched regional sports network in the nation.
HOME OF THE NETS
Unlike many other NBA franchises, the Nets have had several home arenas over the past 50-plus years. With the moves back and forth from New York to New Jersey and back again, the Nets have called eight different arenas home.
When the franchise moved back to New York in Brooklyn, the Nets moved into their current home, the Barclays Center. The arena seats 17,732 fans for Nets’ home games.
The Nets enjoyed success early while in the ABA where they played in three ABA Finals and won two of them. With the move to the NBA in 1977, the Nets made the NBA playoffs but had trouble getting past the first series.
Brooklyn, which now plays in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference, has won five total division titles. Four were won in the NBA and one in the ABA. The Nets have made the NBA playoffs 27 times in team history.
The Nets have won five conference titles. The most recent were in 2002 and 2003 in the NBA. The other three were in the ABA (1972, 1974, and 1976). The ’74 and ’76 teams won ABA championships.
BEST OF THE NETS
Any talk of the Nets has to start with Julius “Dr. J” Erving, one of the game’s all-time great players. Erving only played four seasons for the Nets, but he is still seventh on the all-time scoring list. He helped the Nets win two ABA titles and Erving won three straight ABA MVP awards and was the playoff MVP in ’74 and ’76 when the Nets won championships. Erving would go onto play the bulk of his career in Philadelphia where he was an 11-time NBA All-Star. He ended his career with averages of 24.2 points and 8.5 rebounds per game. Erving was inducted into the College Basketball and Basketball Halls of Fame.
Buck Williams played 17 years in the NBA, the first nine with the Nets. He was the No. 3 overall pick in the NBA draft in 1981 and would win the league’s Rookie of the Year award after averaging 15.5 points and 12.3 rebounds per game. Williams is still the Nets franchise leader in rebounds, minutes played and games played (635). Williams was a three-time All-Star, all with the Nets, and made the NBA All-Defensive Team four times (1988, 1990, 1991, and 1992).
