The Nets were founded by famous businessman Arthur Brown in 1967 but their initial name was New York Americans for just sometime then was changed to New York Nets, the team played in the ABA for 10 years and their home grounds were initially the Long Island Arena and then the Island Garden in West Hempstead. In 1976 ABA and NBA merger took place and the team moved to New Jersey and renamed as the New Jersey Nets. For almost 3 decades the Nets played all their home games at the Izod Center but recently they have moved to the very famous Prudential Center.
New Jersey Nets initial ABA years were mediocre as they were novice and undergoing an improvement phase. In 1971-72 they were first noticed as they rose to prominence by winning their first ever ABA semifinals and played their 1st final but lost to the more seasoned Indiana Pacers 4-2. The Nets focused on their hard work and in 1973-74 they made history by standing 1st in the Eastern Division and winning the 1st ABA final beating the Utah Stars 4-1 and they repeated this great performance in 1975-76 by defeating the Denver Nuggets 4-2. For all these seasons Nets legendary player Julius Erving played an important role in the winnings for his team.
1976 was the year when NBA was formed and the Nets were all set to continue with their good form but they failed to make an impression for the first few years. It was in the season of 1981-82 that they drafte star player Buck Williams and things started to improve. The Nets managed to build a tough team with players like Williams, Otis Birdsong and Michael Ray but injuries to the players hampered the Nets success and they lost the 1983-84 Conference semifinals to Milwaukee Bucks 4-2. Things didn’t improve for the next few years as the team kept on struggling with player injuries and continuous coach changes.
New Jersey Nets weren’t able to make an impression despite having some good players and mostly stood at the lowest positions in the Division or barely made to the playoffs but the decade of 2000 was the dawn of a new era for the Nets as they drafted players like Jason Kidd and Richard Jefferson. Kidd went on to be the major force behind winnings of the Nets, in 2001-02 for the 1st time in years the Nets stood 1st in the Division and went on to play their 1st ever NBA final losing to Los Angeles Lakers 4-0. Nets shined again in 2002-03 by topping the Division and playing their 2nd NBA final losing this time to the San Antonio Spurs 4-2. Kidd and Jefferson were joined in 2004 by yet another superstar Vince Carter, together they were a force to reckon with but Kidd underwent knee surgery in 2004 and the Nets weren’t able to repeat this form again despite playing well. They managed to reach the Conference semifinal in 2003-04, 2005-06 and 2006-07.
Kidd and Carter made history in 2007 as they become the 2nd duo ever to record triple doubles in the same game, Carter to date is an NBA 8 times All-Star and Kidd is 10 times NBA ALL-Star. In 2008 both Kidd and Carter departed but the Nets still have some good promising players like Jordan Farmar, Troy Murphy, Brook Lopez and Anthony Morrow.
