The Brooklyn Nets began playing professional basketball in the 1967-68 season as a part of the ABA. The franchise would play nine seasons in the ABA before making the jump to the NBA after the merger. Led by Julius Erving, the Nets won two championships in the ABA. Upon moving to the NBA the Nets endured four straight losing seasons, but then rattled off a five-year stretch during which they made the playoffs every year. From the mid-1980s through the new millennium the Nets were fairly consistently a bottom feeder in the NBA—making the playoffs just four times and compiling a winning record three times. Fortunes changed for the Nets in the 2001-2002 season, when the team acquired All-Star point guard Jason Kidd. Kidd guided his club to back-to-back Finals appearances, but both times the Nets fell just short of capturing the franchise’s first NBA championship—first to the Los Angeles Lakers, then to the San Antonio Spurs. With the addition of Vince Carter, the Nets made the playoffs the next four seasons, but still couldn’t win a title. In 2012 the Nets moved to Brooklyn, where they are building a roster that should compete in the Eastern Conference. The Nets have retired the numbers of six players in the franchise’s history.

2016 Nets Season Preview

These two franchises continue to be bitter rivals due to their close proximity. The Nets have often times been looked at as the little brother in this matchup. With the Nets moving from New Jersey to Brooklyn, the rivalry will only become more intense between the teams and the fan bases as the franchises fight for bragging rights in New York City.
Nets vs. Celtics
This rivalry has a chance to elevate itself near the top of the NBA after former Celtics stars Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett were traded to the Nets. A matchup that was already very hostile and often times featured physical play after the whistle, it will only be natural for the bitterness between these two teams to reach new heights.
Nets in the NBA Finals, Eastern Conference Championships and NBA Playoffs
The Nets have been in the NBA since 1976 and have won multiple Eastern Conference Championships. Brooklyn has won over three division titles and will only add to that number in the years to come. With the move to Brooklyn, the Nets are hopeful they can regain the consistency that saw them become of the best teams in the East during the mid-2000s.
2015 Brooklyn Nets Season Preview
The Brooklyn Nets failed to live up to their elite hype last season, and come into 2015 with a new look, and new expectations. Deron Williams tenure in Brooklyn is over and the offense will now run through point guard Jarrett Jack. Jack and company will look to rely even heavier on star center Brook Lopez, who the Nets resigned to a new 4 year deal after last season. Joe Johnson will be out to prove that he still deserves his superstar contract, and will be charged with making even more of his own shots with the departure of Williams. It is hard to place the 2015 Brooklyn Nets in the category of the elite teams in the Eastern Conference, but with talent like Lopez, Johnson and Thaddeus Young, the Nets should be in the mix for a lower seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
2014 Brooklyn Nets Season Preview
The Brooklyn Nets moved closer to their goal of an Eastern Conference Championship last season. Although they finished their regular season schedule with 5 more losses than in 2012, the Brooklyn Nets defeated the Toronto Raptors in the first round of the 2013 NBA playoffs. The playoff series victory was the first for the Nets since 2007, and the first since the team moved to Brooklyn. The Brooklyn Nets will enter their 2014-15 NBA schedule with a new head coach in Lionel Hollins, but the core of the Nets team remains the same. Back for 2014 are Deron Williams, Kevin Garnett, Brook Lopez, Andrei Kirilenko, and Joe Johnson. A healthy Brook Lopez should provide a major boost on both ends of the court for Brooklyn and give them one of the toughest defensive front courts in the Eastern Conference. The biggest addition to the 2014 Brooklyn Nets roster is probably Jarrett Jack. Jack will be crucial to adding depth to the Nets backcourt and should see plenty of minutes. Brooklyn should be in the thick of the playoff race again in 2014 and will look to try and make a run at the 2014 NBA Finals.
2013 Brooklyn Nets Season Preview
This is now one of the most fearsome rosters in the NBA with the trade to acquire Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, as well as a separate trade that nabbed Joe Johnson in July. Deron Williams has a lot of pieces around him now, and new head coach Jason Kidd is looking to make a splash in the Eastern Conference right away by toppling the Miami Heat as kings of the East. The Nets also added Jason Terry as a back-up point guard and signed Andrei Kirilenko to a deal after a solid year in Minnesota. The Nets will get their chance straight away, with a season-opener at the Barclays Center against the NBA Champion Miami Heat. Other key home games will be vs. the Lakers on Nov. 27, vs. the Knicks on Dec. 5 and against the Bulls and Derrick Rose on Christmas Day with the whole world watching.
2012 Brooklyn Nets Season Preview
After years of playing in Newark and East Rutherford, the New Jersey Nets settled into their new home in Brooklyn for the 2012-13 season, undergoing one of the most remarkable one-year makeovers in the history of professional sports. The new silver and black Nets play in the ultra new state-of-the-art Barclays Center and have seriously revamped their roster to make a statement in a much bigger media market. While the 2011-12 Nets finished with a 22-44 record, the team suffered from injuries and didn't quite play up to its potential. With a series of new free agent acquisitions and a strong draft, the Nets could become a surprise playoff team in the Eastern Conference. Heading into the offseason, the Nets' biggest priority was re-signing their best player, point guard Deron Williams, and they did just that by signing him to a five-year contract. The team also managed to retain midseason trade acquisition Gerald Wallace and Kris Humphries, both of whom provide a solid presence by the basket. In the draft, the Nets took a series of developmental prospects, but may have found a gem in Tyshawn Taylor, a guard from Kansas who could see playing time behind Williams this fall. Of course, the biggest move of the offseason for the Nets was the trade with the Atlanta Hawks for shooting guard Joe Johnson, who provides an immediate upgrade to the team's scoring attack. Rounding out the rest of the Nets' roster, the team is hoping to see continued improvement from center Brook Lopez, who is only 24 and has averaged 17.4 points per game over his career. If he can overcome his injury for the 2011-12 season, his presence could instantly bolster the Nets' attack on both sides of the floor. But like any team with playoff aspirations, it will come down to the Nets' bench to step up to give their starters a breather. Guards C.J. Watson and MarShon Brooks are players who will need to step up to give the team's big stars a chance to finish in the second half. From top to bottom, the Brooklyn Nets boast a strong roster on paper, but ultimately it will come down to the team's health throughout the season and how quickly Joe Johnson and Deron Williams adjust to one another's style of play. Most importantly, having a true home court advantage in their new home could also pay dividends for the team's chances in the playoffs.
2011 Brooklyn Nets Season Preview
The New Jersey Nets are coming off one of the worst seasons in NBA history. After going just 12-70 last season, New Jersey fans are hoping for a drastic improvement, and with a new owner, new general manager and new facility the franchise is certainly looking to distance itself from the 2009-2010 campaign. Coach Avery Johnson comes in looking to replicate the success he had with the Dallas Mavericks, and the Nets have provided him with a bevy of new talent to address one of their greatest issues from last season - rebounding. They traded for Troy Murphy, and drafted Georgia Tech standout Derrick Favors with the third overall pick to improve their game down low. The Nets also drafted Damion James out of Texas, who should be a reliable scoring option. The Nets also picked up Jordan Farmar, Joe Smith, Travis Outlaw and Anthony Morrow, who have all proven to be solid players. The team is still led by guard Devin Harris who was a lone bright spot on the New Jersey team last year. While they may have improved their lineup significantly, the Nets will likely still miss out on the playoffs, as it is difficult to make that much of a jump in just one offseason.
2010 Brooklyn Nets Season Preview
The New Jersey Nets head into the 2009-2010 NBA season with things looking positive. Head Coach Lawrence Frank has a young, talented roster that looks ready to contend for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. He also has a new boss; Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov become majority owner of New Jersey in the off season. His cash should come in handy for building the Nets new arena in Brooklyn, and hopefully for signing a few more key players to help the Nets. So Nets fans have some good days to look forward to because New Jersey is a team on the rise.
2009 Brooklyn Nets Season Preview
The New Jersey Nets are an NBA basketball team that have established themselves as one of the toughest teams in the Eastern Conference. The Nets are defensive specialists, and have developed a reputation for gritty play. In the 2008-2009 season, there will be much left to see where this team will be at the end of the year. With several trades taking place in the off-season, there will essentially be a new team to look forward to this season. Get ready to catch all the Nets action at the Izod Center this season!
