The New Jersey Nets were an NBA franchise based out of New Jersey from 1977 to 2012. Coming to existence in 1977 after a third move made by the original 1967 New Jersey Americans, who became known as the New York Nets in 1968, the New Jersey Nets were the most successful tenured team in the franchise’s history. Bringing home multiple Conference Championships, the Nets were relocated and renamed in 2012 to become the Brooklyn Nets.
Though they never brought home an NBA Championship to New Jersey, the Nets saw incredible periods of success during their 35 year existence. Led by incredible NBA stars such as Vince Carter, Deron Williams and Derrick Coleman, the New Jersey Nets were always a threat to the opponent on the hardwood court. The culmination of their success, though, came in two consecutive seasons with Conference titles in 2002 and 2003. Fueled by none other than Jason Kidd, the New Jersey Nets became one of the most followed teams in the NBA.
