The Brooklyn Nets are one of five teams in the Atlantic Division of the NBA’s Eastern Conference along with the Boston Celtics, New York Knicks, Philadelphia 76ers and Toronto Raptors. The franchise was founded in 1967 as a charter franchise of the NBA's rival league, the American Basketball Association (ABA). They played in New Jersey as the New Jersey Americans during their first season, before moving to Long Island in 1968 and changing their name to the New York Nets. During this time, the Nets were led by Hall of Famer Julius "Dr. J" Erving to two ABA championships, in 1974 and 1976.
The Nets were one of four ABA teams to be admitted into the NBA as part of the 1976 ABA–NBA merger. Unlike the other three ABA teams that were entering the NBA— the San Antonio Spurs, Indiana Pacers, and Denver Nuggets, all of whom remain in the league today—the Nets were required by the NBA to pay an "encroachment fee" of $4.8 million to the Knicks. The team financed that payment by selling Erving’s contract to the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Nets went from winning the last ABA title in 1975–76 to posting the worst record in the NBA in 1976–77. The team then moved back to New Jersey in 1977 and played as the New Jersey Nets from 1977 to 2012. The high point of their time in that state was two consecutive NBA Finals appearances in the 2001–02 and 2002–03 seasons, led by point guard Jason Kidd. In the summer of 2012, the team moved to Barclays Center, and took its current geographic name.
The Nets’ all-time scoring leader is Brook Lopez, who is also the franchise leader in blocked shots. The franchise leader in rebounds is Buck Williams with 7,576. Jason Kidd holds the Nets’ franchise records for most assists with 4,620 and steals with 950. The 813 three-pointers Kidd made as a Net is a franchise record, as is the 2,377 three-point shots that Kidd attempted as a member of the Nets. Darryl Dawkins is the only player in Nets history to shoot better than 60 percent from the field for his career.
