Brooklyn Nets: News, Schedule, Roster, Score, Injury Report

The Brooklyn Nets are a team based out of New York City that competes in the Atlantic Division as a part of the NBA’s Eastern Conference. Former NBA player Sean Marks currently serves as the general manager of the franchise, while former MSG executive John Abbamondi is the team’s president

The Brooklyn Nets are one of the two NBA teams from New York City, with the other being Knicks. However, both teams enjoy a different venue as the Nets play their home games at the Barclays Center, a multi-purpose arena that also hosts NHL and WNBA games. 

Business tycoon and philanthropist Joseph Tsai owns a majority share of the Nets franchise. The Taiwanese-Hong Kong-Canadian billionaire is also the co-founder and executive vice-chairman of Alibaba group. 

The Nets pulled off a stunning move in 2020 by hiring Hall of Famer Steve Nash as their head coach. Nash replaced his predecessor Kenny Atkinson who was fired after four years at the job, displaying a record of 118-190 (36.3%).  

History

The Nets came into existence in 1967, as a part of the American Basketball Association (ABA). During their initial season in the ABA, the Nets were known as the New Jersey Americans, but immediately relocated and changed their name as the New York Nets in 1968. 

Within a span of few years, the NBA and ABA merger happened and the Nets were one among the four teams that were absorbed by the NBA with the other three being the San Antonio Spurs, Indiana Pacers, and Denver Nuggets

However, before the merger, the Nets managed to win the ABA championship in 1974 and 1976. Moreover, the franchise returned to New Jersey in 1977 and stayed there until 2012. 

The team hardly found success in the league after being absorbed by the NBA. With meager first-round playoff exits in the 80s, the team lost its shine. The same followed in the 90s as well, as the Nets only managed to make four postseason appearances in ten years. 

The subsequent decade began in grand fashion, as the Nets made back to back NBA finals in 2003 and 2003. Powered by the likes of Jason Kidd and defensive stopper Dikembe Mutombo, the Nets showed plenty of promise but ended up losing both finals. 

In 2012, they were once again renamed as the Brooklyn Nets after they began hosting home games at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. During the 2019 offseason, the Nets bolstered their attacking options by signing two superstars in Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. 

Brooklyn Nets mascot and logo

Ever since moving to Brooklyn in 2012, the Nets have had a simple logo. The word ‘Nets’ is written in a bold font and contains a white basketball below, with a big black ‘B’ written on it. It is surrounded by a shield-like design and the logo is finished with ‘Brooklyn’ written beneath. 

The Brooklyn Nets are one among the four teams that don’t have an official mascot. The franchise did have attractive mascots in the past, namely, the ‘BrooklyNight’ and ‘Sly the Silver Fox,’ but unfortunately, all of them have now retired. 

Furthermore, the primary colors of the Brooklyn Nets uniforms are black, white, and dark grey. The Nets also announced exciting news for its fans as the team will now wear a classic 1990-91 throwback uniform for the 2020-21 season. 

Team’s Sponsors

The Brooklyn Nets have partnership ties with a plethora of companies. Moreover, multi-national software company Infor struck a jersey deal with the franchise and the Nets have been sporting jersey patches that endorse the company. 

Besides Infor, the Nets have corporate ties with Coca-Cola, Honda, Nike, and several other companies.
