They won two ABA Championships before joining the NBA in 1976. They would take the New Jersey Nets mantle in 1977. In the NBA, their greatest success came in the 2001-2002 and 2002-2003 seasons, where superstar Jason Kidd led the team to the NBA Finals in back-to-back years. Other notable players to have played with the Nets include Julius Erving, Drazen Petrovic, Rick Barry, Nate Archibald, Buck Williams, Wendell Ladner, John Williamson and Bill Melchionni.
