The Nets are an NBA team based out of Brooklyn, New York, and are part of the league’s Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference. Their home arena is the Barclays Center.

Brooklyn Nets Brief History

The team was born back in 1967 as part of the ABA, the NBA’s rival league.

They started playing as the New Jersey Americans in 1967, but the following year, their name was switched to the New York Nets, as they were based out of

Long Island.

Then, back in 1976, the franchise was adopted by the NBA, along with three other ABA teams, including the Spurs, the Pacers, and the Nuggets.

The following year, the team returned to New Jersey, and in 2012, they moved permanently to Brooklyn, acquiring their current, geographic name.

Brooklyn Nets Rivalries

The Nets hold rivalries with 3 NBA franchises: The Celtics, the Knicks, and the Raptors.

Boston Celtics

This rivalry began during the early 2000s, with location and current team stars being the two main reasons.

At the time, the Nets were led by Jason Kidd and Kenyon Martin, while Boston was becoming a successful team once again thanks to players such as Paul Pierce and Antoine Walker.

The rivalry heats up during the 2002 Eastern Conference Finals, which included a lot of trash talking from Boston players towards Kenyon Martin, and Kidd, the latter whom they refer to as “wife beater” due to Kidd’s 2001 domestic abuse charges.

The rivalry was rekindled in 2012, due to an altercation that led to the ejection of Rajon Rondo, Gerald Wallace, and Kris Humphries from the court. Later on, the rivalry cooled off, after Pierce, along with Kevin Garnett, were traded to the Nets.

New York Knicks

This is a geographical rivalry!

It all started back in 1976 when the Nets became part of the ABA-NBA merger, and at the time the rivalry was known as the Turnpike Classic.

And then, when the team moved to Brooklyn back in 2012, this because of a direct intra-city series, known now as the Battle of the Boroughs.

Toronto Raptors

This rivalry began in 2004 when Vince Carter got traded from Toronto to the Nets.

With that said, both franchises didn’t meet at the playoffs until 2007, a time when the Nets managed to take the Raptors down in the first round series by 4 games to 2.

And then, seven years later, the two teams faced each other again in the first round of the playoffs, in a series that lasted seven games, with the Nets winning the last of those matches by just a single point.
