Formed in 1967 as the New Jersey Americans, the New Jersey Nets did not join the NBA till 1976 and they were known as the New York Nets for one year in the NBA until they changed to the New Jersey Nets. The Nets are in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference, where they play at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
The head coach of the Nets is Avery Johnson, who joined the team on June 15, 2010. Before he became the head coach of the Nets, Johnson was the head coach of the Dallas Mavericks, where he lead them to their first NBA championship appearance. Currently, he has the highest winning percentage in the NBA.
The 2010-11 season was not kind to the Nets. They were only able to acquire 24 wins with 58 loses. They were ranked at fourth in the Atlantic Division and twelfth in the Eastern Conference, with no shot at the playoffs.
The home of the Nets is the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. Opened in 2007, it has a seating capacity of 18,711 people and is one of the newest facilities in the NBA. Newark's bricklaying and railroad heritage inspired the exterior of the building to feature red and gray.
The Nets have been able to prove that they are a better team by making it to the NBA championships in 2002 and 2003, but they have been unable to win any. In 2002, they were swept by the Los Angeles Lakers and, in 2003, they lost in Game Six to the San Antonio Spurs.
A great coach will only bring a team so far until the players need to decide to join together to be a great team. Maybe the catalyst they need will be the newest Nets' player, Carmelo Anthony, who was recently traded to the Nets by the Denver Nuggets. For now, the Nets are still waiting for that moment to happen and when it does, their fans will never stop watching.
