Brooklyn Nets 2014 Season

Brooklyn has started off the young 2014 NBA season with a 3 - 2 record. That places them 1 1/2 games back of Toronto in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference. That is also good enough for 1 1/2 games ahead of the rival Knicks in that division. The Nets are scoring nearly 105 points per game, so offense is not a problem. But in points allowed (98.6) the team is only average. In what appears to be a weak Atlantic Division, if the Nets begin playing defense and keep scoring at such a torrid pace, good things can happen this year. Former Atlanta Hawks forward Joe Johnson leads the team in scoring at 21.2 points per game. The aging but still productive Kevin Garnett adds 8.4 rebounds and 8.0 points per contest, with versatile point guard Deron Williams contributing 20 points, 2.2 rebounds and 7.0 assists each game.

Most Famous Nets Player of All-Time?

Arguably the most famous and favorite Net of all time was Hall of Famer Julius "Dr. J" Erving. The high flying forward was known for his rim rattling slam dunks and all-around play. The 2 ABA Championships the New York Nets earned in '74 and '76 were due in large part to Doctor J's efforts. In 1976 Erving won what may be the most memorable of all ABA slam dunk contests. George "The Ice Man" Gervin, former teammate Larry "Special K" Kenon, Artis "The A-Train" Gilmore and David "The Skywalker" Thompson challenged Erving in that contest. In that unforgettable performance, Julius dunked not 2 balls at once, and then brought the slam dunk contest to national prominence with his next move. He ran from one end of the basketball court to the other, jumping and dunking from the free throw line. Such a move had not been seen on the national stage before, and that single dunk made the slam dunk contest an annual mainstay.
