The Brooklyn Nets started in 1967 as New York Americans in the ABA, a competitive NBA league. After a year they moved to Long Island and renamed themselves the New York Nets. In 1973 the Nets signed Julius Erving and got me Dr. J the first title. In 1977 the ABA was dissolved and the Nets joined the NBA as New Jersey Nets - since the Knicks already existed in New York. After years of failure, the Nets reached the playoffs with their new star Drazen Petrovic in the early 90s. After his sudden death, it was not until the 2000s that the New Jersey Nets were able to celebrate success again. In 2002 and 2003 they were each in the NBA Finals, but lost to the Lakers and Spurs. With the departure of the trio Jason Kidd, Vince Carter and Richard Jefferson, however, the Nets disappeared again into insignificance at the end of the 2000s. In 2012 the team was relocated to Brooklyn. With Jason Kidd as coach and the trades of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry, Brooklyn was hoping for a successful time. In retrospect, however, the trade turned out to be a failure, the aging stars were unable to bring the Nets any success and the draft picks that were given away meant that the Nets could not sign new talent in the future either. Only in 2018 could you reach the playoffs with talented players. In the offseason, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, two absolute stars were signed, with which the Brooklyn Nets hat sales also skyrocketed.

Before that, the New Jersey Nets had blue and red as their team colors, which was also reflected in the logos. From 1998-2012 the Nets had a 3-D logo, which showed a similar sign, but with a ring around the ball. In 1991-97 a bold Nets lettering with a ball underneath and a blue-white-red gradient was used as a logo. The first NBA logo as New Jersey Nets appeared in 1979 with a blue and red circle showing the state of New Jersey and the team name in white in a simple font. The ABA logos in front were with curved Nets lettering and the three-colored ABA basketball in blah-white-red.
