Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. We have a new one to unveil today, that of the Brooklyn Nets.
The Nets were formed in 1967, as the New Jersey Americans an inaugural ABA franchise. They would relocate after one year to New York City, and became the Nets, and with the arrival Julius Erving in 1974, they would win the ABA Title in 1974 and 1976. The Nets were one of the four teams to join the NBA, but they did so without Erving. They would return to New Jersey in 1977, where they would stay until 2012. The Nets have yet to win the NBA Championship, but did win the Eastern Conference in 2002 and 2003. They moved to Brooklyn in 2012, where they have remained since.
As for all of our top 50 players in basketball, we look at the following:
- Advanced Statistics.
- Traditional statistics and how they finished in the NBA.
- Playoff accomplishments.
- Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
Remember, this is ONLY based on what a player does on that particular team and not what he accomplished elsewhere and also note that we have placed increased importance on the first two categories.
This list is updated up until the end of the 2018-19 Season.
The complete list can be found here, but as always we announce our top five in this article. They are:
We will continue our adjustments on our existing lists and will continue developing our new lists.
As always we thank you for your support.
