The Nets have a great history that spans almost 50 years and with two different basketball leagues. Starting in 1968 in the American Basketball Association, the Nets have moved back and forth in the northeast before merging into the National Basketball Association in 1976 and settling in the city of Brooklyn in 2012. Along with the moves the Nets have made multiple changes to their logo history, which we are going to take a look at to see how it has changed over the years.
The Nets began in New Jersey in 1968 and, at the time, were known as the Americans as a founding ABA member by owner Arthur J. Brown. The team was fairly successful in their inaugural season, making the playoffs only to be eliminated after not being able to find a suitable playoff arena to play in.
