About Brooklyn Nets

The Brooklyn Nets were officially launched in April 2012 and play their home games at Barclays Center located at the crossroads of Brooklyn, Atlantic and Flatbush avenues. The team's brand identity, including its logos and black and white color scheme, was created by JAY Z. The colors speak to Brooklyn's strong traditions, reflecting the color palette of the old New York subway signage system, and convey an uncompromising confidence.

The Brooklyn Nets are part of the Eastern Conference's Atlantic Division. Prior to its relocation to Brooklyn, the team was called the New Jersey Nets. Starting in 1977, the Nets played their first four seasons in New Jersey at the Rutgers Athletic Center in Piscataway, before moving in 1981 to Brendan Byrne Arena in East Rutherford (later renamed Continental Airlines Arena and IZOD Center). They remained in East Rutherford for 29 seasons until relocating to the Prudential Center in Newark in 2010. The New Jersey Nets reached the postseason 16 times, won four Atlantic Division titles and two Eastern Conference Championships, reaching the NBA Finals in 2002 and 2003.

Located atop one of the largest transportation hubs in New York City, Barclays Center will be accessible by 11 subway lines, the Long Island Rail Road, and 11 bus lines.
