Brooklyn Nets Tickets 2019 Outlook
Throughout the short history of the Brooklyn Nets, this will be one of their most anticipated seasons yet. Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and DeAndre Jordan were all major signings for the Brooklyn Nets. Unfortunately, Kevin Durant tore his achilles in the NBA Finals, and will miss most of next season. The future looks bright once this trio can get on the floor together. It has been years since the Nets have made a playoff run, but thanks to Irving and Jordan that could all change this season. The sky is the limit for the Nets once Kevin Durant returns.
The upstart Nets battled their way to the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference Playoffs last season, and are clearly looking to build on that success. They will have to do it without the help of their best player from last season, All-Star D'Angelo Russell, who was traded to the Golden State Warriors. Some of the supporting cast that will be pivotal to the success of the Brooklyn Nets includes Jarrett Allen, Caris Levert, Spencer Dinwiddie and Wilson Chandler. The Nets have gone from young contenders to savvy veterans in one offseason. In a year where the Eastern Conference is up for grabs, the Nets should find themselves right in the mix.
With Jay-Z and Beyonce sitting courtside on a frequent basis and a much improved team, the Barclays Center will be packed every Nets home game. Secure your Brooklyn Nets tickets today to cheer on your favorite team.
History of the Brooklyn Nets
The Brooklyn Nets were founded in 1967 as the New Jersey Americans. Almost immediately after their first season, the franchise moved to Long Island and played as the New York Nets. The team moved back to New Jersey in 1977 to become the New Jersey Nets. The 2001-02 and 2002-03 seasons were the most successful – Jason Kidd led his team to the NBA Finals in both seasons. Sadly, the Nets were swept by the Los Angeles Lakers in 2002 and lost the series in 2003 4-2 to the San Antonio Spurs. Beginning in 2012, the Nets moved back to New York and changed its name to the Brooklyn Nets. Their current home is the Barclays Center, which the Nets have been playing in ever since the 2012-13 season. The Barclays Center cost an estimated $1 billion to construct and has a seating capacity of 17,732 for basketball games. It is also home to the NHL’s New York Islanders and NBA D-League’s Long Island Nets. The Brooklyn Nets are currently under the ownership of Mikhail Prokhorov (51%) and Joseph Tsai (49%). Sean Marks is the general manager and Kenny Atkinson is the head coach.
