    “This kids team was getting pretty good.” No there was no team, only lebron.

      Collapse is such an awesome series. Very interesting how teams with so much promise fall apart before even reaching their peak

        one question: what's the timeline based on? Is it arbitrary ups and downs? I don't get it...

              I watched all 82 games every season and this is a very good summation of what happened.

                This video starts under the premise that the Nets ever stood a chance against any of the west teams, which they did not. Getting to the finals was as good as it was ever going to get for them.

                    I was one of the guys who thought they would be lethal when they got Vince Carter for nothing. Jason Kidd, Vince Carter and Richard Jefferson on one team looked amazing. But they were a massive disappointment.

                      "All those Nets had to do was" dethrone Kobe & Shaq, and then beat 2-time reigning MVP Tim Duncan. NBD

                        I respect this video alot. As someone who grew up in New Jersey all my life, Jason Kidd single-handedly took the Nets to the finals twice. Against the Spurs, it was like no one was even paying attention what Kidd and the Nets were doing. One of the greatest PGs of all time

                          Do an episode about the Utah Jazz during their Stockton-to-Malone hay days. I thought for sure they would win the Finals with those two amazing players and the great supporting players they had.

                                  Positive note, they made the playoffs again with DLo leading the way.

                                            The Nets of 2002, 2003 are the worst Eastern conference champion ever. They only won the East because the refs screwed the Sixers both years...

                                              You see why players that are good dont want to stick around, yall talk about loyalty but fail to see how the very same teams aren't loyal to the players, stay being salty at players like KD but the dude is just looking out for himself

                                                  0:28. Say what??? Did you even watch the 2003 finals? It may have went six games but it wasn’t even that close. There was never a doubt. The Spurs were always in control.

I have been following the Nets since their losing seasons back in the late 80s and 90s. I stuck with them inspite of losing records season after season. I though the team should've had stayed in New Jersey as cross town rivals to the Knicks. I miss them playing in Jersey.
