    Top Five Finals Performances in Nets History

    Believe it or not, there was a time when the Nets were at the league's highest stage, competing against the best of the best in the NBA Finals. In their history as an NBA team, Brooklyn has two NBA Finals appearances as the New Jersey Nets. Unfortunately, the Nets went 0-2 in 2002 and 2003, losing to the Lakers and Spurs, but with the 2024 NBA Finals approaching, it's only right that we look back and appreciate greatness for what it was. In one of the only NBA Finals wins in Nets history, K-Mart showed up down 2-1 in Continental Airlines Arena, outplaying nearly every Spur except Tim Duncan.
