In the ongoing tussle between New York's finest NBA teams, comparisons are often drawn between the New York Knicks and the Brooklyn Nets. In fairness, it's a tough call. The New York Knicks appear to be the better team based on their history of wins, what with 2 NBA Championship Titles in 1970 and 1973.
The New Jersey Nets team was established in 1967, in the Garden State. However, the team moved from New Jersey to New York, back to New Jersey, and then back to Brooklyn. The reason why the team kept straddling the state lines between New York and New Jersey was poor crowd attendance, but that didn't stop the steam from racking up some incredible victories over the years.
