Many consider the 02-03 Nets the best team in franchise history after years of irrelevancy.
Jason Kidd brought the team from perennial laughing stock up, to the elite of the Eastern Conference. The Nets lost in the Finals that year to the San Antonio Spurs but not before making their presence felt throughout the league. Kerry Kittles, Richard Jefferson, Kenyon Martin and Lucious Harris made the Nets a major factor and garnered respect from it's back to back Finals apperances. Don't forget to mention the one and only Dikembe Mutumbo, who only played 24 games that season, but that didn't stop him from averaging 1.5 blocks per game.
