The Nets have had a lot of great players in their history, but we narrowed it down to who we believe are the top 10. In the last article, we talked about who we thought were numbers 10-6 in Nets history. We included old time players like Billy Paultz and Derrick Coleman, but we also included some more recent guys, like Brook Lopez and Richard Jefferson. This list is mainly based off of production as a Net. Players that produced at a high level for a long time or produced at a really high level for a decent amount of time are the qualifiers for this, although one of the players we included gets a bit of a boost due to career longevity.

The top 5 Nets contains a mix of all sorts of players, newer and older. It includes legends, fan favorites, and hard-working team players. These 5 players, in our opinion, were the 5 most impactful players that ever took the court for the Nets. A few honorable mentions include Drazen Petrovic, Keith Van Horn, Rick Barry, and Otis Birdsong. These players unfortunately did not make it due to either lack of time or lack of team success during their tenure (Keith Van Horn). Now, without further ado, here is our list of the top 5 Nets of all time.

Next: No. 5
