In the summer of 2012, the Nets finally made their move to Brooklyn. The Nets had called New Jersey their home for 35 years, but in 2012, they went back to their roots by moving back to New York. This was a smart move for the Nets, due to how poorly the team had been performing in New Jersey. By moving the team into a bigger market and trading for talent, the Nets were able to build a lot of hype surrounding the team. For the most part, the Nets were competitive during their first three seasons in Brooklyn.
The only problem is they have been a team in decline since the move. Due to the decision made at number five on this list, the Nets are finding themselves in a bad place. Hopefully the team can continue to find ways to rebuild by using the assets they own.
