Brooklyn Nets

The Brooklyn Nets are now based in Brooklyn, New York, but their history is etched within New Jersey. They were originally a founding member of the American Basketball Association and named the New York Americans, and were set to play at the 69th Regiment Armory until pressure from the Knicks who had played there forced a venue switch. They went instead to play at the Teaneck Armory in New Jersey, and though the official name was still the New York Americans, they would be known as the New Jersey Americans when they played.

Moving to New York in their second season, they would go on to become the New York Nets - which obviously refers to a basketball net but also rhymes with Jets and Mets - two other New York metropolitan teams.

The American Basketball Association and National Basketball Association merged in 1976, and the Nets looked well placed to continue their dominant run of two championships in three seasons. However the NBA made the Nets pay the Knicks $4.8 million for encroaching on their territory, and this forced the Nets to trade star Julius Erving in order to raise money for the fee and membership into the NBA. The Nets were quickly forced to return to New Jersey prior to the 77-78 season due to a poor financial situation and lowly attendances, in spite of the Knicks attempts to block the move. It was at this point they would become the New Jersey Nets.

The Nets went through a particularly challenging phase in the 90s, where they were almost set to be rebranded as the Swamp Dragons, however co-owner David Gerstein would end up vetoing this change.

They would remain the New Jersey Nets until 2012, where they became the Brooklyn Nets. This was part of a planned move back to New York, having failed to secure a new deal for a new arena in New Jersey in 2004. The Nets have played at the Barclays Center ever since.

New Jersey Devils

Based in Newark in New Jersey since 2007, the New Jersey Devils are an ice hockey team that competes in the Metropolitan division of the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League (NHL). After the New Jersey Nets moved to Brooklyn and became known as the Brooklyn Nets, the Devils were the only franchise in major league sports associated with the state of New Jersey. The club however was not originally based in New Jersey, originating in 1974 as the Kansas City Scouts, before quickly moving after a lack of success to Denver in 1976 where they would become known as the Colorado Rockies. The Rockies however would only make the playoffs once in what would become a short six year tenure in the NHL, and was relocated once again for the 1982-83 season to East Rutherford where they would become known as the New Jersey Devils.

The Devils would go onto to taste the ultimate success in 1995, winning the Stanley Cup for the first time with coach Jacques Lemaire. They would win become champions again in 2000 and 2003. The Devils would relocate once more, this time within the same state, to Newark in 2007. The Prudential Center, which opened at this time is still their home ground to this date. After a period of financial issues and new ownership, the Devils have settled recently, making the playoffs in the 2017-18 season for the first time since 2011-12.

New York Red Bulls

Established in October 1994, the New York Red Bulls are based in Harrison, New Jersey, a suburb in Newark just 23 miles away from New York. The Red Bulls compete in the MLS - Major League Soccer - where they are a part of the Eastern Conference. They were originally known as the New York/New Jersey MetroStars when they competed in the first season of Major League Soccer in America. In 2006, the club was bought by Red Bull, and they were rebranded accordingly to become the New York Red Bulls.

The Red Bulls play at Red Bull Arena, a stadium with 25,000 capacity - the third largest stadium specifically made for soccer in the US.

The New York/New Jersey MetroStars were billed for big things from their opening season, but have failed to lift the MLS cup thus far in the leagues relatively short history. One of the more bizarre periods of the club’s history was when they had reportedly signed Brazilian international superstars Juninho and Tulio in 1996 in the MLS draft. Juninho at the time was a 23 year old attacking midfielder dominating in the Premier League for Middlesbrough, whilst Tulio was a 21 year old many also were excited to believe was the Brazilian international superstar. The players were waived just 21 days after the draft on March 25th 1996, when it was revealed that both players were a case of mistaken identity. Juninho was actually revealed to be Edivaldo Sarafim da Silva Júnior, whilst the identity of Tulio never was revealed - as he simply never appeared in New Jersey.
