Recalling the Nets in the ABA

May 5, 2014

A misguided radio reporter during the Brooklyn Nets win over the Toronto Raptors on Sunday’s crucial game 7 of the first round of NBA playoffs called it the first 7th game victory in Nets team history. But, wait a minute, doesn’t anyone recall the Nets in the ABA?

Twice the Nets won deciding 7th games in the ABA. In 1972 they won at Virginia vs Julius “Dr. J.” Erving and the Squires.

In 1976, this time with the great Dr. J as a Net, they won game 7 over the San Antonio Spurs.

The ABA was an important part of basketball history. Please don’t forget the league and its players.
