With a franchise history that spans nearly five decades and two leagues, the Brooklyn Nets have had a handful of great players pass through the organization. 

A litany of Hall of Famers, All-NBA team members, and All-Stars have donned a Nets jersey at some point in their career.

Some spent more time than others, and most of the guys on this list were with the franchise for their best seasons.

Some names you may think about very quickly — of the top of your head, perhaps. Others, however, you might have to dig deep.

The following five guys will be placed by position and, even though they might not be the five best players, they’re the best at their respective positions.

I'm obsessed with basketball. I play (my hesi pull-up Jimbo is cash), I write and cover the Nets here at ESNY. My work has been seen on Bleacher Report, Sports Illustrated and FanSided. I also run my company, TBN Media. My favorite NBA player is Isaiah Thomas because I can look him in the eye.
