For most of their history the Nets have been one of the most maligned teams in the NBA. They’ve been the eastern conferences version of the Clippers. A team who habitually loses and does so many stupid things that it becomes comical. And if comedy is what you like that the tale of the New Jersey Swamp Dragons is for you. Swamp Dragons? What the …. are the Swamp Dragons? what is a Swamp Dragon? In the summer of 1994 the New Jersey Nets considered rebranding their franchise the Swamp Dragons.
Sports is a big part of the American culture. These games are vehicles for transmitting values such as teamwork, fair play and justice. They have also played a part in bonding the entire nation together by contributing to social and racial integration.
