Opened in 2012 in the heart of Brooklyn, Barclays Center is a venue that plays host to the Brooklyn Nets of the NBA and the New York Islanders of the NHL, in addition to plenty of special events in the music word as well as other forms of entertainment. What Barclays Center lacks in a lengthy history when compared to other venues, it has made up for by continuously hosting some of the most high-profile events.
Perhaps the most exciting time in the young history of Barclays Center was when the Brooklyn Nets found themselves as a regular playoff team in the NBA's Eastern Conference. The Nets ended up in a rivalry of sorts with the Toronto Raptors, who they met with multiple times in the early rounds of the Eastern Conference playoffs. With Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce leading the team behind their championship experience from their time as Boston Celtics, the Nets were one of the more interesting teams in the NBA for a long time in Barclays Center.
In addition to the exciting NBA basketball that has taken place at Barclays Center, the venue has also seen its share of great college hoops, with Barclays Center hosting the Legends Classic, ACC Tournament, along with select games from the NCAA Tournament in the past, most notably an upset by 14-seed Stephen F. Austin over West Virginia in 2016.
Barclays Center has hosted many big name entertainment events throughout its history also, including the eight day opening concert series put on by Jay-Z, as well as appearances by Beyonce, Justin Bieber, and countless others. Barclays Center has also found its niche as the annual host of one of WWE's biggest events each year, SummerSlam, where stars such as Brock Lesnar and the Undertaker have squared off in the squared circle.
