    Though four American Basketball Association teams joined the NBA in 1976, the league that popularized the three-point shot and slam-dunk contests has been all but forgotten.
    When Deron Williams scored 57 points for the New Jersey Nets in a win over Charlotte March 4, news stories said he had set “a Nets franchise single-game scoring record.”
    But when the team was the New York Nets in the ABA, the incredible Julius “Dr. J” Erving scored 63 points for them in a game against San Diego. That is the Nets’ true franchise scoring record.
