From Kevin Garnett's 15 All-Star appearances to Alan Anderson's two European national championship, the new Nets are an accomplished bunch. We decided to list it all, a final bling count if you will.

All-Star games: 36 by six players (Kevin Garnett 15, Paul Pierce 10, Joe Johnson 6, Deron Williams 3, Brook Lopez and Andrei Kirilenko 1 each); NBA championships: 3 (Garnett, Pierce and Jason Terry one each); All-NBA selections: 16 (Garnett 9, Pierce 4, Williams 2, Johnson 1); All-Defensive team: 15 (Garnett 12, Kirilenko 3); Olympic medals: 4 (Williams 2 golds, Garnett a gold, Kirilenko a bronze); Regular season MVP: 1 (Garnett); Finals MVP: 1 (Pierce); All-Star Game MVP: 1 (Garnett); Defensive Player of the Year: 1 (Garnett); Sixth Man of the Year: 1 (Terry); Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award: 1 (Garnett); Euroleague MVP: 1 (Kirilenko); FIBA Eurobasket MVP: 1 (Kirilenko); FIBA Europe Player of the Year: 2 (Kirilenko); Euroleague Defensive Player of the Year: 1 (Kirilenko); All-Rookie Team: 7 (Garnett, Pierce, Williams, Johnson, Lopez, Terry, Kirilenko).

Kirilenko, Mirza Teletovic and Alan Anderson have won seven European national league championships among them. Kirilenko won Russian league championships in 2000 and 2012, Teletovic won the Belgian League championship in 2006, and the Spanish ACB league championships in 2008 and 2010, while Anderson won the Croatian League championship in 2009 and the Spanish ACB League championship in 2011. Reggie Evans and Tyshawn Taylor won gold medals in the FIBA Under-21 (2001) and Under-19 world championships (2009), respectively. Also, Terry and Mason Plumlee have NCAA championship rings.

And we aren't even talking about Jason Kidd's bling!
