The New Jersey Storm were a member of the National Lacrosse League, based in East Rutherford, New Jersey. They played from 2002 to 2003 playing at the then Continental Airlines Arena before record crowds. The team was an expansion team that was purchased for $14 million by an equity investment ownership group led former NBA All-Star Jayson Williams, DJ O'Shea, and Anthony Santye. After the 2003, in New Jersey, the team was sold for a reported $31 million and relocated to Anaheim, California, becoming the Anaheim Storm under a new ownership group.

The NLL returned to the New York Metro area in 2007 with the inaugural season of the New York Titans, who would play at Madison Square Garden and Nassau Coliseum. The Titans would play for three seasons before relocating to Orlando, Florida.
