While the Brooklyn Nets had a rather disappointing end to their 2021-22 season, their goal of winning a championship hasn't changed. However, general manager Sean Marks admitted their poor season that concluded in a playoff sweep was a “wake-up call” for them.

Marks highlighted that the window is closing for them, as for any team with an aging roster. Kevin Durant didn't look as dominant as he was in previous years against the Boston Celtics, while Kyrie Irving was simply not his usual self anymore.

While that is the case, however, Marks remains confident they still have what it takes to reach the NBA Finals and get the job done. He is also hopeful that the painful awakening they got will add fuel to their motivation for them to bounce back next season.

The Nets have plenty of questions to answer this offseason, the biggest one being Kyrie Irving's future with the team. The veteran guard has expressed his desire to return and make his partnership work with Kevin Durant, but Brooklyn has remained mum on their next move.

For what it's worth, Sean Marks did say that he believes that they have the right group now to achieve their championship aspirations. But clearly after that sweeping exit at the hands of the Celtics, some changes need to be made.
