‘Honestly, We’ve Got a Long Way to Go’
The gaming industry has come a long way in the past few decades, and it’s only just now starting to see its potential. There are still many problems that need to be solved before we can finally make progress as gamers.
Honestly, We’ve Got a Long Way to Go is a song by the American rock band The Who. It was released as a single in 1969 and later appeared on their 1970 album, Odds & Sods.
With or without point guard Kyrie Irving, the Brooklyn Nets are generally anticipated to be one of the top contenders for the NBA championship in 2021-22.
Kevin Durant and James Harden, two of the best players in the NBA, are still in Brooklyn. The Nets acquired frontcourt stalwarts Paul Millsap and LaMarcus Aldridge, as well as swingman Bruce Brown and Joe Harris to provide flexibility and defense. Patty Mills provides a crucial backcourt presence for the Nets, especially in the absence of Kyrie Irving.
The Nets were unable to make a real run at the championship last season due to injuries, but they should be in contention this season (barring more physical setbacks). Coach Steve Nash, on the other hand, is already attempting to dampen expectations. Fans should pump the brakes and prepare for an adjustment phase, according to the second-year head coach.
For the Brooklyn Nets, this preseason has been unusual.
The Brooklyn Nets have had a strange offseason.
Millsap was brought in to replace Jeff Green, who had left the team. Aldridge returned to the Nets after receiving medical clearance, and the club may have lucked into a potential scoring great in Cam Thomas, who was selected late in the first round of the 2021 NBA Draft.
However, there were some anomalies. DeAndre Jordan was bought out by the Nets, who immediately joined with the Los Angeles Lakers and had harsh comments for his previous team. Sean Marks, the Brooklyn Nets’ general manager, was confident that both Harden and Irving will be signed to long-term contracts. The Beard, on the other hand, seems to be content to test the waters in free agency next summer if the club is only willing to re-sign him.
The most noteworthy offseason event is Irving’s reluctance to get immunized. The Nets said that he would not be able to return to the club until he was completely eligible, and that they would not seek contract extensions. Uncle Drew might even be a trade possibility, but buyers may be cautious of his immunization history.
All of the weirdness, along with Durant’s and Harden’s limited preseason performances, may result in a sluggish start for Brooklyn.
Steve Nash believes that his squad still has a lot of work to do.
Despite the fact that this is just his second season as a head coach, Steve Nash seems to recognize the pressure he and his squad have heading into the 2021-22 season. His most recent statement has the potential to both reduce expectations and inspire his team.
The Nets haven’t spent enough time on the court together, according to Nash (h/t the New York Post), and will need time to settle into a rhythm.
“There are high expectations and pressure, and we have a long way to go.” I’m quite sure we’ve been on the court [together] at least 15 times for practices and games. So this is the sort of thing that will take a long time for us to do.’
–Steve Nash, as reported by the New York Post
The two-time NBA MVP sounded nearly willing to find a happy medium, saying it would be “wonderful” to get off to a “good” start and get everyone up to speed on fitness. Although Nash was a part of Mike D’Antoni’s “seven seconds or less” offense, the former star is not putting the wagon before the horse.
On Opening Night, the Nets will face the Milwaukee Bucks in a rematch from last season’s playoffs.

Despite Nash’s advice to be patient, the Nets will almost certainly be eager to put on a show on Opening Night.
Brooklyn opens the season against Giannis Antetokounmpo and the reigning champion Milwaukee Bucks in a playoff rematch. Despite missing Irving and Harden due to hamstring injuries, the Nets came close to defeating Milwaukee last season, pushing the Bucks to seven games.
The state of The Beard’s hamstring may have an impact on the Nets’ start. Harden has insisted that he is in good condition, but how Nash handles his workload will be fascinating to watch. It’s possible that Durant will have to set the tone once again.
In just a few days, Brooklyn’s quest for atonement will begin. Steve Nash, on the other hand, recognizes that it’s an 82-game marathon, not a sprint.
