NY - Dynasties are not found often. Especially in a league as frantic as the NFL. Only a few franchises come to mind when you talk about successful NFL dynasties. Green Bay had Lombardi, Favre, and now Rodgers. Indianapolis had Johnny Unitas and then Peyton Manning. Dallas had Irving, Aikman, and Jimmy Johnson. Chicago, Pittsburgh, and the NY football Giants all have also had their stretches of greatness. Not to mention the most recently established dynasty in Boston with Brady and Belichick. However a team that has been around since the 60s but has captured only one Super Bowl is the New York Jets. The Jets have been a franchise of pure mediocrity for the majority of its time. Questionable moves by the front office have often led to their ultimate demise and sometimes even embarrassment. And although they've had their share of solid teams that occasionally make the playoffs, have we ever really gone into a season and said the New York Jets are a team to look out for this in the upcoming season?

The Jets are often found behind the shadow of their neighbor and NFC rival, the New York Giants. The Giants have more championships and all though may not make the headlines as often as the Jets seem to find their way to have Super Bowl success.

So what is it that they are doing wrong? Well for one the Jets have not had a franchise quarterback since the last time the Jets won the Super Bowl. Broadway Joe Namath was their quarterback. Since Namath, the Jets have not been able to find the franchise quarterback. Mark Sanchez became an average game manager that probably held the Jets back from anything too great. And now the Jets find themselves with another QB issue with their recent pick Geno Smith struggling to adapt the NFL. The Jets picked up veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick to take the reigns but Fitzpatrick isn't going to be the face of this franchise.

If the Jets want to become a dynasty, their going to need to find the man who can handle the lights, the pressure, and the attention in New York (something that is not too easy to find). But for now the Jets will have to settle with Fitzpatrick. Can the Jets make some noise with the addition of Brandon Marshall and the return of Darrelle Revis, certainly. But are they going to really threaten the Pats and be a threat in the playoffs, highly unlikely.

718 seems to have very little interest in keeping Brook Lopez on the roster before opening night. "Do you really think I'm gonna let a dude who is 7 feet and grabs 6 boards a game on my court. This dude is more worried about getting every comic book than boxing out. He is also just not chill and not a guy you want in Brooklyn. Brook Lopez is soft as tissue paper and he is not a Brooklyn Net. He will be traded immediately."

Since the announcement, GMs having been lining up to offer 718 their whole kitchen sink in an attempt to acquire the former All Star bigman. "Well he doesn't want me here. I'm just waiting to get out of here so I can move on with my career and being the best bigman I can be," Lopez said. "Bruh, I know it, Brooklyn knows it, Billy King F*'d up. He did. He did. The Brooklyn Nets should have Dwight Howard as their center. But Billy King is an idiot. Im changing ish up now. Im talking right now. Brook Lopez is trash. Any GM dumb enough to take this piece of crap please take him now," 718 exclaimed.

According to ESPN, one of the first teams to call the Brooklyn Nets were the Detroit Pistons as they are looking to unload a young disgruntled Center, Andre Drummond. Sources told us that Drummond and 718 were seen at the club in Miami over the summer partying and having a good time. "We got hoes there. We got some *** in Miami. Dre were and I were chilling so I would love to make a deal with Detroit. That dude is the bro so it would be nice to have him repping Brooklyn." said 718.
In 2009, Russia's 3rd richest man according to Forbes, Mikhail Prokhorov, became the principal owner of the then New Jersey Nets. Prokhorov had envisioned taking of New York by storm with a then 5-year plan to win the NBA Championship in an attempt to quickly build a successful, storied Franchise in the largest city in the world, Brooklyn.

Fast-forward 5 years later, and the Brooklyn Nets are now a team with virtually no draft picks, the highest luxury tax in the league by far, and a frightening future. The GM, Billy King, made blind transactions sacrificing Brooklyn's future for a desperate "win-now" roster that truly just couldn't win.

Prokhorov has had enough of Billy King. Seeing him as simply a disappointment, King is promptly fired after the 2014-15 season with another disappointing 2nd round defeat in the playoffs. While Prokhorov was searching for a new man, he stumbled across a twitter handle *@Nets_Whiz718* who continuosly showed his true support for the franchise but also bringing great knowledge of basketball. Seeing Brooklyn as one of the most marketable cities and being that the Brooklyn fanbase, although has shown some loyalty and excitement about the new franchise, hasn't been able to connect with the franchise due to the former and current faces of the team being all acquired through free-agency or trades, Prokhorov felt like this was something new. It turns out the man behind the twitter handle is a 19 year old college whiz who's knowledge of the game is thought to be unparalleled. The college whiz who would only go by the name of "718," was hired by Prokhorov originally as a social media intern who was thought to possibly help market Brooklyn a little more and become a loved franchise within the city. However, 718's genius was too obvious to ignore and was seen by Brooklyn Nets HC Lionel Hollins. After multiple discussions between Hollins, Prokhorov, and 718, it was agreed that 718 had the mind, composure, marketability, and the "it"-factor to become the new General Manager of the Brooklyn Nets.

Now 718's roster certainly isn't one to take over the New York just yet... but it shouldn't be too hard with Knickerbockers still in town (More on that rivalry later). The Nets would go on to buyout the contract of the man originally thought to re-energize the franchise, Deron Williams. And with one more year left on Joe Johnson's controversially high contract, the Nets finally have their first opportunity since they moved to Brooklyn to shed some cap space and be able to finally climb their way out of the huge ditch Billy King stumbled into. But 718 who has mastered the skill of negotiating at the ripe age of 19, has said no one on the team is safe right now. "That dude King is a *******," 718 said after he was asked about the state of the team King had left. "As a diehard fan of this team, did King really thing that fat, lazy, selfish bum Deron Williams could turn this franchise around. Did he really think that Brook Lopez is that good? Welp now we are here. But you know what, this is where I'm going to shine. The city of Brooklyn be back. The 718 is about to take over. I know people rolling there eyes saying how is a 19 year old kid gonna save this team? Bruh its gonna happen. I promise y'all its gonna happen."

718 is bold. Confident. In many cases, probably the cockiest dude I've ever seen hold a General Manager's position in the National Basketball Association. But if he's as smart as everyone says he is, the Nets may not be in as bad of a position as one would think. Well I hope for 718's sake he can get the Nets back on track because this is a lot of pressure on a dude who wouldn't even be legally allowed to celebrate a champagne shower with the team if they were to make the playoffs. "I ain't bout the pressure. I'm worried bout us. For those of you watching, all NBA fans out there. Whether you have a team or not. If you want to watch a team who epitomizes everything Brooklyn stands for: meaning heart, defense, and a little bit of swagger. Watch us play. I ain't guaranteeing a chip in 5 years like the bossman Russian said. But I'm guaranteeing you gonna like Brooklyn Ball."
