Nothing is guaranteed in life. Remember that the next time you make a wild promise like the one Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov made five years ago.

When Prokhorov bought the team in 2010, the Russian billionaire playboy gave the team's fans a vow that if his five-year plan to bring home an NBA championship trophy to the Nets didn't work, he would get married. Well, Prokhorov gave his fans a double whammy of broken promises instead: First, it's obvious that Brooklyn hasn't gone hard enough to bring home a ring yet. Second, in a video uploaded on the team's website Tuesday, he addressed the teams's status and offseason moves for the upcoming 2015-16 season. Additionally, he gave a huge Dave Chappelle-style "SIKE!" with regards to him getting married now that his five years are up:

Prokhorov has enough money to buy some of the best players in the league. But it's not enough to buy him love—and apparently, he prefers it that way. You won't be seeing this guy on The Bachelor anytime soon.
