Mediocrity and underachievement are not uncommon to the franchise of the Brooklyn Nets.

Embarrassing roster moves, coaching changes and off-court scenarios have also been a staple of the Nets' organization ever since the team was founded in 1967.

The team hasn't really shown any consistent amount of success aside from its back-to-back appearances in the NBA Finals in 2001-02 and 2002-03.

The Nets won two championships as the New York Nets when they were in the ABA but have yet to win a championship in the NBA.

Owner Mikhail Prokhorov planned for that to change when he implemented his new set of goals, but the Nets' inconsistent start to this season (20-15) has left many wondering if this team is cut out to compete with the big boys.

But then again, the Nets have never given fans a reason to expect great things. If history means anything, then their early inconsistencies this season should come as no surprise.

If anything, they should be a preview to what we can expect throughout the rest of the season.

Still, there are plenty of other instances where the Nets' efforts proved futile.
