Falling short of a goal isn't necessarily underachieving. Not playing up to your capabilities is. And just because playing up to your capabilities happened to result in the good fortune of a championship once doesn't mean you've underachieved if it doesn't happen again.

Mavericks unexpectedly won a title last year. Pretty much universally agreed that they overachieved. So if they don't win it again they've now underachieved? Just doesn't make sense to me.
