Shaquille O'Neal has always held himself accountable for wins and losses and claims that people should blame him if the Suns aren't a success on the court this season.
"If we don't win, that's my fault," O'Neal said. "I accept it. I'm harder on myself than any of you guys could ever be on me. That's why all of you writers don't bother me. I accept that. I've been that way since my rookie year.
"If you want to be the man, you have to accept what comes with being the man. You want to be the man, and you want to make a lot of money, and you want to be able to do your thing. But when things don't go right, the man gets blamed, period."
