Shaq: ‘I Will Go out with a Bang’

Suns center Shaquille O’Neal on Thursday talked with a Chicago radio show.

"In my experience, it takes two or three years to get a group of guys together that could possibly get it done," O’Neal said. "When I was in Orlando, we had a group of guys who couldn’t get it there, and we added the piece in Horace Grant and it took us over the top. I think I was the piece that they (the Suns) were missing. Next year, we’ll have a full season, and things look pretty good.

"I think I can do enough to still get us there to win. . . . I will go out with a bang. My name will be remembered." [AZ Central]
