About this Quote
In the context of basketball, Shaquille O'Neal is referring to the reality that he needs to play against both a front defender as well as a back defender every game, while various other star players like Yao Ming, Tim Duncan, as well as Kevin Garnett might only need to bet one defender at once. O'Neal feels that this makes his task harder and also one-of-a-kind contrasted to other gamers.
