Right or wrong, Tracy McGrady has a reputation of disappearing in the playoffs. He's not doing himself any favors with quotes like this one:
"It's my fault," McGrady said. "It's my fault we missed free throws. It's my fault we lost both games. Blame me. It's my fault we fouled to tie the game up. That's my fault. It's my fault they get easy layups. It's my fault we're not executing well on the offensive end. It's my fault a couple people in the stands ordered Heinekens and they got Budweiser. It's my fault. I'm sorry."
Told the beer reference might have revealed his straight-faced sarcasm, McGrady rolled on.
"I am serious," he said. "It's my fault. Everything is my fault. It's my fault. It's T-Mac's fault.
"Everybody's blaming me. The Suns (for being down 2-0 to the Spurs). I mean, everybody. That's what it seems like. It's my fault. I'm out there by myself."
Looks like someone can't handle the spotlight. Can you imagine KG saying something like this?
