Friends have come and gone throughout my life. Some I still love. Some I know who they truly are: friends that were never truly my friends, because they themselves didn’t know who they were.

When times were great, many friends showed up out of the woodwork to congratulate me: when I made the NBA, or when my first book was published by HarperCollins.

When times were bad, those friends were nowhere to be seen.

Whether you are at rock bottom or at the highest peak, you always find out who your friends are. And who you are is the beat you keep through it all.

Always be consistent in who you are, in your integrity. And no matter what life is throwing at you, you will lear the lesson, the hard way, that life is never as good as it seems, nor as bad as it seems. The truth is always somewhere in between.

Life is never as good as it seems, nor as bad as it seems. The truth is always somewhere in between.
