They say life isn’t fair, but still, one can’t have it all.
Elite athleticism and immense strength. A precious collection of hardware topped by NBA championship rings, Most Valuable Player trophies, and Olympic Gold Medals. A stacked resume boasting of a myriad of individual awards. Numerous entries in the league record book. Multiple business investments and charities. A lifetime deal with a giant brand. A beautiful family.

I tell him you can’t have everything. I tell him all the time: You can’t have it all! You have to give up one thing, and it just so happened it’s your hair. If someone told me I’m gonna give you $600 million but I’m going to take your hair? Take my hair!
