1[on his publicly nasty divorce] It was horrible, of course, but at the same time it was one of the best things to ever happen to me," he said. "You have all these things being said about you, things that aren't true, but you can't control any of it. At first I was freaking out, but then I just realized: the only thing I can be is me. I used to be really worried what people thought, and I always tried to act in ways to make sure I was liked. And you know what? Suddenly none of that mattered. So I just started being myself, and I got really comfortable with that, and I think that's what people like about seeing me on the show ('Live With...').
2When you're a 20-something-year-old athlete and you're getting a six-figure check every week, you're not thinking about next week. You're not thinking, 'I'm going to be broke,' or 'I'm going to need another job.' But I'll tell you, there are a lot of broke athletes out there - I know plenty - and I didn't want to end up as one.
