How would you explain ‘good as any reason’ in the context? Every morning Bull’s Eye stands naked in the lav, shaving his face. He looks twenty. He says he’s only the same age as everybody else here, plus a few hard knocks. He says you grow up fast when the South Sea Bubble bursts and your dad gets the boot. He doesn’t go home either. We have that in common: dads who won’t look a son in the eye. He says it’s good as any reason for friendship. How would you explain ‘good as any reason’ in the context? Does it mean it’s the best reason? Thanks!

"As good as any reason" means that there are a number of reasons, and this one is not worse than any other. So it is not a positive term in the sense that "it is the best," just that it is no worse than the others.
