John Salley is an NBA veteran of 11 seasons. He is the first basketball player in NBA history to win four championships with three different teams. Drafted out of Georgia Tech in 1986 by the Detroit Pistons, Salley was a member of the "Bad Boys" squad which included Isaiah Thomas and the infamous Dennis Rodman; a team that went on to win back-to-back championships in 1989 and 1990. Following stints with the Miami Heat and Toronto Raptors, Salley played with Michael Jordan as part of the Chicago Bulls 1996 championship team. After a brief retirement to co-host NBA on NBC, Phil Jackson invited Salley to come join the Los Angeles Lakers where he was on the 2000 NBA Championship team.
