15-year NBA veteran, Salley was the first NBA player to win four championships with three different teams - the Detroit Pistons, Chicago Bulls, and Los Angeles Lakers. Following his retirement from the NBA in 2000, he tried his hand on the silver screen with roles in Bad Boys and Bad Boys 2, Eddie, and Jerry Bruckheimer's Confession of a Shopaholic. On television, Salley has hosted numerous award shows: the Emmy-nominated, critically acclaimed The Best Damn Sports Show Period on Fox Sports Net; Ballers on BET; his own talk show Game On! on The Reelz Channel; The Car Show on The Speed Channel; and most recently, the reunion shows of VH-1's #1 rated Basketball Wives. He was also the host of "The John Salley Block Party" on 100.3 "The Beat Morning Show" in Los Angeles.

Salley is also the head of his own production company, John Salley Presents, Inc., where he uses his uncanny ability to find unique and interesting people and projects for television, film, and the Internet. He is also actively involved with Operation Smile, and the fight against diabetes, for which he has actively petitioned Congress to support the Child Nutrition Act and increase vegetarian options in meals served in public schools.
