John "The Spider" Salley is a Detroit Pistons great who was apart of "The Bad Boys" era of the late 80s, which won back to back NBA titles. The Brooklyn, New York native was the first NBA player to win four championships with three different teams.

After his retirement from the NBA in 2000, Salley explored several opportunities in both television and film. John has served as host for numerous award shows and recently hosted the reunion shows of VH-1’s #1 rated show, "Basketball Wives." John has also spent seven years serving as the co-host for the Emmy nominated, critically acclaimed “The Best Damn Sports Show Period” on Fox Sports Net along with becoming the host of the sports talk show “Ballers” on BET.
Salley joined "Current Sports" host Al Martin via satellite from his home in Los Angeles, California to discuss Father's Day, the NBA Finals, his advocacy for marijuana in sports and so much more!
