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.

John Salley was an original Detroit Pistons "Bad Boy." He helped the team to two championships in 1989 and 1990, and on the court, he embodied the team's blue-collar nickname--playing the role of enforcer and laying his body on the line for rebounds, loose balls and defensive plays.
