HoopsHype John Salley rumors


July 30, 2010 Updates

John Salley: Seikaly was one of my guys. He knew I wasn't there to take his job; I was there to play power forward. One day, he says to me, "Hey, man, how do you play all the way into June?" Remember, I'd been with the Pistons for six seasons and made the playoffs every year. I say, "What'd you say?" He goes, "The playoffs, third round, you guys play all the way to, like, June 28." "Uh, that's what you do when you win a championship," I say. "But you only get paid from November to April. That's taking too much of the summer, man. This is ridiculous." I say: "Well, playing for a championship is about pride. It's not about money." He says: "It has to be, because this is some bullshit. You guys play an extra two months." And I was like, holy shit. I didn't even realize it. I was playing an extra two-and-a-half months, for free. Deadspin.com
