“I think Kyrie Irving is the premier athlete — professional,” Salley said. “I think he’s conscious. I think he thinks it through. I think it’s very important that people pay attention too, he’s not into the lies, the glitz. He’s into taking care of his body.” Salley said he knows Irving is into science and does his own research, but because his stance differs from the views of mainstream society … people hate Kyrie because of it. “I’m the biggest Kyrie fan,” Salley added. “Everything he does, I take my hat off to him.”
On Bill Laimbeer’s phantom foul on Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in Game 6 of the 1988 Finals: “He got him on the knee! You have to understand the trickery. It looked clean from up top, but he had that big belly just bumping up against Kareem and it threw him off balance. Everybody knew that. I have the same argument with Isiah and John Salley: ‘Just give it up, guys! It was a foul.’”
Rich Eisen Show: “Larry Bird would put fear in me and everyone else just like Luka does.” Incredibly high praise for @Luka7Doncic from @TheJohnSalley who backs it up by telling an all-time great Bird story before telling us how far Luka can take @DallasMavs

John Salley: 'Kobe Bryant is the greatest Laker of all time'

Jason “White Chocolate” Williams is wrong … Kobe Bryant’s not only in the top five greatest Lakers of all time — he’s number one! … that’s according to former Los Angeles Lakers center (and former Kobe teammate) John Salley, who tells TMZ Sports there is no better Laker ever than the Black Mamba. “Kobe is the greatest Laker of all time,” Salley said outside of LAX this week.

Williams didn’t elaborate on why … but he said he knew the opinion would ruffle feathers. Salley wasn’t pissed about the former NBA point guard’s hot take — but he made it clear to us, Kobe is his No. 1 all-time. “When you say greatest Laker, I’m just going to go with Jerry West, then it was Magic Johnson,” the four-time champion said. “And then, 20 years of Kobe changed the whole attitude.”
