Jackson led the Lakers to five championships during his tenure in Los Angeles, including three consecutive titles from 2000-02 and back-t0-back championships in 2009 and 2010. He’s currently engaged to Lakers Executive Vice President of Business Operations, Jeanie Buss.
John Salley was a member of the Lakers back in 2000, when Jackson invited him to join the team. While averaging just 6.7 minutes per game, Salley was a veteran leader in the locker room and was along for the ride as the team won the NBA championship. Since retiring from the league in 2000, Salley has done various sports shows and events and written about fine foods and wines. You can learn more about Salley on his personal website.
