John Salley Speaker

Former Detroit Pistons‘ star, John Salley delivered a message at Fox Valley Technical College on Thursday night as part of FVTC’s 2012-13 Speaker Series. Salley told the audience that they’ve got to get out and experience life and not to allow people to tell you that you can’t do something.

He remarked, “Happiness is a choice. This is the only life you have. I’m from the project on the east side of Brooklyn. Most of my friends got murdered before I was 25. Adversity and bad things. I’ve seen them,” adding, “It didn’t stop me from being happy. That was that. This is this. Everything is black and white, night and day, good and bad, ugly and not ugly, fat, thin, sexy, unsexy. I’m on the sexy side. I just know there’s a counter to everything. God needs a devil. I’d rather be on God’s side. It’s a positive thought.”

Salley was told he was “too tall” to be an actor, but since retiring from the NBA in 2000 he’s been in 14 movies and 16 sitcoms, has hosted “Basketball Wives,” “The Best Damn Sports Show Period,” “The Car Show” and his own talk show “Game On.”
