4-Time NBA Champ and former LA Laker John Salley joined Jay Mohr Sports in studio on Thursday and we discussed Kobe Bryant and Magic Johnson's issues with Lakers management.
Mohr: What if Kobe goes to Jim Buss and says 'Get Phil Jackson or I'm going to retire'?
Salley: The reason Kobe won't do it is because he's under contract. He'll only get half of his remaining deal that he signed. If he bounced, half of his contract goes back to their salary cap and they can now recruit, start off new and (Jim Buss) can explain to everybody that I run the squad...Inmates don't run the asylum.
Mohr: They let Kobe walk?
Salley: They let Kobe walk. They let Phil walk and he sleeps with the owner's daughter. This isn't do or die. It's business. Don't let business interfere with your emotions.
Mohr: No brainer move for the Knicks bringing in Phil Jackson?
Salley: If the Knicks get Phil, I would ask for a job. There is no way you're going to lose with Phil Jackson.
