(US) John Salley on veganism in the NBA
- Former Detroit Pistons big man John Salley has spent a lot of his
retirement advocating for veganism. He does so at a time when the
lifestyle’s gaining powerful advocates in Bill Clinton and Serena
Williams' veganism, in particular, intrigues me because of the sports
connection. If she continues to have well-publicized success, I wonder
if athletes in other sports will follow.
As such, I decided to ask the NBA's biggest vegan voice to weigh in on
whether this is the wave of the future in basketball and elsewhere.
Note: I am not a vegan (yet), and I do not know enough to explicitly
endorse John’s recommendations. I do, however, explicitly endorse the
idea that it’s enjoyable to take in John Salley’s pontifications.
Were you more aware of your mortality because a lot of taller guys
have health problems? Is that something you were aware of that led you
to these decisions?
