NBA fans will surely know the name John Salmons, who played opposite Derrick Rose for several seasons with the Chicago Bulls where he averaged 18 points a game. Salmons also played with the 76ers, Bucks, Kings and Raptors before finally wrapping up his pro career in 2015 with the Pelicans. He ranks in the top 10% of all time scorers in the history of the NBA and ABA, which is an extraordinary achievement unto itself.
Today, Salmons is the CEO of John Salmons Enterprise, which is a holding company for his diverse array of business interests that includes franchises, film development & production, fashion, real estate and angel investments, and several exploratory concepts in the comic book, entrepreneur and artist development space. He’s an outstanding example of a professional athlete who isn’t resting on the laurels of his athletic endeavors, and is instead thinking outside-the-box to facilitate longer-term prosperity in his life beyond.
