Pistons’ Saddiq Bey Explains His Dyed Green Hair After Dropping 50 Points

Detroit Pistons forward Saddiq Bey looked very serious after scoring a career-high 51 points.

Why so serious you ask? I think you get where this is going.

Bey, one of the more promising young sharpshooters in the league, went off against the Magic on Thursday. He scored 50 points for a career-best performance, which included ten 3-pointers, he also came with a career-best quote.

After the game, the former Villanova standout was hit with an odd question.

Bey was asked where his “villain mentality” comes from. The 6-foot-7 forward had an excellent answer ready to go.

Bey said that he actually derives his villain mentality from loving The Joker.

Via HoopsHype:

“I actually used to listen to The Joker soundtrack. It’s crazy to say but I did. He is my favorite character in the Batman universe. If you listen to it when you watch the movie, you’ll hear little things that capture the moment. That helps set the mood for how I’m going to play on the court. I can’t explain it because it’s just so personal to me.”

Bey is averaging 16.3 points per game for the Pistons and he has started all 70 games of the season.

These NBA guys are making 50 points look to easy as of late…
