Dillon Brooks, known for his polarizing on-court persona, recently admitted that his villainous image is strictly confined to the hardwood.

Following his impressive 39-point performance against Team USA in the FIBA World Cup bronze medal game, Brooks revealed that his villainous demeanor is part of his basketball character.

Four-time NBA champion Andre Iguodala shared his perspective on Brooks during an appearance on the Old Man & The Three podcast.

Iguodala expressed that players like Brooks, with a relentless and intense mentality, find success in the NBA due to their fearless approach.

“There’s certain guys in the NBA that wouldn’t be in the NBA if they didn’t have that crazy mentality… If Dillon Brooks wasn’t crazy, he wouldn’t be in the NBA,” Iguodala remarked.
