If you thought Marshawn Lynch's Skittles habit was crazy, wait until you hear about Michael Beasley's infatuation with the candy.
In an interview with the Arizona Republic, Beasley admitted that even though he's trying to cut back on Skittles, he still eats six or seven packs a day. That's about 1,380 calories and 258 grams of sugar from candy alone.
Asked if the team trainers and dietitians are OK with Beasley's love of the candy, he says he's stopped munching on Skittles at the arena.
"I just eat them at home and keep them to myself," he said. "My favorite pack is the wild berry -- the best, by far. I like to stick with the wild berry. The red pack is original so it's always going to be good, but that wild berry takes it to another level."
Amazingly, Beasley's love for the fruit-flavored candy might be topped by Derrick Rose's infatuation for Skittles. Rose, who was selected one pick ahead of Beasley in the 2008 NBA Draft, once had a custom-made Skittles vending machine in his house.
