NBA Star Chris Singleton

I Blew $10k on Lotto Tix

... Because I Can

Washington Wizards rookie Chris Singleton says he doesn't care that he wasted $10,000 on Mega Millions tickets last week ... 'cause he would've blown the cash in the nightclubs anyway.

The 22-year-old baller -- who recently signed a $7 million contract -- tweeted before he chased the $640 million jackpot last week, “I’m about to drop 10,000 on the lottery and cross my fingers.”

Obviously, Chris lost his ass ... but justified the loss in a statement to the Associated Press this week ... saying it was “either that or blowing it in the clubs.”

Maybe his next investment should be a financial adviser?

Guess this mentality is how a lot of athletes end up bankrupt with no $$ left...they need to be smart with the years they are blessed to keep playing instead of just blowing it and then crying later because they are broke!

If you have nothing intelligent to say just be quiet. How long would you be silent if that was the case?

You're a loser for not winning the lotto but for also tweeting and doing the things that a female acting guy would do!

Until you personally know him, you should keep your mouth shut. I was once his substitute teacher for 6 weeks and he is a smart, nice, WONDERFUL bball player. AND his mother is a wonderful lady, who is a RN at the hospital. IF he wants to blow his money, then so be it. After all it is HIS money.

Okay any players from the Washington Wizards should not be interviewed by the media! First and foremost no one knows who they r and second if they r not smart enough to play basketball correctly, then u know they r not smart enough to say anything worth writing about!
