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?

It isn't any of my business how people spend their money, but when I hear sh!t like that it makes my blood boil. If you're going to waste your money, give it to someone that needs it!

Just once I'd like to hear a young millionaire say that he blew through his $$ giving to the local homeless shelter or boys and girls club.

Same old Chris that I went to high school with. Considering where he came from you think he would be smart with his money and not blow it on stupid $h!t. But hey whatever floats your boat!

Can't win if you don't play! I've blown $1000 bucks in Vegas before, and I don't have no $7 million, so I can't judge :)

But if you blow it in the clubs, at least you get some stanky for your hangdown.

I'm not sure a financial advisor is a good idea as we keep hearing about them screwing their rich clients over and sending them to the poor house with IRS back taxes and/or liens.
