As the NBA continues its Summer League in Las Vegas, Washington Wizards forward Chris Singleton decided to put an NBA D-Leaguer flat on his back with a thunderous jam.
Watch as Singleton skies to the rim and throws it down hard:
Since the name Chris Singleton may not be ringing any bells, let me remind you of his most notable exploit: Singleton once made waves in the blogosphere when he admitted to dropping 10 Gs on lottery tickets in an attempt to win the worldâs biggest jackpot.Â Other than that, the 22-year-old Wizard selected 18th overall in 2011 is yet to make much noiseâŚ but heâs got time,...
The Washington Wizards waived Andray Blatche on Tuesday, designating him as the team's amnesty player.
The 25-year-old forward averaged 9.9 points and 5.4 rebounds over seven seasons with the Wizards, who drafted him out of high school in the second round in 2005.

PatrickÂ Ewing, Georghe Muresan, Lenny Wilkens, and Teresa Edwards all assisted with the clinic which held five different stations for the children to learn the fundamentals of basketball.
Two of the veterans,...
Andray Blatche has $23 million remaining on his contract.
Washingtonâs recent efforts to trade to trade Andray Blatche were not successful, and on July 17, 2012 the Wizards were forced to amnesty their once-beloved power forward.
Washington Wizards fans should be excited about what the future holds.
It took the Washington Wizards one Summer League game to get into their groove. One night removed from being blown out of the Cox Pavilion gym by the Atlanta Hawks, the Wizards survived a furious 4th quarter comeback attempt by the Houston Rockets, winning their first game of the summer 76-70.
Top pick Bradley Beal lead the team with 14 points and was one of four Wizards to finish...
