Like many Americans, Washington Wizards rookie Chris Singleton wanted to win last week's Mega Millions lottery jackpot, a mammoth windfall estimated at a record $500 million. I mean, according to his Twitter account, he really wanted to win. Like, "willing to drop $10,000 on tickets to improve his chances" wanted to win.
Singleton told his followers late Sunday that he did win some money. Like all but (reportedly) three other Americans, though, he was unsuccessful in his quest for the Mega Millions jackpot, despite his sizable outlay. While the Florida State product is likely disappointed at coming up short in the drawing, he surely remains "dedicated to making more money," a dogged pursuit of "that Bill Gates bread" that Wizards fans hope inspires Singleton to great on-court production in the years ahead.
