Latest Chris Singleton Items
The team looks different, clad in their brand new red, white and blue uniforms. The season will be different, with a lockout-shortened 66-game schedule as opposed to 82.
Shelvin Mack never doubted there would an NBA season. The unfailingly positive Wizards rookie guard posted "think positive" on his Twitter account on a regular basis. Mack can't wait to get to work with John Wall and bring home his first paycheck.
The eyes are a little more intense than they were last season, as though living through the uncertainty of the NBA lockout made him grow up just a little bit faster. John Wall would be the first to agree.
It was Day 149 of the NBA lockout, and the latest negotiation session was heading into its 15th hour. Wizards free agent Maurice Evans, vice president of the players trade association, was feeling a wide range of emotions.

I'm back in school at Florida State after doing a lot of traveling the past couple of weeks. And trying to make some money. I had a chance to play in the Jimmer [Fredette] all-star game in Utah. I was glad to be invited to play. There were a lot of skilled, talented players in that game. It was good to be there with everybody.
I'm hanging out in D.C. right now, getting in some workouts. Dray [Andray Blatche] gave me a call and I came to town so we can all work out together. So far, it's going good.
