HoopsHype Chris Singleton rumors
Singleton defended so well against one of the draft class' best scorers, Jordan Hamilton of Texas, in the workout that he was ready to seek out established competition. Namely, Thornton - a top-notch scorer who is also from Florida State. "I'm from Atlanta, so I'm not scared of anybody. I'm going to bring that toughness to whatever team drafts me," he said. "I feel like I'm the modern-day Scottie Pippen. I feel like I can do it all: pass, shoot, dribble and play defense." San Francisco Chronicle

When asked if his game is reminiscent of any players, past or present, Singleton didn't hesitate. A grin crept across his face and he replied, "Just like I have been telling reporters and NBA teams, I feel like I'm the modern-day (Scottie) Pippen. I feel like I can do it all: pass, shoot, dribble, and play defense. I mean, I think I'm the perfect guy in any system you put me in and I'm just ready to take on the challenges." HoopsWorld

The last word comes from, let's say, a highly-confident Florida State forward Chris Singleton: "I've been telling everybody I'm a modern day Pippen. I feel I can do everything." Racine Journal-Times
Is Florida State’s top player making an early jump to the NBA? Forward Chris Singleton, who led the Seminoles in scoring (13.1) and rebounding (6.8) this season, is expected to announce his decision Wednesday at 3 p.m. ET on Ustream.com. But it seems FSU officials have jumped the gun. The school released an email to the media late Tuesday night regarding Singleton. The last paragraph states: "Singleton, who is going to finish the semester academically, will be only 24 credit hours shy of earning his degree in interdisciplinary social studies. He has committed to earning six of those hours in the first session of summer school and will begin his professional career well in reach of earning his degree. Singleton has plans to return to school -- and has promised his mother -- that he will earn his degree from Florida State." FOXSports Florida
