NEWS FLASH...........SINGLETON WAS EB'S BACK UP EVERY SINCE HE WAS THERE.. THE GUY ALWAYS PLAYED HARD AND GAVE IT HIS ALL.. DUMLEVY JUST DIDN'T LIKE HIM.. THE GUY WOULD HAVE ONLY MADE 770K AND TO HAVE A PLAYER WITH THAT KINDA TALENT FOR THAT LIL BIT OF MONEY AND NOT RESIGN HIM IS CRAZY.. NOW THE CLIPPERS HAVE TO GO OUT AND FIND A PLAYER TO BACK UP BRAND CAUSE AL THORNTON AND PAUL DAVIS ARENT GONNA CUT IT.. SINGLETON WAS MORE EXPERIENCED.. ITS FUNNY HOW ONE MINUTE ROSS AND SINGLETON WHERE THE TEAMS BEST DEFENDERS TO SINGLETON'S DEFENSE BEING SUB PAR.. LETTING SINGLETON GO WAS ONE OF THE BIGGEST MISTAKES THEY COULD HAVED MADE AND RIGHT NOW ITS GONNA SHOW.. EVERYONE WELL OF U KNO IT TOO.. SINGLETON WON'T RESIGN WITH THE CLIPPERS AND ITS ONLY THERE FAULT.. IF I WAS HIM I WOULDN'T Y PLAY FOR A COACH THAT DOESN'T WANT U THERE.. BUT I DO KNO WHERE HE IS WANTED..

CHECK OUT EURO BASKET AND LOOK WHO JUST SIGNED AT TAU...... "JUMPING" JAMES SINGLETON.... AND CHECK THIS.. THIS ONE SEASON HES GONNA SPEND WITH THEM HE'S GONNA MAKE MORE IN 1YR THEN HE DID BOTH YEARS WITH THE CLIPPERS... I JUST SEEN IT ON THE INTERNET TODAY... I'M HAPPY FOR HIM AND RIGHT NOW I'M FEELIN BAD FOR ONLY EB AND HIS TEAMMATES CAUSE THEY ALL WANTED HIM TO STAY THERE... LETS GO SINGLETON.. YOU STILL GOT A TRUE FAN HERE.... HOPE TO SEE U BACK N THE NBA NEXT YR..

Well I'm not sure if Al Thornton isn't going to "cut it", but I think he's certainly a better overall talent than James. But that really sux that James won't be coming back, but I'm happy to see him make more $ and he'll certainly be getting more playing time. I'll certainly be pulling for him as well- wouldn't be surprised if we get a Youtube video highlight of him now and then from Europe!

ok david what are think.. how could you even say that thornton is a better overall talent.. Your so lucky that singleton decided to go back overseas and play.. not sayin that al isn't a good talent but for u to say that he's a better overall talent.. LOL... wow..

kfld- you have to agree that Thornton is a MUCH better offensive player. James is more of a hustle guy, a Dennis Rodman-type player for the Clippers. Don't get me wrong I always wanted JSing to play more- we all did. But Al is in another league offensive-wise. Plus he can jump as high as James too. Experience-wise Singleton would have the edge, however.

There's no comparison boys...Thornton has a shot to be a star in this league...Singleton made his best moves in the Lay-up line...yeah it'd be sweet to have James right now, especially for how cheap he would come but Al has a chance to be special.

thornton just started scorin points his last 2ys n college.. singleton has be a 20pt 12rb player since high school.. anyone can shine if there givin the chance.. the kid adapts to his situation..u say theres no comparison.. and singletons best moves was n the lay up line.. u must have forgotten about the count espn clips he had his first yr.. dumlevy grounded him.. and he tired to do the same thing to corey and wilcox.. lets see the comparison durin the yr.. and trust me al wouldn't play as much if eb wasn't hurt.. singleton knew what time it was and thats y he wanted out..

lol..U must be a disgruntled cousin or something...he'll be nothing more than a cheerleader if he wants to be an NBA player...He better try to go get that 20 and 12 in Europe...he'd be lucky to get 20 min a game for an NBA team...Clips have alot bigger fish to fry that Singleton...here's a thought...Singleton trying to get a look from an NFL team...he'd be a nice receiver
