New Washington Wizards draft pick Chris Singleton already endeared himself to the masses by declaring that his form of celebrating being drafted was marking down all the teams that passed on him and "cussing them out." He will endear himself to fans even more because of this: apparently Singleton has launched his own clothing line, along with a few friends.
The clothing line is called Doughpe Clothing Company (pronounced "DOPE," because, of course), and while the web site is down as of now, the company still has a Tumblr account here. The clothes are apparently marketed for the "skater culture," and the first shirt featured the meme-worthy phrase "Cool Story, Bro" on the front, as you see here. Singleton is listed as being the "Head of Marketing," and below the jump is his biography.
Cool story, bro. And I mean that literally, not in the sarcastic sort of way the phrase is often used.
