Earlier today, we poked a little fun at Chris Singleton's pink sneakers with an assist from Wizards point guard John Wall, who referred to them, slightly undiplomatically, as "cancer shoes." (Note: we don't think Wall meant to take the mickey out of cancer patients, but we can't help but think of Kevin Garnett's encounter with Charlie Villanueva from a couple seasons back.)
Anyway, Singleton got a bit of his own back in Sunday night's game against the NBA D-League Select team. Videois below the jump, so let's watch and enjoy, shall we?
Gotta love the commentator with the perfectly-timed "It must be the shoes!" And here's what our panel of experts thought.

Singleton put every ounce of frustration he's ever had into that flying jam over a D-Leaguer. Good god.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) July 16, 2012
No Tweet of mine can do that Singleton dunk justice. Also, I'm guy in yellowish shirt in the background holding my head, if it were on TV.— Kyle Weidie (@Truth_About_It) July 16, 2012
Of course, the Wizards wound up losing to the D-Leaguers, 85-78. But Chris, we apologize. You keep making plays like that, you can wear sneakers in whatever color you like.
