You win, Kyle Singler

The first iteration of Kyle Singler's trick-shot-making abilities came at the beginning of last season. It was an amazing video, but I took a few shots at Singler then because it seemed to be too inspired by Mark Titus, college basketball's originator of comedic trick-shot videos.

Turns out Singler's serious about his skills. He unleashed his Gets Buckets 2.0 video recently, and it's particularly ridiculous. This is now the standard-bearer for all trick-shot videos. And I say this as someone who's pretty sick of these things as it is. Teenagers across America are wasting their lives compiling hours upon hours of tape, afternoon after afternoon, in hopes to become the next one-day Internet sensation.

Put the iPhones and cameras down, kids. Singler just put you all to sleep. The pool shot is my favorite, even if the Chapel chuck makes the video.

the chapel shot from the roof is the most ridiculous shot on here, the rest are yawnable.  I love Duke, I love the campus and school, and Singler is fun to watch, but the "Buckets" title and lingo is juvenile, not to be a downer here, but you're at Duke, let's step up the lingo and intelligence here.  Besides that, I love Duke.

I bet it took hundreds of attempts per shot.  Notice in the diving board shot that he is already wet?  Still cool.

Anybody on here saying they edited out all the misses is making a totally asinine point.  Its like pointing out there is no Easter Bunny.  Hey guys, I'm pretty sure people understand that, but its still fun to watch!
