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.

But those shots were FRICKIN RIDIC!  The trolls on this board who think otherwise either think they're faked (possible, but unlikely) or they've never, ever, ever, done more than played horse with an 9ft. high bent basket.  This sequence is totally outrageous.
Anybody could make those shots if they attempted each one numerous times. I am sure the edited out the scores of misses he had.

this takes a lot of patience, time, a camera and editing. I'm never impressed with these, I mean. Guard Derrick Rose and then lets talk

I hate Duke; have long rooted hard against Singler.  But those shots were FRICKIN RIDIC!  The trolls on this board who think otherwise either think they're faked (possible, but unlikely) or they've never, ever, ever, done more than played horse with an 9ft. high bent basket.  This sequence is totally outrageous.

 I am not a big college BB fan, and for that matter since the NBA stole the Sonics from Seattle I dont even watch Pro BB at all. But any one knows if you go to Duke, Kentucky, Oklahoma, ect. You are good. These negative trolls below are just haters who have nothing better to do. That was surely worth the 2:14 of my life I but into it. Thank you CBS Sports.com for posting it.

@ blarkin007-

You are absolutely right, I could never make a shot off of Duke Chapel, in large part because no one will let me up there to make a video ad for Duke University by dropping a ball off the roof.  These are all impressive shots, but they are more a test of patience and determination than they are a test of skill.  Anyone with the ability to actually throw a ball and the opportunity to throw it off a 210 foot tower will eventually make that shot.
