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.

Not a Duke fan, but that was amusing. Now to share how I feel about Singler and Duke. I have a suggestion for a new one. How about a 360 dunk off the top of the building? That would be interesting.

To the previous three commentors, I'd like to pass along what I was taught.

If you can't say something positive, then keep your mouth shut!

They weren't even that good.  The kids on the internet have better shots than that. And I'm not just saying that because I hate Duke.  Anybody could make those shots.  The best one was the one over the tent just because he wasn't simply bouncing it off a point and couldn't see the hoop
