Duke fans will forever love Kyle Singler, at least, they should forever love Kyle Singler. The 6’8 forward from Oregon was the Final Four’s Most Valuable Player in the Blue Devil’s 2009-2010 championship season and he averaged 16.2 points and 6.9 rebounds per game over his four-year career. In case they needed a reminder of how awesome the guy is, though, the Detroit Pistons released a video of Singler making trick shots all around the city of Detroit:
Crazy stuff, right? My personal favorite is the football kick at Ford Field, but my jaw dropped on the final shot. And a second thing, I’m really in the wrong business. I like blogging and all, but professional athletes apparently just get to stroll into all the stadiums around their city and just hang out there. So, yeah, I’m going to go ahead and go do that now. See you guys later.
Quick update on Singler: the Detroit Pistons were 0-8 and looked completely hopeless before they inserted the Duke alum into the lineup. Since his insertion, the Pistons are 5-3 and are starting to look like a legitimate threat out in the Eastern Conference. Singler, a rookie, is thriving in Detroit, averaging 9.2 points and 3.2 rebounds per game, while averaging 25.5 minutes per game. Rookie of the year candidate? If he continues to rapidly improve, he will most definitely find himself in the running for the award.
