It’s been a while since we updated our “Hey man nice shot” category here in All Ball-land, but we think this one makes it worth it. Rookie Kyle Singler of the Pistons has become a solid contributor for Detroit, starting in his last six games and is averaging 11.3 ppg, 2.7 rpg and shooting 38.5 percent from 3-point range in that role. That 3-point percentage is nothing to sneeze at as it puts him ahead of other well-known outside shooters such as Jason Terry, Mike Miller, Kobe Bryant and Jamal Crawford this season.
But just think how high his 3-point shooting could be if he were allowed to … oh, I don’t know … drop-kick the ball and bank it off the glass for a 3-pointer? OK, maybe that wouldn’t help his shooting percentage, but it would sure be cool to watch. Check out this great video from the fine folks over at Pistons.com as Mr. Singler takes to Detroit to punt, kick and bounce in some of the most creative shots we’ve ever seen.
