Remember that high schooler who went viral for flipping a water bottle? Well, Heat center Hassan Whiteside just took his title of bottle-flipping champion and punted him into irrelevance.

Whiteside, who signed a four-year $98 million deal last week to stay in Miami, got super-bored on Sunday night. So, he decided to go on Snapchat and flip a Gatorade bottle, and a water bottle, to prove to the world that he is more than just a shot-blocker.

Whiteside pulled off a couple of these without even looking! That water bottle flip kid used both of his eyes.

We can only hope Whiteside’s 2016-17 season is half as impressive as that was.

Pull up on a kid.
