It was a crazy turn of events at this year NBA All Star Slam Dunk contest. The final round with the two remaining contestants turned into a repeat of the 2016 competition, and ironically enough, it involved Orlando Magic Aaron Gordon again. He found himself in another dunk-off scenario. Him and Derrick Jones Jr were going at it showing off impressive dunk after impressive dunk. Gordon racked up 5 straight 50 scores. However his efforts wasn’t enough to give him the edge. Despite the impressive dunks, he once lost lost by a close margin.
Fans immediately began to flood social with cries of Gordon being robbed of not only this years slam dunk contest, but also 2016 as well.Gordon himself even proclaimed that he should be a two time slam dunk contest. Apparently judge Dwayne Wade became the perfect scapegoat after giving Gordon the fatal 9 score which cost Gordon the points needed to win. Social media has been roasting Dwayne Wade, and it has been hilarious.
Aaron Gordon is done competing in the Dunk Contest.
“It’s a wrap bro. I feel like I should have two trophies.”
