Aaron Gordon is one of the best dunkers the NBA has ever seen. However, when it comes to the Dunk Contest, he simply doesn't get the respect he deserves. This much was evident when he was robbed yet again after an incredible dunk over Tacko Fall Saturday night. A new angle has emerged of the dunk, thanks to Rachel Nichols, and it is simply astounding to look at.
Unbelievable. There is no way that Derrick Jones Jr. should have won the contest. As good as he was, Aaron Gordon literally cleared a 7-5 behemoth. I am honestly not sure how that could lose.
As it turns out, the round was actually supposed to end up as a tie, so that there would be a second round of dunks. However, one of the judges on the panel went "rogue," causing Gordon to have one fewer point that Jones Jr.
Looks like Dwyane Wade is as sneaky now as he was on the ball court. Congratulations to Jones Jr. on the win, but the win should have gone to Gordon.
