The dunk contest was once again spectacular with Derrick Jones Jr. and Aaron Gordon putting on a show for everyone watching. Even though both of them were phenomenal, fans and the player thought Gordon should have won, and the players themselves took to Twitter to stress out their disbelief.

After the Contest, Gordon spoke to the news reporters about his discontent with the way how it all ended. Gordon thought he was the clear winner, especially after the Contest he had against Zach LaVine when most of the media and fans thought he should have been the winner. Gordon also said this chapter in his career is over and that next time, he might consider participating in a three-point contest.

"It's a wrap, bro. It's a wrap. I feel like I should have two trophies. You know what I mean? So, it's over for that. My next goal is going to be trying to win the 3-Point Contest."

Gordon thinks there was something wrong with the way judges were giving out points because he scored five straight 50s and didn't win.

"We're here to do four dunks. So, out of four dunks, it should be the best of four dunks. I did five straight 50s. That's over. It's a wrap. Let's go home. Four 50s in an NBA Dunk Contest, it's over. But I don't know. Who's running the show?"

Despite the fact Gordon lost the Contest, he once again put on a show that will be remembered for years to come. Understandably, he feels disappointed even though for most fans out there, he is the unofficial winner.
