The NBA world is somewhat in shock after last night’s dunk contest that resulted in another loss by Aaron Gordon, who, according to many, put on a better performance than Derrick Jones Jr. After his legendary performance against Zach LaVine, where he should have also won, Gordon lost in another competition and will probably never participate.
Players around the league also shared their disbelief with the way the dunk contest was judged, many of them saying Gordon was a clear winner. There is a notion going around social media that Gordon was robbed of the title and that the contest is unfair.
