Aaron Gordon does two of best dunks in slam dunk contest history (Videos)

Zach LaVine took home the trophy as winner of the 2016 NBA Slam Dunk Contest. However, it was runner-up Aaron Gordon who had what many will say was the best slam of the night.

With some assistance from a mascot holding the basketball over his head, Gordon did a dunk that you have to see to believe. And, if you did already see it, it’s one that’s definitely worth watching a few more times because it was that spectacular.

Even Shaq, who awarded a nine on a couple of dunks his fellow judges felt were worthy of a ten, had no choice but to give Gordon a perfect score for his effort. I mean, how could you not?

In addition to that one, Gordon also grabbed a ball from the same mascot spinning on a hoverboard and did this.

Wow, on both accounts.

Gordon didn’t win the competition, but he absolutely deserved to at least share it. LaVine said so afterward and I don’t think he would get many arguments from anyone who watched.

Gordon is in his second season in the NBA and came into Saturday as a relative unknown to many outside of Orlando. That won’t be the case anymore.
