Dwyane Wade wants to clear air with Aaron Gordon over Dunk Contest?
Dwyane Wade was involved in one of the more infamous controversies in Slam Dunk Contest history during this year’s competition, and now he might be trying to hash things out with the man that he allegedly wronged.
Speaking Sunday during an Instagram Live broadcast on the official NBA channel, the retired 13-time All-Star said that he was trying to get Orlando Magic star Aaron Gordon on the platform to discuss the Dunk Contest.

In a saga that has since launched a thousand memes, Gordon narrowly lost the competition to Wade’s former Miami Heat teammate Derrick Jones Jr despite putting on one of the most impressive performances of all-time. Wade was a judge and notoriously gave Gordon a “9” on his final dunk but a “10” to that of Jones Jr. Other judges admitted that the plan was to end it in a tie but agreed that someone messed up with the scoring.
Gordon said after the contest that he felt like he should have “two trophies,” referencing his other dubious loss to Zach LaVine in the 2016 competition. Now this may be his opportunity to air out his grievances with Wade.
