Tacko Fall says helping Aaron Gordon in dunk contest was not planned
Tacko Fall was a part of Aaron Gordon’s final dunk in the Dunk Contest on Saturday night in Chicago, but the big man says that was an impromptu move.
Before Gordon attempted his last dunk, where he needed to top Derrick Jones Jr.’s 48 to win the contest, the Orlando Magic star went towards the crowd for Fall. Tacko didn’t seem to know what was coming, but nevertheless obliged.
Gordon then tried to jump over the 7-foot-5 Boston Celtics big man for the dunk and did so successfully.

What’s crazy is that Fall said to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne that joining Gordon was unplanned.

Gordon needed to break out all the stops on that one and did. It’s too bad for him that the judges robbed him.
