Nilundag ni Aaron Gordon si 7-foot-5 Tacko Fall sa final dunk-off, nakakuha ng 47 points sa judges at natalo kay Derrick Jones Jr. na naka-48 sa Dunk Contest ng NBA All-Star nitong Sabado sa Chicago.
Pakiramdam ni Gordon, dalawang beses na siyang ninakawan ng dunk title – una noong 2016 laban kay Zach LaVine.
“Jumping over somebody 7’5” (without shoes) and dunking is no easy feat,” himutok ni Gordon. “What did I get, like a 47? Come on, man. What are we doing?”
Binak-apan siya ng kapwa NBA players sa Twitter.
LeBron James: “2 (trophies) should have been rewarded tonight that’s for damn sure!! Keep it a buck y’all!! Them boys both put on a show! Professional dunkers.”
Joel Embiid: “AG got robbed again.”
Ja Morant: “Judges are wilding.”
Si Karl-Anthony Towns, nag-tweet ng face mask na pang-robbery suspect.
May nag-tweet din na walang title si Gordon pero nakuha ang simpatiya ng mga tao, sumagot si Nikola Vucevic: “That’s worth nothing when you get robbed twice.”
Evan Fournier: “I feel sick for AG man. You’re the people’s champ, bro.”
Mario Hezonja: “Okay this is now embarrassing! Twice!!!”
