Aaron Gordon has performed in two slam dunk contests and in both of them, it could be argued that he was robbed. First, it was against Zach LaVine back in 2016 and then this year against Derrick Jones Jr. but this one stings a little more.
The dunk contest ended up going to a 'dunk-off' in which Jones and Gordon had to improvise dunks that they had not rehearsed. Gordon dunked over 7'6" Tacko Fall and ended up getting a 47 from the judges. D-Wade, a judge, ended up giving a score of nine on the dunk and Gordon ended up losing by one.
It was later found out that the contest was supposed to end in a tie and one of the judges, hip-hop artist Common, said, "But somebody didn't do it right."
That was back in February and Gordon hasn't forgotten about it. He released a diss track, '9 OUT OF 10' in which he called out the former Heat superstar.
It didn't stop there though. D-Wade responded on Twitter to the video.
So there's beef now, right? After Gordon's appearance on Sportscenter Tuesday, it would appear not.
"Me and D-Wade, we talked a little bit about it -- he told me he liked the song; I told him I liked his wine. So everything's good."
