Aaron Gordon got robbed.
At the conclusion of the best NBA All-Star Saturday night Dunk Contest in years, Orlando’s Aaron Gordon jumped over 7’5″ — without shoes — Tacko Fall, and still got a 47 score that cost him the contest to Derrick Jones Jr.
“Jumping over somebody 7’5″ [note: without shoes] and dunking is no easy feat,” Gordon said, stating the obvious. “What did I get, like a 47? Come on, man. What are we doing?”
Gordon’s fellow NBA players have his back.

There was one dissenter: Andre Iguodala thinks the judges got it right.
The right guy won…. Kenny wasn’t behind the judges table….
