NBA All-Star Weekend was a huge hit, but there was some controversy that struck the NBA Dunk Contest. Aaron Gordon had another otherworldly performance but still lost to high-jumper Derrick Jones Jr. Gordon threw down some of the most impressive dunks ever seen, including a leap over 7-foot-5-inch center Tacko Fall, and many feel that he got robbed of the title yet again. However, Jones had incredible dunks that were deserving of the win. Who should've been crowned champ? 🏀

How can you have two of the best contest dunks ever and not get a trophy? There is some sort of conspiracy against Aaron Gordon, and it's a shame that this is the second straight year he's been robbed.

Gordon jumped over a 7-foot-5-inch man. SEVEN. FIVE.

Gordon deserved the win.

There is no doubt Aaron Gordon had some nice dunks. He's just unlucky that Derrick Jones Jr.'s were better.

Jones deserved every score he got with some amazing dunks. Gordon ran out of ideas and tried to jump over Tacko Fall. While he did get over the big man, he didn't clear Fall cleanly, which was the source of Gordon's lower score.

It's unfortunate that Gordon couldn't get a trophy, but Derrick Jones Jr. deserved it.
