2016 NBA All Star Dunk Contest – The 2016 NBA All-Star Slam Dunk contest held on Saturday night Air Canada Centre in Toronto, and it was a dunk contest like no other.
After making slight work of qualifying for the Championship Round, the Minnesota Timberwolves’ Zach Lavine and the Orlando Magic’s Aaron Gordon faced off in the Championship round.
3 rounds of jaw-breaking dunks were needed to decide it winner, and it was 2014 winner LaVine who emerged victorious.
Twitter wasn’t too happy about it though, with many believing Gordon deserved the award more.
I mean look at this form. Over a mascot lounging in mid air… So robbed. Gordon is the real champ. https://t.co/MROffr7ym3
