For the second-straight year Zach LaVine of the Minnesota Timberwolves wins the NBA All-Star Dunk Contest. Orlando’s Aaron Gordon game LaVine a run for his money, but LaVine’s dunks were too much.

Here are all of LaVine’s four dunks.

Here are some of Gordon’s best dunks…

LaVine’s teammates, Karl Towns and Andrew Wiggins, loved what they saw along with DeMarcus Cousins.

 

Hopefully we will see a former Kentucky player in there soon.

    Gordon may be a freak but he stinks at basketball.Most people think this all-star weekend crap is old. Make it fun and have a free throw shooting contest. Could have A. Gordon, B. Griffin, D. Jordan, D. Howard, A. Drummond, J. Noah and even bring back old timers like Shaq. Now that would be entertaining and comedy.

    To me the best NBA slam dunk contest ever. Both heads were on the rim the entire time. Lots of Gordon’s dunks had an extra difficulty of grabbing the ball with a single hand instead of 2. Not sure they got the winner right but both were amazing. Whoever wants to go against either of those 2 in the contest next year has some over the top confidence.

    Gordon got hosed. His dunks were all harder and prettier. Lavine benefitted from a broken judging system where everybody gets 50s just for making the basket. Gordon should have one with the first dunk where he jumped over the mascot and took the ball under his thighs. But because they wanted to see more dunks, they just passed out 50s to both of them to go into the breaker rounds and lavine won with an unimpressive not even free throw line dunk… Puhlease…

    I agree Gordon got hosed. One thing they didn,t talk about on that last dunk over the mascot was, he did it LEFT HANDED! First one was Rightie! Both were excellent, but Gordon was better!
