The 2016 Slam Dunk Competition for the NBA will perhaps be the launching ground for Orlando Magic forward Aaron Gordon and Minnesota Timberwolves guard Zach LaVine as future stars in the NBA. The two players traded dunks with style and flash that will have everyone talking about their duel for years to come.
Apparently Gordon isn’t finished showing us what he has. Against the Philadelphia 76ers, Gordon comes down the court and receives a lob pass from Elfrid Payton with his left hand and dunks it home. Although it appears that it would be an awkward play at first, Gordon is one of those rare athletes who can make awkward look easy and hard look possible.
Check out Gordon’s left hand alley-oop dunk below.
