Aaron Gordon wasn’t able to win the NBA dunk contest with some of the best dunks in contest history but he now has something Michael Jordan, JR Rider, Vince Carter, Jason Richardson and Zach LaVine don’t have: a slam dunk trophy from The Ellen Show!
A very comfortable in front of the camera Gordon stopped by The Ellen Show to show off how easy it is for him to dunk while wearing casual clothes and “not stretching doe.” After throwing down a couple of warm-up dunks, he dunked over Ellen’s scared-to-death producer – since 5’7 Ellen was too scared to let Gordon jump over her – and was rewarded with the tiniest basketball trophy he’s probably ever won.
It’s pretty awesome to see all the attention and opportunities Gordon is getting after his epic dunk contest performance but I bet Ellen wouldn’t have invited him if she knew he used to abuse children.
