A lot of NBA fans were in an uproar when Aaron Gordon came second to Zach LaVine in the NBA Dunk Contest. One fan, in particular, Ellen DeGeneres.
In fact, DeGeneres decided to even bring the Orlando Magic forward on her show Thursday to let him showcase his signature dunking skills. And even though Stuff the Magic Dragon wasn’t there to play a supporting role Gordon got help from Ellen DeGeneres, herself, and one of the producers (who feared for his life).
After all the fun and games, Gordon still hasn’t decided if he will bring his moves back next year to take a shot at avenging his controversial loss.
But, at least he got his very own Ellen trophy!
