Social Media Let The Judges Have It After The NBA's Dunk Contest


If you weren’t spending Valentine’s Day weekend being lovey dovey with someone special, you were probably glued to the TV watching all things All Star Weekend 2020.

The annual NBA weekend took place in Chicago this year and there were a lot of memorable moments, including the legendary All Star Saturday night where the iconic Slam Dunk Contest goes down.

This year - Dwight Howard, Aaron Gordon, Pat Connaughton and the Miami Heat’s very own, Derrick Jones Jr. competed in the famous competition. In the end, it came down to Gordon and Jones Jr. battling it out for the trophy. Dunk after dunk, the players wowed the crowed with their skills and athleticism.

But, it was Aaron Gordon dunking over 7-foot-5 Celtics player Tacko Fall, that fans felt earned him the win… Unless you were the judges (one of which being the Miami Heat legend himself, Dwyane Wade) who gave the honor to Derrick Jones Jr.

Well… Social media was calling foul play and even accused Wade of throwing the scoring to secure a W to a fellow Heat player.

To make things worse, this is the second year that people feel Aaron Gordon was robbed in the dunk contest, the first time being his 2016 appearance in the annual competition.
