Saturday night’s NBA slam dunk contest ended in controversial fashion when Miami Heat’s Derrick Jones Jr. edged out Aaron Gordon during an epic final round.
Despite the fact that Gordon was able to dunk over Tacko Fall in his final dunk he was only given a score of 47 which was one short of Jones Jr.
According to dunk contest judge “Common” the judges had agreed to even up the tally of 48 to have the contest go to a judges choice but one of the judges went rogue.
Just by looking at the reactions from the judges after the final score was shown you could tell it was Dwyane Wade who rigged the contest for his Miami Heat brethren.
In the end it doesn’t really matter who won because Saturday night’s dunk contest will always be remembered as one of the greatest dunk contests of all-time.
