Aaron Gordon isn't sure if he'll participate in the 2017 Slam Dunk Contest.
Gordon and Zach LaVine had one of the better showdowns in recent memory this past season.
“Yeah, that was incredible," said Gordon about last year's competition. "As a little kid, I’ve always wanted to be part of a dunk contest, and of course I’ve always wanted to be in the NBA dunk contest. I got that opportunity and I did the best that I could. To me, that was all of the validation that I needed. I set out to achieve a goal and I executed it. After that, people were saying that I’m one of the best dunkers in the NBA. For me, that was amazing and all I needed. I wanted people to see what I saw and, you know, they did. They saw the creativity, the innovation, the joy and how much I love the game come out through my dunks.”
Gordon would presumably be invited back if he's interested.
“I’m not 100 percent sure. I kind of gave a lot in this last one and to be more creative would be difficult. I think I could do it, but I’m not sure if I’m going to.”
