    NEW ORLEANS -- There's no silver medal in the slam-dunk contest, but Aaron Gordon deserved some shiny object for his participation in last year's faceoff with Zach LaVine, which, recency bias be damned, instantly entered the pantheon of the competition's 32-year run.

He had to settle for a 34 from the judges after missing all of his attempts for a two-round total of 72 and a quick trip to the showers. Robinson's second dunk, just a 360 windmill, was also a letdown

  • People are hyped that Kristaps Porzingis won the skills challenge
