The slam dunk contest was epic in 2016. For years the slam dunk contest struggled with the platform and contestants. However, the young athletic NBA players have surged the weekend event. Last year we saw Zach LaVine win, but some say it should have went to Aaron Gordon when he jumped over mascot and put ball under his legs. 2017 NBA Slam Dunk will be the chance for Aaron Gordon to get his revenge, and stop Zach LaVine from getting 3 slam dunk championships in a row.
