After the great
anticipation created because of the 2016 Slam Dunk
Contest Aaron Gordon arrived to New Orleans like clear
favorite, but he had a disappointing performance and barely managed to
dunk in first round.
Youngsters Glenn Robinson III and Derrick Jones Jr
took over with some good slam dunks (both players had two 50s) and the
Pacers forward win the contest because Derrick Jones Jr missed his first
dunk in the final round.

The NBA Slam Dunk Contest repeats with a 4-contestants format.
There will be two dunks in the first round for each player. The two
dunkers with the highest composite scores from the first round advance
to the final round to make two more dunks.
Zach Lavine won't be back for a threepeat, and Aaron Gordon is a
big favorite to win a trophy that he probably deserved
last year in Toronto.
These are the Slam
Dunk Contest judges: Dominique Wilkins, Gary Payton, David Robinson,
Chris Webber and Alonzo Mourning.
