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.
