Orlando Magic Rumors
He attempted to innovate again Saturday, beginning with the drone dunk. “I had two drone dunks,” Gordon said. “That was just supposed to be the one that was just going to get me going. I like to do creative things. I like to do over-the-top things. I guess I did a little too much.” Gordon was asked to describe the second drone dunk he had planned. He declined to do so. He said he might save it for a future competition. “This is very disappointing,” Gordon said.
Aaron Gordon stopped short of guaranteeing a win for himself. “I’m going to make all my dunks. Whatever happens after that is out of my control,” Gordon said. “People are going to have to do something pretty special. To me, that’s just as exciting as participating, watching the other guys to see what they’re going to do. (Robinson) is a really cool guy, very athletic. I like how his game is coming along.
Glenn Robinson III predicted a win over competitors Aaron Gordon (Magic), DeAndre Jordan (Clippers) and Derrick Jones Jr. (Suns) ahead of Saturday’s event in New Orleans (8 p.m., TNT). “You’ll see (Saturday) night,” Robinson said Friday. “That’s what we came here for, right? Came here to win.”
