PBT Extra: Fan vote picks Aaron Gordon to win Dunk Contest. As do we all.


Aaron Gordon should have won the All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest last year. Arguably. He and Zach LaVine put on a show for the ages.

This year LaVine is out, and Gordon comes in the heavy favorite to win the contest on Feb. 18 (next Saturday). We polled fan via Twitter for their predictions and 56 percent picked Gordon. That’s the logical call, this could be a coronation more than a contest, and I break down the vote in this latest PBT Extra.

Second in the fan voting was Derrick Jones Jr., who has played just 15 minutes this season and has never dunked in an NBA game, but has hops. Also, I think fans are sleeping on Glenn Robinson III — that guy can get up and throw down. He’s my dark horse.
