Coming in second place never felt so good. The Orlando Magic’s Aaron Gordon has deservedly gotten a boost in reputation after a dunk contest for the ages and his insane high-flying slams are now translating in-game too. Gordon recently put on an acrobatic display against the lowly Philadelphia 76ers with one minor mishap – his Nike Hyperrev 2016s fell apart as a result. Perhaps the model couldn’t withstand the altitude. Check out a few photos of his destroyed kicks and watch a video of the dunk that could’ve done it below.
