Despite the fact that it was the Minnesota Timberwolves' Zach LaVine who took home the trophy (for the second year in a row) as tonight's NBA slam dunk champion, the Orlando Magic's Aaron Gordon proved that he was totally worthy of the award when he did a lot of jaw-dropping dunks as well—including the one above (and in the video below) showing him effortlessly leaping over Stuff the Magic Dragon, Orlando's team mascot.

In related news, tomorrow will be Kobe Bryant's final appearance in the NBA All-Star Game before he retires in less than three months. It would be terrific if he took home the All-Star MVP trophy on Sunday evening... Even non-Lakers fans should agree about this.
