Who needs Dominique vs. Jordan?

This year’s NBA Dunk Contest between Timberwolves’ Zach LaVine and Magic’s Aaron Gordon was a duel for the ages as the two went dunk after dunk, 50 after 50, until finally LaVine was crowned the winner for the second straight year.

LaVine sealed the deal with a dunk through the legs from the free throw line, but Gordon had possibly the dunk of the night.

Gordon had the Magic mascot stand under the basket holding the ball as he jumped completely over him and completing the dunk.

Dominique Wilkins even gave this year’s contest his blessings, tweeting, “The dunk contest is back!!!”
