Aaron Gordon is one of the best dunkers in the NBA. But Miami Heat swingman Josh Richardson put Gordon on the other end of a monster dunk on Tuesday.
Richardson drove the lane on and give-and-go. He received the pass in stride and went up for a jam. Gordon tried to challenge the dunk, but it didn’t go so well.
The fact that someone with Gordon’s vertical leap was challenging Richardson only makes the dunk more impressive. It’s hard to imagine that Richardson would have executed this dunk any better if he was unopposed.
Gordon challenged Richardson to put him on a poster. Richardson answered. Now we wait to see if Gordon has an answer.
