You really thought Aaron Gordon was just about to let it go after Dwyane Wade supposedly cost him the Slam Dunk Contest trophy?

After pulling off another another all-time great dunk, clearing rookie Tacko Fall, and still losing to Wade's former Miami Heat teammate Derrick Jones, Jr. during NBA All-Star 2020, the Orlando Magic forward said "it's a wrap" for him in the competition: "I feel like I should have two trophies. So it's over for that."

Gordon, who also finished as runner-up to two-time dunk champ Zach LaVine in 2016, explained, "Tallest dude in the gym. Jumping over somebody 7-5 and dunking it, it’s no easy feat. What’d I get, a 47? Come on, man. What are we doing?"

Apparently, those comments were just the beginning. On Monday, the 2014 No. 4 pick dropped the song "9 OUT OF 10" complete with music video on YouTube.

Check it out and judge for yourself:

We're pretty sure that Gordon was referring to the retired superstar when he wrote the following lyrics: "Saw you in the hallway, you say 'Youngin, put on a show.' Didn't know that's the code for you about to get rolled."


Aside from the obvious score-themed title, the diss track produced by Audio Anthem & Ayo & Keyz also had all sorts of Wade references — like his wine label — and Heat wordplay. More importantly, it confirmed that the dunk contest in Chicago (Flash's hometown, of all places) was indeed the high-flying forward's last one.

The three-time NBA champion had the perfect response to "9 OUT OF 10":


In the end, Gordon shrugged off the idea of a rap beef with an NBA legend a la Dame D.O.L.L.A versus Diesel, writing on Instagram, "I ain't that deep, though LOL."

Too bad; a hip-hop battle is one thing that he can win against Wade.
