Aaron Gordon Is the Picasso of the Slam Dunk Contest

And he sees himself as this generation's dunking Picasso, but he also knows he'll never be in the conversation for what he secretly craves—the title of Greatest Dunker of All Time—until he wins the NBA's Slam Dunk Contest. So, once again, he's back this weekend in New Orleans, this time as the favorite.
