Months after being robbed in the NBA Dunk Contest, Aaron Gordon makes a diss track to call out Dwayne Wade called ‘9 out of 10’.
It’s been months since the 2020 NBA Dunk Contest happened, and former Wildcat Aaron Gordon still seems unhappy about the controversial ending to the annual event.
So unhappy, that Gordon created a song entitled ‘9 out of 10’ (referencing Dwayne Wade’s 9/10 vote), where he calls out Wade for the controversial vote that helped Miami’s Derrick Jones, Jr. win.

For the record, this seems to be the second dunk contest Aaron lost, with perhaps some questionable voting.
To recap these are dunks that Aaron performed at the 2020 contest:
- Dunked over Chance the Rapper, not once, but twice
- He threw down a 360-degree, between-the-leg slam… then his face off with Jones began.
- A 360 off the side of the backboard
- Gordon would end on a dunk where he jumped over Tacko Fall, the tallest player in the NBA, standing at 7-feet-6-inches.
Apparently, even with all that, Gordon it still wasn’t good enough in the eyes of the judges, as he once again came in second place. At least not without a little bit of controversy.
According to hip-hop artist Common, who was a judge told ESPN and Ramona Shelburne, that the contest was designed to end in a tie, “But somebody didn’t do it [vote] right.”
Even though Aaron has vowed he is over the results and also said he won’t participate again, the former Arizona Basketball star is creating more attention to the matter as he recently released a song/ music video in which he calls out Wade for his vote.
Making references to losing out on a million dollars, and also drinking Wade’s Wine Label, Gordon goes on to rap in the track “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. Even Adam Silver told me I deserve the gold.”
Wade responded by telling Aaron to trademark ‘9 out of 10’ to make money off of it, since he apparently costed Gordon a million.
Here’s the video in case you were interested (*warning, there is some language in the song).
I will say I am intrigued that Aaron decided to release a song, but if I’m being honest, I feel like maybe he should stick to basketball. Anyways, what are you thoughts on the video? Let us know!
