Aaron Gordon claims Dwyane Wade likes his diss track for him
Orlando Magic power forward Aaron Gordon released a diss track titled “9 out of 10,” which was clearly directed at NBA legend Dwyane Wade. The title of the song was a reference to Wade’s score on AG in the final round of the 2020 Slam Dunk Contest, which prevented the prodigious dunker from taking the victory.
Gordon, however, has denied any beef with Wade. In fact, the Magic forward claimed he has already talked to the Miami Heat icon, whom he said liked his song.
“He said he liked my song, and I told him I liked his wine, and it’s really not that big of a deal,” Aaron Gordon told Josh Robbins of The Athletic
“It’s not that deep. It’s for fun. It’s for entertainment. It’s what the people wanted. I was just expressing another side of myself, showing people creativity, the talent, and keep people entertained and kind of light and something to take their minds off of the seriousness of the situation that’s going on around us.”
The former fourth-overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft out of Arizona, Gordon has been known to be a high-flying dunker who may have well had two Slam Dunk Contests robbed from him in just six years in the NBA.
Last February saw a pair of 50s handed to the Magic star and competitor Derrick Jones Jr., with another round handing Jones Jr. the victory — due in part to Wade’s “9” attached to Gordon’s last dunk. Jones plays for Wade’s former Heat squad.
Gordon also shared a photo on Instagram earlier this week denying any ill will towards Wade, hoisting up the Slam Dunk Contest judge’s own wine (which he held in the music video as well). On the other hand, Wade responded in kind and tweeted that the Magic big man should “trademark” the “9/10” referenced in the song and video.
