Video: Aaron Gordon pulls off Jordan Bell-esque dunk with pass to himself off backboard

Aaron Gordon

We have a serious philosophical issue to discuss today: does life imitate NBA 2K18 or does NBA 2K18 imitate life?

We asked because Orlando Magic forward Aaron Gordon pulled off yet another off-the-backboard slam tonight against the Brooklyn Nets. Watch how Gordon embarrassed Nets forward Quincy Acy and book a spot on several highlight reels in just one play below.

This was the second time Gordon did it this season. During the Magic’s season opener against the Miami Heat, Gordon ran a fast break and ended it with an authoritative homage to Magic legend, Tracy McGrady.

And just yesterday, Golden State Warriors rookie Jordan Bell also made his own version of the self-assisted dunk during a blowout win over the Dallas Mavericks that elicited funny reactions from Steph Curry and Kevin Durant.

We don’t know if Gordon and Bell have a running bet on which among them will have the most insane dunks this season, but maybe this is just a Pac-12 thing.
