On Thursday night, the Denver Nuggets beat the Los Angeles Clippers on the road 101 to 94. They improved their record to 30-18, while the Clippers fell to 32-18. Jamal Murray led all Nuggets in scoring with 23 points and added eight rebounds and two assists.
After the game, the TNT panel elected to interview newest Nugget Aaron Gordon after finished with 14 points, six rebounds, and six assists.
When it was time to for Dwyane Wade to ask his question the only thing he wanted to know was why Gordon selected the number 50 for his jersey number.
” It spoke to me man. I got the most 50s ever in the dunk contest. It’s a good number for me man, I feel like it’s strong, it’s powerful and it spoke to me man. I’m rocking with it,” said Gordon.
Wade replied, “It looks good on you.”
Gordon was a participant in the 2020 Slam Dunk Contest in Chicago if you are late to the party. Many individuals believe Wade is why Gordon did not come out victorious because of his ties to the Miami Heat organization. The award was ultimately awarded to former Heat former Derrick Jones Jr.
Sometime after the contest, Gordon released a diss track called “9 OUT OF 10.” Some of the song lyrics went as followed: ” Used to hoop in your condo so comfortably
Knew one day I’d be good and you’d come for me
Didn’t know it would make me this hungry
Lookin’ at your judgment and everyone’s wondering
Ride the heat, the Windy City, did you see the damn coat?
Saw you in the hallway, you said, “Youngin, put on a show”
Didn’t know that’s the code for “You’re about to get rolled.”
Last week, Gordon shared with Katy Winge of Altitude TV that he selected 50 because of his dunk results and that he did not win. This issue also refers to his documentary ‘Mr.50′.
