The NBA season is currently on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but that doesn't mean the basketball world has stopped. As a matter of fact, players are showing some of their alternative talents to keep their fans engaged and entertained.
That's exactly what happened with Orlando Magic's Aaron Gordon, who made the most of his spare time to release a diss track for Dwyane Wade about his infamous 9/10 in the Slam Dunk contest.
Gordon took it lightly and recreated a bit of a parody with Wade's taste for wine and the glasses he wore during the contest, but you can tell he's actually still a bit salty about that undeserved 9:
9 outta 10, Imma keep it zen
9 outta 10, can you please fix your lens?
9 outta 10, got you playin' pretend
9 outta 10, here we go again
9 outta 10, coulda bout the fam a Benz
9 outta 10, are you making a [?]
9 outta 10, prolly lost an M
Sh*t ain't nothin man, let it sink in
You 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'd make me this hungry
Lookin' at your judgment and everyone's wondering
Ride the heat the Windy Cit, did you see the damn coat?
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
Didn't got the trophy, but I got somethin' to hold
Forgive me bro, I won't sell my soul
Big chillin', paint me as the villain
And I jumped over the biggest dude in the buildin'
Got willin', the best and I still am
Your judgement, gives me no fulfillment
I see you, young OG, I thought you saw the same to me
Legend in my city, promise Imma make you believe
6 years in the league, just wettin' my feet
Them Miami boys is cool, Im still checkin the Heat
I appreciate the text, and you checkin' for me
Dreams up a dunk trophy, restin' in peace
Reverend Jackson said that's some bulls**t
Lights, camera, action, you're the culprit
Queen Latifa said we'd do it for the fans
Showed these scars and she says she understands
Still tryna jump Shaq for the last one
Been cool since Uncle Drew, so bygones, we get past 'em
Lemme set the record straight
Perfect's, I got 8
That'll ring bells all the way to heaven's gates", as quoted by Genius.com
Needless to say, it didn't take long for The Flash to fire back at Gordon, claiming he should actually trademark 9/10 to make up for the million dollars he cost him in the contest:
Petty or not, this will definitely go down as one of the most controversial moments in All-Star Weekend history. Gordon deserved better and everybody knows it. At least, he'll have a chance at earning some of that money back with this Diss Track.
