To be honest, I'm kind of at a loss for words. Cocky doesn't begin to do it justice, and I don't love the negative connotation of arrogant in describing a play that was only as pompous as it was pretty.
By tipping his cap to 'The Mailman' mid-game, Aaron Gordon delivered in a way that could make Amazon Prime eat its heart out, as the time between the opportunity clicking in his head and the execution of the full package getting dunked on our doorstep makes same-day air look like snail mail by comparison. Prime Karl Malone included, there ain't a postman in the business that could match the aggressiveness of that shipment. That's how criminal the misconduct was in breaking the social norms of both basketball and society.
Dropping dunk contest 48's off the alley in traffic during a regular season game is just a patently ridiculous proposition, and Aaron Gordon did it spontaneously while soaring above both the rim and an opponent who once jumped over the hood of a car. Simply put, that had to come compliments of the United Pose-terization Service, because the Fed's might need to be called after he Ex'd everyone else out during a picture perfect oop.
