Attention ladies and gentlemen; Aaron Gordon can dunk. 

We all saw his display at the 2016 Slam Dunk Contest in Toronto, Canada, but whenever his legacy may just be fading into memory he pops up with a vicious slam just to remind us what he can do. 

Starting his third season in the NBA, the forward is trying to prove to people that he is a complete player and not just a dunking machine. 

In the small market of Orlando, Gordon has been going about his business, posting 11 points, 5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.5 steals per game as the Magic have started the season 1-3. 

All of those numbers - barring the rebounds - are career highs. But having said that, it can never hurt to have a highlight play or two in your locker. 

The 21-year-old produced one of the highlights of the season, and potentially a glimpse into the 2017 Dunk Contest, with a huge 360 throw down during the Magic's win over the Philadelphia 76ers. 

Stripping the ball from Richaun Holmes, Gordon had all the time in the world to attack the basket and brought the crowd inside the arena to their feet. 

The former Wildcat played in excess of 30 minutes against Philly and dropped 7 points, stole the ball 3 times and had 4 dimes to his name.
