We’ve dissected the position that Aaron Gordon will play at Arizona far too often this offseason.
Maybe, instead of worrying about whether he’ll be a three or a four, we should sit back and appreciate the fact that he can do this:
I mean … I just … wow.
Oh, there’s a better angle, too:
The best reaction comes from Rodney Purvis, who is wearing No. 24 in blue on the bench. He immediately sits down and looks away, as Gordon’s dunk was just too vicious to watch.

Marquette freshman forward Henry Ellenson won the Marquette Madness slam dunk contest on Friday night with a between the legs dunk.
The 6-foot-10 Ellenson, the top recruit in Steve Wojciechowski’s freshmen class, defeated sophomore Sandy Cohen, fellow freshman Sacar Anim and Wally Ellenson, his older brother.
Ellenson joins the Golden Eagles as the No. 11 overall recruit in the Class of 2015.
Late Night in the Phog is typically a night to remember for Kansas fans. For Kansas student Jerrod Martin Castro, Friday night’s event is one he won’t forget.
Castro, a sophomore, was selected as a contestant for a $10,000 giveaway. The only thing standing in the way of a big payday was a half-court shot. Brennan Bechard, the Kansas director of basketball operations, attempted the long-distance shot and hit nothing but net.
Kansas head coach Bill Self signed a $10,000 check on the spot.
