At the 2016 NBA All-Star Weekend in Toronto, Aaron Gordon and Zach LaVine put on a dunk contest for the ages and according to the Orlando Magic forward, it could be time to run it back!

In an interview with TMZ Sports, Gordon indicated that he was interested in participating again, especially with the event in Chicago next year in front of LaVine's home crowd.

"I think so, it's starting to look like that. It's something I want to do, so we'll see how it goes man," Gordon said. "It's really up to the NBA, but we're gonna do it."

When asked if there was anyone in particular he wanted to compete against, Gordon floated a dream lineup involving some of the league's best high-flyers.

"Oh man, I know Zion [Williamson]'s probably going to do it, Zach's hometown right now in Chicago so he'll probably do it. Hami [Hamidou Diallo] you know he won, Donovan [Mitchell]," Gordon added.

"I mean there should be a lot of people in it, there's a lot of good dunkers, it should be more than four. "

Williamson is yet to even play an NBA game, but has been throwing down dunk contest-calibre jams in high school and college, however he told ESPN's Rachel Nichols that he wasn't 100% sold on the idea.

"I don't think I'm going to do [the dunk contest] to be honest, unless something changes my mind," Williamson said.

"I'm not much of a dunk contest person, it's kind of like I just do it in warmups to get myself going...We already got some great dunkers, they won't be missing nothing with me."

Could a showdown with LaVine and Gordon be enough to change his mind?
