Aaron Gordon spoke with Dwyane Wade about diss track: ‘Everything’s good’
Aaron Gordon insists “everything’s good” between himself and Dwyane Wade despite a recent diss track in which the Orlando Magic star called out the retired NBA legend.
The entire situation revolves around the diss track titled “9 OUT OF 10,” which is a literal reference to the controversial score Wade gave Gordon during the final round of the Slam Dunk Contest during NBA All-Star Game festivities earlier this year.
Wade appeared to be taking the slight with a sense of humor, as he tweeted about the situation early Monday morning.
He should trademark 9/10. Make some money off of it. That’s free advice that I won’t charge him for it. (You know since I costed him a Mill) That @DWadeCellars looked https://t.co/Hzt9RnKSwy— DWade (@DwyaneWade) April 27, 2020
Gordon appeared on ESPN’s “SportsCenter” Tuesday morning and revealed he has spoken with Wade about the diss track and that there are no lingering issues between the two.
“I hear that and I kinda just am like, I think that was a response to the diss track without going back into the studio,” Gordon said, via Bleacher Report. “So I take it with a little pinch of salt. But it’s really cool, man. Me and D-Wade, we talked a little bit about it — he told me he liked the song; I told him I liked his wine. So everything’s good.”
Gordon went on to say that the song helped him get over his controversial loss to Derrick Jones Jr. in the dunk contest, which was attributable to how Wade and the other judges all gave him a score of nine on his final dunk.
“People would ask me for it, so I just gave the people what they wanted, just my perspective,” Gordon said. “I had to talk a lot about my opinion and my perspective on the dunk contest, so I thought this was a fun, creative, expressive, uplifting way to voice my opinion and tell the world what I was going through and what I was seeing on that day.”
Given that there appears to be no bad blood between Gordon and Wade, it’s safe to say the story has now run its course and both parties can now move on from it.
