WATCH: LaVine, Gordon take flight in motion capture suits for NBA 2K17
After captivating audiences during their epic Slam Dunk duel in this year’s NBA All-star game, Zach LaVine and Aaron Gordon are back at it again with their gravity-defying throwdowns.
A 41-second clip from YouTube featured the high-flying duo, clad in motion-capture gear, as they lend their insane leaping abilities for the production of the popular NBA2k video game franchise.
Meanwhile, 2K’s official Instagram page shared additional footage of the high-flying acts—starting with a sweet one-handed, reverse slam from the Minnesota Timberwolves’ guard and back-to-back Slam Dunk Contest champion, LaVine.
Not to be out done, the Orlando Magic forward and 2016 Slam Dunk Contest runner-up Gordon re-created one of his dunks from the contest.

Missing in action, however, was Orlando’s Stuff the Magic Dragon mascot, who gained notoriety for serving as Gordon’s trusty Dunk Contest partner.
The NBA 2K17 video game will be released sometime in September this year. Khristian Ibarrola
