Aaron Gordon was robbed

During the Slam Dunk Contest on Saturday night, the 24-year-old had five (yes, FIVE) perfect scores, but that somehow was not enough for him to take home the top prize. That honor went to Miami's Derrick Jones Jr., who, to be fair, had a pretty good night himself. The blame seems to lie with the judges, and Jones is ready to run it back. But that all will likely not do much for Gordon, who now has to settle for the dubious honor of being the best dunker to never have won a Slam Dunk Contest. 

Which brings us to today's quiz of the day. Combining his two appearances, Gordon has a total of eight perfect scores, the most of any player ever. In the history of the NBA Slam Dunk Contest, 35 different players have recorded at least one 50. So with that in mind, how many of those 35 can you name in five minutes?

Good luck!

Can you name every NBA player to score a 50 in the Slam Dunk Contest?
