Aaron Gordon is a professional basketball player for the Denver Nuggets.
Aaron Addison Gordon is from San Jose, California and he was born on September 16, 1995. He played varsity basketball for Archbishop Mitty High School and started in more than half of the games that he played in as a freshman. Per game, he averaged more than 11 points and 10 rebounds. As a sophomore, Gordon started in 34 games, in which he averaged more than 16 points, 12 rebounds, and 3 blocks per game. He took his team to the state championships on a 20-game win streak. He scored 17 points and had 21 rebounds in the championship game, which his team won, giving them their first-ever state title.
In his junior year of high school, Gordon averaged more than 22 points, 12 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 blocks per game. He also averaged more than 27 points per game in the state tournament that year. Gordon was one of very few juniors to ever be chosen as California Mr. Basketball. He also led his team back to the state championship, but they did not win. As a senior, Gordon averaged more than 21 points, 12 rebounds, and 3 blocks per game. He again led his team to the state finals, but they did not win the championship game. He was invited to play in the 2013 McDonald’s All-American Game, where he scored 24 points, had 8 rebounds, was named the game’s MVP. After the game, he announced his intent to attend the University of Arizona. That same year, he also represented the United States at the 2013 FIBA Under-19 World Championship, where he helped the team to a gold medal.
At the University of Arizona, Gordon played in and started 38 games, averaging more than 30 minutes per game. He averaged more than 12 points, 8 rebounds, and 2 assists per game. He would only play one year of college basketball, foregoing three years of eligibility to declare for the NBA draft. For that one year in college, he was named Pac-12 Freshman Player of the Year and awarded Pac-12 All-Freshman team honors and All-Pac-12 first-team honors.
Gordon was drafted fourth by the Orlando Magic in 2014. During his rookie year, he played in the NBA Summer League and then started the season with the Magic, only to be injured 11 games into the season. After missing more than 30 games, he returned and finally recorded his first professional triple-double against the Milwaukee Bucks.
He had an outstanding showing in the 2015 NBA Summer League, averaging more than 20 points and 11 rebounds per game. In the regular season, Gordon had several stand-out games, before being selected for the Slam Dunk Contest at the 2016 NBA All-Star Weekend. Gordon would compete in an epic Slam Dunk battle, barely losing out to Zach LaVine after a double tiebreaker. At the end of the season, he tied his career-high of 22 points in a game against the Charlotte Hornets.
The following season, Gordon set a new personal best, by scoring 33 points in a game against the Los Angeles Clippers. He was again voted to the Slam Dunk Contest, but he didn’t make it to the finals. During the 2017-2018 season, he set a new benchmark of 41 points against the Brooklyn Nets, and then put up another 40 points against the Oklahoma City Thunder. An injury to his left hip flexor would cause him to miss much of the season, as well as that year’s Slam Dunk Contest.
Gordon opened the following season with 26 points and 16 rebounds against the Miami Heat. He also set a new high for assists that year, recording nine against the Chicago Bulls. During the 2019-2020 season, he was again voted to the Slam Dunk Contest, where he had another epic performance. He again just barely lost out on the title, this time to Derrick Jones Jr. Late in the season, Gordon recorded his first triple-double, 17 points, 11 rebounds, and 12 assists, against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Gordon began the 2020-2021 season with the Orlando Magic, the team he had been with for his entire professional career. However, on March 22, 2021, he asked to be traded from the Magic. He and Gar Clark were traded to the Denver Nuggets in exchange for Gary Harris and R. J. Hampton, as well as a first-round pick in a future draft.
Gordon has seen success in business as well as basketball. He has a partnership with 361º, a leading Chinese sports brand. He is the president of athlete acquisition for Lucid, a sports app, and he has also delved into acting and making music.
In 2021, Aaron Gordon obtained a federal trademark registration for “Palms Down” for use on apparel which includes items such as shirts and hats.
