It’s no secret that Orlando Magic rookie Aaron Gordon needs to work on his perimeter skills before making a full-time transition to the wing in the NBA. And by all accounts, Gordon is living up to his reputation as a tireless worker by constantly honing his handle – even if it means crossing-up adorable, unsuspecting children.
Playfully dribbling around a group of kids at the MAGIC FIT Program, the 18 year-old Gordon accidentally broke a little girl’s ankles with a slow crossover, sending her to the floor in a heap of laughs. Gordon’s reaction is just as fun.
Unfortunately for Gordon, NBA defenders won’t fall – figuratively, let alone literally – for such a deliberate move. And even if they do, their error surely won’t elicit such delight.
