Hoverboards made an appearance at the NBA Dunk Contest on Saturday night in pretty spectacular fashion.

At the league’s annual competition that features top dunkers showing off their freakish athleticism, Orlando Magic forward Aaron Gordon utilized a hoverboard to throw down one of the night’s most impressive jams.

Stuff The Magic Dragon, the Magic mascot, stood with the ball in his hands under the hoop while slowly spinning in place on a hoverboard — one of the more popular tech gifts last year that sparked controversy after safety concerns arose related to fire-starting lithium-ion batteries.

Gordon took off from the three-point line and timed his sprint perfectly, snagging the ball from the spinning mascot with one hand and throwing down a 360-degree windmill dunk — all in one motion!

Prior to that, Gordon also had another dunk with the mascot standing on a hoverboard:

There were plenty of other jaw-dropping dunks on Saturday, with some saying it was one of the best contests in NBA history. Enjoy:
