Orlando Magic rookies Aaron Gordon and Elfrid Payton were in New York on Sunday for an NBA photo shoot – some of which was outdoors – involving many of their 2014 Draft classmates. It’s part of a camp for the NBA’s newest employees that involves a lot of professional and personal learning now that these guys are all wealthy athletes. The event quickly became a day of fun as Gordon and Payton got involved in dunk contests, shoe fashion shows, dance offs, and other harmless shenanigans that you’d expect a bunch of eighteen and 20-year-olds to get involved in.

Elfrid played alley oop distributor on plenty of occasions. If Aaron gets a dunk contest invite for All-Star Weekend, Payton better be involved on at least one jam. Victor Oladipo has already left his ‘feathery’ influence on Elfrid. The ‘Air’ and ‘Aar’ Gordon nicknames are beginning to stick too as the Arizona Wildcat will have all of Orlando’s eyes left wide open. Through the NBA’s Reddit Q & A, we also found out Elfrid can juggle. It’s nice seeing the Magic’s young studs enjoying themselves with peers.
