Unreal. Candace Parker, the two-time Naismith Player of the Year, won the dunk contest at the McDonald’s All American Boys and Girls Games.
The catch? This wasn’t the girls’ competition. She beat the guys.
Last year’s winner? A guy you might have heard of: Lebron James.
Candace played her high school ball less than a mile from my house, and is headed to Tennessee next year. She first dunked in a game as a sophomore.
