Candace Parker

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.

  1. Did you even see the contest? I didn't when it was aired. I have been reading all of the posts about how 'wonderful' a thing Candace has done. I live in Tenn. and am an avid UT VOLS fan, so was intrigued by the posts (since she is going to be one of our own Lady Vols next season). I wanted to see this girl whip the boys…so I started searching the Internet for footage. Finally I found it and was SO DISAPPOINTED! This contest was given to her. I am a 6' tall former JUNIOR college bench player and could dunk THAT well in school. She was given 10's for the fact that she was a girl that got the ball (barely) over the rim in a downward motion. I thought that I must surely have not seen the right footage…but have discovered that, yes, that's all there was…I felt cheated.-gene-


  3. Bogus. She has no hops whatsoever…Adding insult to her “win” was that she was using a small women's ball..which is much easier to dunk.Dissapointing.

  4. yo she showin everyone how girls can really play…dang she gotta be the hottest girl in the league….she a great playa…none ya can say a lot bad bout her cuz she so good there aint nuthin else ta say!

  5. Get off the girl's back, y'all! She can dunk better than that, but she was recovering from tearing her ACL. She was finally allowed to take off her brace 2 weeks before the contest so before you try to roast on women's basketball you need to get your facts straight!Kno disCampbell High School's balla on da rise!#21, the six-foot female freshie!C/O 2007, playa-pimp!

  6. You guyz need to chill out. We all know Candace is the best female dunker so what if she uses a smaller ball it fits her hand like a men's ball would fit her a man so what's the difference? I am Candace Parker's #1 fan I have her home+away jersey's and I have a signed basketball my lightswitch in my room is her and I obsessively print pictures of her out on the internet. She is the greatest no-one can compete with her. I am the next Candace Parker. She is my role Model. You dont know how much I want to be like her when I grow up. she is so special to me. Candace if u think I am annoying I know how u feel. I have kids who obsessively follow me around because they say I am their role model. I think you are the best and dont let these haterz get u down because they just mad cause they cant dunk!! so they needz to shut-up. Candace is the best of the best and is so cool. and Candace you dont have to call me samantha you can call me Little CP thats my nickname.I LUV CANDACE-Samantha A

  8. Yea CP is the best before I saw her dunk I knew their was something special about her game! I like to think of myself as candace parker and me and my friend like to call her CP because of her name (duh) I am her biggest fan, even though I can't find any items anywhere. I am the next CP and next i will be goin' 2 tennessee state 2 play with pat summit and be just like CP! candace if you ever read this i hope you have great success in the wnba cause i ko3 u will be da #1 draft pick,cause you are better than everybody! and when you get their i will be in the 11th grade, but sooner or later i will be playing right beside u! keep hoop a live!CP 4 lyfe always, your biggest fan:Teresa a.k.a young CP in the process! lol!

  9. I may not have her home and away jersey and may not be a basketball player, but a track runner, but none of y'all are a bigger Candace Parker fan than me. I probably know all most everything about than anybody else (except candae of course).She's making me work hard so that I'll be as decorated as she is when I get to college. So take that.And for all y'all hataz, back off, or you gonna get ganged by the lil CPs
