2009 McDonald's High School All-American Dunk Contest Videos
by: Jim Hlavac, Richard Walker
April 1, 2009
Monday night we were on hand in Miami, Florida to witness six of the best players in high school basketball, and potential future NBA draft picks, at the

2009 McDonald's High School All-American Dunk Contest. This was another chance to try out our exclusive DX-Mo video technology so be sure to let us know what you think!

Going into it the consensus amongst the players was that Georgia Tech recruit Derrick Favors was the front-runner, but a steady performance by Avery Bradley, Jr. (Texas) allowed him to win in the finals over both Favors and Mason Plumlee (Duke).
