With the NBA's annual dunk contest a damp squib recently it was left to the nations top high-school talent to entertain basketball fans.

Yesterday the 2014 McDonald's All-American dunk contest brought together some of the best young players on one court as they tried to outdo each other with the most elaborate dunks.

The video above, brought to us by the people at Ballislife, shows some of the highlights from the contest which was ultimately won by Grayson Allen.

Allen, who is heading to Duke next year, wowed the watching crowds by jumping over just about anyone he could find - that included Providence teammates, rap stars and Duke's Jahil Okafor.

But as you can see in the video, there were plenty of other amazing dunks on display in Chicago.

And our personal favorite has to be the blindfolded effort of Kentucky-bound Karl Towns Jr - that is just plain impressive.

Or maybe it was the #SelfieDunk produced by Theo Pinson, we just can't decide.
