“Badah bah bah bah…. I’m lovin’ it!” McDonald’s and athletes go pretty well together, don’t they? Well only McDonald’s CEO would say something like that. This year, McDonald’s sponsored yet another All American game for boys basketball.

An All American game is basically a all star game with this years (2016-17) high school senior graduates. McDonald’s started this tradition in 1977 with its very first All American game. However, you don’t have to be “American” to play as they include players from the U.S and Canada.

This years game had countless big name players compete head to head in an East vs. West

game. Athletes such as Michael Porter Jr, Collin Sexton, Trevon Duval, Mohamed Bamba, Jaylen Hands, and Billy Preston competed March 29 2017. As like the previous 6 years this game was held at the United Center in Chicago.

This game serves to these high school kids as the biggest reward you can get coming out of high school. This game is also broadcast on television which is a first for many.

Every prospect on this years East and West team was part of ESPN’s Top 100 (which is how it always is). This year Michael Porter Jr., the number one high school player in the country on the West team and Trevon Duval the number one point guard in the country on the East team. Although most of these players have already committed to a certain college to play for, some prospects have not committed yet and it’s a good time to have more colleges see than and help them find out which college they want to attend.

       This year’s McDonald’s All American game was won by the West in a 109-107 victory over the East. Michael Porter Jr. was the MVP of the game for the West with 17 point and 8 rebounds.
