Austin Rivers, the nation's top high school hoopster, honored his father, Celtics coach Doc Rivers, by removing his McDonald's All-American jersey Monday to reveal Doc's No. 25 Atlanta Hawks jersey, while participating in the slam dunk contest at the nation's most prestigious high school All-Star game in Chicago.

Sporting his father's jersey, Rivers produced the only perfect score of the night in the opening round with a bounce-ball slam that culminated with an emphatic one-handed jam. It was enough to help Rivers land in the finals, where Oklahoma State-bound LeBryan Nash emerged as champ.
