Good Morning, NBA Top Shot Team! Happy Thursday! Hope you’re having a great week, and are all ready for the first Top Shot Rare drop in what feels like years! Let’s get into all the action from the last few days:
P.S. — Thursday means we’ve got another The First Mint Live Show tonight! LG is away in the woods (again), but we’ve got Lil’ Noobie filling in alongside Phil D!

Run It Back Drop Details ⏮
We’ve got a fun one tomorrow, with 15,000 WNBA Run It Back Rare packs dropping across two queues. The deets:
We @dapperlabs just announced a massive partnership with @LaLiga plus $250M in new capital from an incredible group: @Coatue @A16Z Mary Meeker @bondcap @GVteam and the Government of Singapore Investment Corporation (GIC) among others
And for those who don’t click into the thread, a few Top Shot -related notes:
“If you’re part of @nbatopshot, expect to see accelerated product development at every step – we want to get out of beta ASAP: mobile app, non-custodial wallets, and of course –– the best content –Including the first-ever #WNBA rare packs dropping Friday!”
Out of beta? Hardcourt? Moving moments off of the platform? Be still, my heart!
As @dapperlabs expands to other sports, our #NFT rarity framework will be very clear: – Rare and Legendary-tier content will always be incredibly scarce – Common and “Fandom”-tier content will be accessible to new collectors –– while still preserving scarcity in the long term
If you were unsure if Top Shot would continue printing Common/Fandom moments at a high rate, they’ve been extremely clear that those mint counts are going to keep escalating. It’ll be interesting to see just how high things go in S3.
Please meet, for her The First Mint debut: Mama Doucet! To celebrate 100 episodes of TFM, there was no better guest than the person who has known LG his entire life. Mom comes on to talk NBA Top Shot, Cryptokitties (yes really), and how NFTs compare to other leaps in technology.
