KD x Top Shot 🤩
NBA Top Shot just got a bit more star power.
While we knew Kevin Durant was an investor in the platform and his venture ‘The Boardroom’ had previously had some Top Shot involvement, there hadn’t been a significant public endorsement… Until Wednesday.
Top Shot announced that Durant and ‘The Boardroom’ had joined the NBA Top Shot family, with a blog post that cements the Slim Reaper as the potential face of Series 3. Via the blog:
Which is why we’re beyond proud to announce that we’re joining forces with Durant & Rich Kleiman’s Boardroom to take NBA Top Shot to a whole new level this season. In a landmark partnership, Durant will take on a starring role across Top Shot – including a first-of-its-kind creative development collab that’ll see KD curate and create NBA Top Shot Moments, video content, and more. 
No disrespect to Tyler Herro… But hot damn!
With the recent Dwyane Wade Run It Back promo, and now Durant, Top Shot has come a long way from the days of Alexa G Instagram posts (IYKYK). I wrote a few weeks ago about how cool it was to see WNBA legends interacting with the platform, and how we had yet to see that upper echelon of NBA players really gravitate to Top Shot. It appears my wishes were granted!
WNBA Finals Experience ✈️
If you thought the next Top Shot Suite/Experience was next week at NBA Opening Night… You were wrong! Wednesday saw the announcement of a WNBA Finals Experience, with Top Shot sending four collectors to Game 3 in Chicago on Friday. Details:

✈️ Airfare, accommodations, merch, activities, watch Game 3 of WNBA Finals in @nbatopshot Suite, + more

📸 Four collectors chosen from two snapshots taken on Oct. 4

🏆 Winners revealed tomorrow

Full Details 🔻
I especially like the unannounced snapshot aspect of this drawing — surprise and delight! Winners will be drawn from the pools of collectors that own the full WNBA RIB set (two winners) and the full WNBA base set (two winners). A very cool way to reward those who invested in those sets!
🏆 Challenge Corner
Top Shot, go home, you’re drunk (with content)!
We got not one, but TWO Showcase Challenges dropped on Wednesday, with WNBA Challenge #6 and this very random Rookie Showcase hitting the platform:

Prize Packs:
📦3000x 2021 Playoffs
📦300x Rising Stars
📦300x All Star Game

How to enter:
☑️Make a showcase with 10x Moments
☑️All Moments must have Rookie badge
☑️Stacking allowed

Deadline⚠️Oct 19, 10 AM PDT
I saw tweets from the community earlier this week mentioning the lack of active challenges. Well, you’ve got em’ now! Top Shot, probably:
What a week of content! My brain right now:
