For basketball fans, the NBA Draft represents the start of something special. 

The unknown potential and promise of a prospect entering the league and joining their favorite team’s roster. It's the first step in a rookie’s professional journey, and maybe, one day, a Moment-worthy NBA Finals performance that brings them and their fans a championship.

It’s a night to be celebrated — for players, their families and their fans  — and this year, NBA Top Shot is continuing a tradition we started last year with Access Unlocked: NBA Draft. 

We’ll be taking 5 collectors (and their plus ones) to Brooklyn to attend the NBA Draft at Barclays Center on Thursday, June 23, 2022. To recognize their outstanding contributions as a member of our community, we are also delighted to announce that Louis B aka “Wags” in Discord will be joining us and our collectors as an honorary Access Unlocked attendee.

Here’s how Access Unlocked for the NBA Draft works

There are four ways you can win one of five spots at the NBA Draft — three different snapshots and one sweepstakes.
