March is one of the most fun times to be a basketball fan. As things heat up on the court, we hope you’re ready to burn, because the competition is about to get intense. The Top Shot Alumni Hoops Leaderboard, live now, invites collectors to join a progressive Leaderboard competition featuring epic prizes using Moments from 244 current and former NBA players whose alma mater is dancing.
What can you win by climbing Top Shot’s Alumni Hoops Leaderboard? Top Shot Merch. Ticketmaster Gift Cards. Autographed NBA Jerseys. NBA Top Shot Balance. Courtside Seats to the NBA Playoffs.
Starting on March 14 and ending on April 3, NBA Top Shot collectors will be able to compete head-to-head on a Leaderboard across 6 rounds, each with distinct prizes, by burning eligible Moments in their Top Shot collection.
Here’s how the Top Shot Alumni Hoops Leaderboard works:
- When you burn a Moment in your collection from an eligible player, the Top Shot Score of that Moment will go on the Alumni Hoops Leaderboard.
- Any Moment you burn between March 14 and April 3 will give you a Trade Ticket, but ONLY the Top Shot Score of the Moments from eligible players will apply to your Leaderboard Score.
- A full list of all 244 eligible players for the Alumni Hoops Leaderboard can be found below, and shopped for here, and all of their Moments will remain eligible through all six rounds of the Alumni Hoops Leaderboard.
- As you burn more Moments, you’ll climb up the Leaderboard, with collectors competing round-by-round for better and better prizes tied to their NBA fandom and passion for collecting on Top Shot.
- There are SIX ROUNDS in the Alumni Hoops Leaderboard, with Snapshots taking place at the time and date listed below. Each round has unique prizes, and as the competition progresses, it will be harder to win them.
- When the timer expires at the end of each snapshot, burning for Trade Tickets will be briefly disabled. It will go back on minutes later, and the next round will begin.
- Your Top Shot Score builds with each round – it does not reset. The score and Leaderboard position you have at the end of each round will remain. Anyone can jump into the action at any point in the Alumni Hoops Leaderboard between March 14, 2023, and April 3, 2023, to compete for the prizes.
- Will you go wire-to-wire and attempt to win every prize, or watch from the sidelines until the end, swooping in to win the Final Round? Keep reading to learn about what you can win and how you can win it.
