What a time to be alive. The greatest moments in NBA basketball are officially hitting the blockchain. 

NBA Top Shot is opening up beta and we’ll be dropping hot plays starting today. Our launch library contains 150 top highlights from the 2019-20 NBA season. That’s 5 highlights from each team, 5 different players on each team, to make sure there is something for everybody. This library will continue to grow both forward in time as games start up again and backward in time to build a more robust look at the 2019-20 season.

On an average drop day at NBA Top Shot we expect to be dropping one… maybe two… new packs, but today is not an average day! Three packs are on the block.

Pack Drop: Early Adopters 

For you lucky hoops diehards participating in early access to NBA Top Shot – this pack’s for you. The Early Adopter pack features 1 of the 10 hand-picked NBA Top Shot Moments that are only available in this Special Edition during the closed Beta. For Original Gs only.

Examples of what you could score

  • Kristaps Porzingis, the Dallas Mavericks unicorn, drills a deep three
  • LA Lakers leading man Alex Caruso comes up with a big time block against the Pels
  • Utah Jazz vet Mike Conley heaves a half-court buzzer beater ftw 

Key stats

  • Pack cost: $9
  • Time-limited Moments - no cap on number of packs, no more packs sold once closed beta concludes
  • Total packs available during first 48 hour window: 1,350
  • Drops June 15, 2020

3 moments per pack

  • 2 Base Set Moments
  • 1 Common Early Adopters Moment  

Pack Drop: Rookie Debut 

Who isn’t looking for the first ever Rookie Debut Special Edition Ja Morant dunk? Rookie seasons are once in a lifetime and the fire plays can never be repeated, neither will these limited edition Moments when they sell out. 

Our initial drop of Rookie Debut SEs will only be available in Rookie Debut packs. New moments by rookies will be added into this set in the future, so while specific Moments will sell-out, the set will keep growing. 

Once Challenges launch, the only way to cop a monster Zion Williamson Rookie Debut swat will be to own one of each Rookie Debut from this initial drop, so don’t sleep on it. 

What you could score

  • Aside from the aforementioned Ja Morant dunk…
  • Eric Paschall, rising star on the Golden State Warriors, throws down a massive two-handed slam 
  • Miami Heat fan favorite Tyler Herro sinks a go-ahead three (splash.)
  • Coby White, no longer only of draft day fame, of the Chicago Bulls, dishes a behind-the-back dime

Key stats 

  • Pack cost: $49
  • Total packs available: 1,125
  • Number-capped Moments - Only 250 of each Special Edition total
  • Drops June 15, 2020

9 moments per pack

  • 6 Base Set Moments
  • 2 Rare Rookie Debut Moments
  • 1 Rare Metallic Gold LE Moment

Pack Drop: Cosmic 

You helped choose the players we’re featuring here, and now this top-tier, limited-edition pack is available first exclusively to our fan panel and early adopters. Once these packs sell out, Cosmic Moments will only ever be available from the lucky fans who own them… If they ever give them up. At a cap of 49 of each Exclusive Edition, they’re rarer than rare.

Legendary packs like this drop far less frequently than Rare packs, so you may want to take this opportunity while it’s available.

What you could score

  • Beloved Dallas Maverick Luka Dončić splits the defense and drives a ferocious dunk
  • LA Clippers fun guy and superstar Kawhi Leonard drops a hammer on the Celtics
  • Spencer Dinwiddie of the Brooklyn Nets knocks down a clutch dagger

  • Drops June 15, 2020

10 moments per pack

  • 6 Base Set Moments
  • 3 Rare Metallic Gold LE Moments
