Paris is known as the City of Lights, and we’re ready to shine bright.
From January 19 to January 22, the NBA will be hosting an epic fan experience in Paris, centered around the NBA Paris Game 2023 featuring the Chicago Bulls and Detroit Pistons.
NBA Top Shot is making the trip too as part of our NBA Top Shot Tour — and we’ve got plenty in store for our community who will be there, as well as everyone who can’t join us in person.
The NBA Top Shot Tour in Paris
On January 19, 2023, the Bulls and Pistons will face off in the NBA Global Games at Accor Arena in Paris, France. NBA Top Shot will be at the game, with a huge group of French and international collectors joining us, along with other fans who made the trip for this unique experience.
At the game, we’ve partnered with the NBA to make a commemorative ticket collectible available for free to every single person in attendance, exclusively redeemable at the event as a special limited edition digital collectible. These won’t be Moments, but they’re awesome and the first of their kind.
We’re proud to help the NBA make this Parisian tradition even more memorable and give every fan at the game a special new way to cherish it forever.
Before the game begins, members of our VIP community will be treated to an intimate private event, rounding out a special first day of NBA Top Shot Tour activities in our first official international community event.
All collectors who join the fun will be eligible to purchase up to two The Tour packs ($49 each) featuring Joakim Noah’s Top Shot Debut as a member of the Chicago Bulls, and the packs will be made available and distributed following the conclusion of the event.
Your Digital NBA Top Shot Paris Experience
For the NBA Top Shot collectors who can’t make the trip to Paris, we’ve got a series of fun surprises to help you join in on the celebration from the comfort of your couch.
The NBA Top Shot Tour Paris Challenge
By locking any two Moments featuring active and retired French NBA or WNBA players, and using the Moments of players who meet certain statistical requirements during the Bulls vs. Pistons game, you’ll be able to earn a Limited Edition Moment from The Tour featuring the Top Shot Debut of French Rookie and 11th overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft, Ousmane Dieng.
Eligible French Players with Top Shot Moments include Boris Diaw, Evan Fournier, Frank Ntilikina, Killian Hayes, Nicolas Batum, Rudy Gobert, Sekou Doumbouya, Théo Maledon, Tony Parker, Marine Johannès and Gabby Williams.
You can shop for their Moments here, and the Challenge will go live on January 19, 2023.
The NBA Top Shot Tour Souvenir Packs
Available in late January, these new Souvenir Packs will contain 4 new Fandom Edition Moments in The Tour Set.
Each Moment will be a Team Moment from the Home Team of the 4 stops on the NBA Top Shot Tour — from each of the games we attended with hundreds of members of our community.
- Portland Trail Blazers Team Moment (against the Minnesota Timberwolves)
- Toronto Raptors Team Moment (against the Golden State Warriors)
- Miami Heat Team Moment (against the Brooklyn Nets)
- Detroit Pistons Team Moment (against the Chicago Bulls)
Whether you attended one (or all) of these The Tour stops and went to the game(s) with fellow collectors, or simply want a collectible keepsake of this special series of NBA Top Shot experiences, you can find all 4 Moments in packs that will be available later this month for an accessible price.
Everyone is eligible to purchase these packs, whether you joined The Tour or not, and these Fandom Edition Team Reels will be minted to demand in a pre-order format that ensures accessibility for all collectors over the world.
Introducing NBA Top Shot Locations
Top Shot is a global product, and our community of basketball fans exists all over the world.
To celebrate that and help connect more of our collectors together, we’re excited to introduce Locations.
By opting-in to Locations, you’ll have the choice to pair your City, State, and Country to your Top Shot profile. By doing so, you can represent where you’re from with pride and find other collectors who share the same Location as you, too.
This is a big week for Top Shot’s international community, and we’re excited to celebrate the NBA’s growing global popularity together.
