WNBA Top Shot Release Met with Excitement and Confusion


Recently, the WNBA announced that they will partner with NBA Top Shot to produce WNBA NFTs. August 27 marked the first day that fans and collectors were able to purchase these moments. It’s already been proven to be a great way to showcase the game and give it broader appeal. It will bring more viewership and excitement to the WNBA. Imagine all the historical moments that will be available, have value, and serve as a teacher of WNBA history. WNBA heads were ecstatic about being one of the first to purchase these NFTs. The ability to own big shots, rare dunks, and game winners will bring more attention to the game.

Riveting Rollout

Headlined by Hall of Famer Lisa Leslie and reigning MVP A’Ja Wilson, the first pack included moments from A’Ja Wilson, Sabrina Ionescu, Breanna Stewart, and more. NBA Top Shot has landed fans, artists, ex-players, TV personalities, and people from all walks of life all to one space. The WNBA’s own Lisa Leslie, Renee Montgomery, and Crystal Dangerfield have joined the list of WNBA notables invested in NBA Top Shot. Bet on seeing more involvement across NBA and WNBA lines going forward. It will bring involvement from individuals outside the game, fans young and old, and put fans all in the same position of trying to get the #1 moments. Top Shot already features known faces in the NBA like Mark Cuban and Daryl Morey, also vocal artists like Quavo. You might wake up one day and Shaq is placing a bid on your moment. You just never know.

What is an NFT?

NFT is an acronym for a “Non-Fungible Token”. It is an asset that stored on the Ethereum blockchain. They have value as collector’s items. Top Shot moments will be distributed with a limit on how many will be available to purchase. They come with serial numbers that let you know which number it was in its creation. The higher the number, the bigger the value.

In terms of value, if you have the #1 moment of 1500, you will own the most valuable moment in that set. Moments carry more value if they’re big plays. Nneka Ogwumike’s big shot to put the Minnesota Lynx away in the 2016 Finals is a well-known example of such a moment. Excitement about owning the biggest moments in WNBA history will be through the roof.

Own A Piece Of History

In the near future, historical moments will be available in Top Shot. Collectors will have the opportunity to own Lisa Leslie’s dunk, the WNBA’s first. Former LA Sparks member Penny Toler scored the WNBA’s first made basket, which will likely be available. Teresa Weatherspoon made the very first game winner in the WNBA. Diana Taurasi‘s 1,000th 3 pointer. Candace Parker, Becky Hammon, Renee Montgomery, and Sue Bird moments should certainly hold very high value with WNBA historians. The league and Top Shot could release draft moments. The possibilities are endless.
