What are Moments?

Moments are officially licensed NBA collectibles that celebrate the game’s epic highlights from the most incredible basketball stars. They are the core parts of NBA Top Shot, capturing some of the best plays from across the NBA.

What separates them from regular highlights? Each one is made unique through NFTs on the blockchain. In other words, your Moments are your Moments.

Moments include exclusive collectible details of your favorite players like:

  • On-Court Video Highlight
  • Guaranteed Authenticity by the NBA and NBPA
  • Moment Type, Parallel Type, Tier, Series, and Serial Number
  • Highlight and Player Stats
  • Badges
