Top Shot Leaderboards allow collectors to build up their collection and lock Moments to their account for 365 days in order to climb WNBA and NBA Leaderboards connected to your favorite teams and players. To view the Leaderboards, navigate to the Community Tab to find the Leaderboards page.


You can then click on Lock Moments to select Moments to lock from your collection, or you can pick any of the available teams below to select Moments to lock from a specific team. A locked Moment cannot be sold, gifted, transferred, traded in, or used in a Crafting Challenge.

Collectors will earn points for every Moment they lock, based on the Moment’s corresponding Top Shot Score (TSS) value. Each Top Shot Score point will equal one point on every matching Leaderboard. Locked Moments will earn you TSS points on both Team and Player Leaderboards. To learn more about Locking, click here.

By locking Moments associated with Team Checklists, collectors will receive bonuses to their team scores that do not affect their Top Shot Score. For every Team Checklist a collector completes, they are awarded Team Score for the corresponding team, as follows:

  • 10,000 points for completing each Team Series Checklist
  • 20,000 points for completing the Contemporary Team Checklist
  • 25,000 points for completing the All-Time Team Checklist

Team Checklists for a given Series are only available at the conclusion of that Series. For example, WNBA Contemporary Checklists will become available once Series 4 has concluded (to account for multiple Series) and only update at the conclusion of a Series from then on. To learn more about how to view your Team Checklists, click here.

The only way to shoot up the Leaderboards is by locking Moments. If you lock any Moment into your collection, you will earn points on the Moment's Team Leaderboard and Player Leaderboard (so long as the Moment is associated with a qualifying team and player). When you lock a Moment, you’ll be committing to locking the Moment to your account (no gifting, listing, consuming, or withdrawing to a non-custodial wallet) for an extended period of time.

All players with a Moment on Top Shot will have Leaderboards that showcase their top fans, but only select players’ Leaderboards will come with rewards, as these rewards will be directly tied to the player earning accolades in the upcoming season. Collectors can expect exclusive airdrops and groundbreaking rewards to those who rank highly on the Leaderboards, distributed periodically throughout each year. 

Please Note

  • Locking a Moment does not remove the Top Shot Score value associated with your Moments
  • You can only unlock a Moment after the lock duration (1 year from the day you locked the Moment)
  • You can rank on as many Leaderboards as you’d like to pursue
  • It can take up to 24 hours for bonuses to be applied to your account
  • All-Star VIP NFTs are worth at least 250k Top Shot Score on their respective Team Leaderboard
