🔹 Ready for another IRL experience? Fresh off the awesome Top Shot Suite at Game 5 of the NBA Finals, we got news Friday of the next TS-related fan event — The 2021 NBA Draft next week:
🚨 THE TOP SHOT SUITE IS BACK 🚨
We're sending 8 Top Shot Collectors to NYC for an experience of a lifetime at the #NBADraft.
DETAILS: https://t.co/FAnAICWmRj https://t.co/G09M6Njx3P
In a creative twist, a snapshot of user’s collections was taken prior to the announcement — with 3-star/badge rookie moments earning tickets into the drawing. Here’s what you’ll win, if selected (drawing is Sunday), via the Top Shot Blog:
— 2 Tickets to the NBA Top Shot Suite at the NBA Draft 2021 presented by State Farm
— Airfare & accommodations to and from New York City
— VIP Dinner the night before the Draft with NBA Prospects
— And much more
Important note — if you have eligible moments, you must OPT-IN to be entered into the drawing. You should have also received an email, with details on the amount of entries you earned and more information about the experience. Get your ridiculous draft outfits ready!
🔹Did you complete your Quavo Quest? We had our first celebrity tie-in quest this week, with the rapper & Migos frontman getting into the Top Shot game with his own personal quest! Users who create a showcase with Quavo’s favorite players have a chance at a signed jersey as well as legendary packs:

In addition to the quest, Quavo will also be involved with the Legendary Finals pack drop, with his music featured in the pack-opening! Now that’s a cool way to bring utility, celebrity hype, and basketball fandom all into one partnership.
🔹 Speaking of the Legendary Drop… We got all the details regarding one of the most anticipated packs of the season — the Finals moments:
