Mavs’ Luka Doncic hints at joining NBA Top Shot craze after Mark Cuban text message
If you haven’t signed up for NBA Top Shot as of yet, Mark Cuban might want you to stop everything you’re doing and get on the site right now. This thing is about to blow up, if it hasn’t already. Right now, even Mavs star Luka Doncic is on the brink of joining the party.
Luka Doncic himself confirmed that he’s well aware of the NBA Top Shot craze and that he intends to join the growing community soon.
This is thanks in large part to Dallas Mavericks team owner Mark Cuban who has been incessantly reminding Luka Doncic to jump on the bandwagon:
“Mark keeps texting me that I’ve got to register,” Luka Doncic said, via The Dallas Morning News. “so I’ll do it soon.”
Cuban himself has been all-in on the NBA Top Shot hype, and he’s been one of the biggest personalities to have recently joined in on the craze.
For Luka Doncic and those who require context, NBA Top Shot, in a nutshell, is an online platform that facilitates the buying, selling, and trading of digital basketball cards. Of course, it’s much more complicated than how I’ve put it, with the ecosystem also revolving around NFTs and blockchain technology. If you want more info on this highly addicting hobby/venture then I suggest you go and browse through some of our resources here and here.
There have been some doubts as to the legitimacy of NBA Top Shot and digital playing cards as a whole (why pay thousands of dollars for a video that I can easily watch on YouTube?), but for what it’s worth — and Luka Doncic might be interested to hear this — the company behind the brand, Dapper Labs, recently added none other than the GOAT himself, Michael Jordan, in their most recent round of investments.
Luka Doncic himself is one of the most sought-after names in NBA Top Shot and some of his rarest “moments” (this is how they refer to the cards in NBA Top Shot) have fetched hundreds of thousands of dollars in sales. The fact that he just confirmed his intention to actually sign up and get his own account is some humongous news for the Top Shot community in general.
