Admit it - if you’re an avid NBA Top Shot collector, you’ve irrationally obsessed about the valuations of a particular player or Moment. If only we all had a dime for every waking minute we spent on third-party websites like CryptoSlam, Evaluate.Market, Live Token, etc., we’d all probably have a LeBron James Legendary Moment in our collection right? 

A lot of people argue that the monetary value of each Moment in the platform is not the most important thing about a particular Moment. But let’s not kid ourselves - money is what makes the platform (and the world) go ‘round and the actual dollar signs attached to a single Moment is absolutely relevant - if not paramount.

Though it’s impossible to put a price on each Moment - especially the most elusive and prized ones, we’re fortunate enough to have websites like CryptoSlam to help us estimate the value of the most expensive Moments in the platform.

Let’s take a look at the most valuable Moments in the NBA Top Shot platform in terms of its CSV (CryptoSlam Value)

5. LeBron James Dunk (2020 NBA Finals, Series 1)

Obviously, a LeBron James Moment is one of the most valuable tokens on NBA Top Shot. The King’s Top Shot dunks come in many versions but this 2020 NBA Finals one is definitely up there. Only 79 of these Moments were minted and it’s not surprising that the very first mint costs almost a million dollars. Amazingly, this Moment is still hidden in a pack!

4. Luka Doncic Dunk (Cosmic, Series 1)

The future poster boy of the league is one of the most expensive Moments in the NBA Top Shot platform. Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic’s debut on NBA Top Shot is a nastry throwdown against the Denver Nuggets. The Cosmic mint of this specific play only has four listings for sale with a current lowest ask of $125,000.

3. LeBron James Dunk (Holo MMXX, Series 1)

Obviously, a LeBron James Moment is one of the most valuable tokens on NBA Top Shot. The King’s Top Shot Debut comes in many versions but the Holo MMXX one is definitely up there. Only 32 of these Moments were minted and it’s not surprising that the very first mint costs almost a million dollars. Hint - this won’t be the last time you’ll see The King in this list.

2. Vince Carter Three Pointer (Cosmic, Series 1)

You probably didn’t expect this but the iconic Vince Carter is also part of the list. The superstar’s first (and only - so far) Moment in Top Shot is one of the most expensive Moments in the Marketplace. VC’s final shot in his storied NBA career came in the 2020-21 NBA Season as he drained a late three for the Atlanta Hawks. Taking all that into consideration, the seven-digit valuation of the #1 Cosmic isn’t too far fetched.

1. LeBron James Dunk (Cosmic, Series 1)

Coming in at a whopping $2,000,000 in CSV is none other than the four-time MVP LeBron James. LBJ’s Top Shot Debut has four different versions - a Common, an MGLE, a Holo (previously mentioned) and this Cosmic one. His fabled slam on Nemanja Bjelica is dominating the blockchain and the very first Cosmic mint of one of the best dunks from The King’s career. For what it’s worth, Serial #10/49 was listed at under $5,000 back in August 2020. Anyone know where I can get a time machine?
