Remember the appeal of buying and trading cards when you were a kid? There was nothing as special as opening a pack and finding a name, someone you knew would make your friends go nuts.

Today’s generation of fans might find that same magic through a new vehicle—owning highlights. Say it with me: Digital...crypto...highlights.

The surging new platform is known as NBA Top Shot. It hails itself as a “revolutionary new experience in which jaw-dropping plays and unforgettable highlights become collectibles that you can own forever.”
