Although the Top Shot craziness has settled down a bit, it’s still a bustling business. An NBA Top Shot featuring a LeBron James dunk sold for nearly $400,000 at auction this week, which just so happens to be a record for the newly popular NFTs. The card featured James’ dunk that emulated former Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant’s reverse windmill dunk years earlier..

Via USA Today:

“One of the most coveted moments minted by NBA Top Shot has sold at auction for nearly $400,000.

The moment — a highlight of LeBron James dunking on a fast-break with a finishing move reminiscent of the late Kobe Bryant, who had died less than a month earlier in a helicopter crash along with eight others — was secured for $387,600 through Heritage Auctions. It’s a record for a Top Shot auction.

Adding to the value of the moment — a Series 1 “From The Top” Dunk — is the rarity of mints (59). The moment number is 3.”

Less than a month after this dunk, Bryant, his daughter and seven others were killed in a helicopter crash.

Pretty special dunk.
