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..

“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.
