Sport An NBA Top Shot highlight of an epic LeBron James dunk just sold for $200K
Complete NBA All-Star starter voting, from LeBron James to Nate Hinton
LeBron James led the NBA in All-Star starter voting by fans (5,922,554), fellow players (214) and media (100). But despite winning the overall fan vote for the fifth straight year, something he previously said drove him him to compete hard in All-Star games, LeBron is not enthused about going to Atlanta for this year’s event. Nate Hinton received no player or media All-Star votes and just 238 fan votes, the fewest in the NBA. But he’s not far removed from just being happy to hear his name called on draft night. Not as an actual selection. But by the Mavericks, who called to sign him as undrafted free agent.
NBA Top Shot — the official league highlights with blockchain technology that have turned into the latest sports collecting craze,— continues to generate a ton of money in sales whether it’s people buying “packs” or purchasing rare cuts in their marketplace.
We’ve seen a few highlights sell for $100,000, and now there’s a record-breaker that sold for $208,000 (!!!). It’s a moment in which LeBron James dunked all over Nemanja Bjelica as the Sacramento Kings forward attempted to take a charge back in 2019.
It was purchased by a group of investors … and who knows what it could sell for if the demand continues to grow.

Report: NBA hopes to get LaMelo Ball to do All-Star skills competition .
The league is going ahead with plans for a skills competition and hope LaMelo Ball is in it.With the All-Star Game, the players are voted in/selected by the coaches and, if healthy, have to show up. However, for the dunk contest and skills competition, players are invited and have to accept. It may prove difficult to get the players they want, as those players may choose rest and time off over competing.
