Lebron's head shape is awful for shaving. Dude's just in a rough spot, but really should just let it go and stop trying to hold on. Makes me respect Durant's giant bald spot.

This Top Shot thing is actually taking off huh? What a world we live in.

I was trying to buy in over the weekend because it actually did seem to be guaranteed profit at one point but it seems like they've shut everything off for now because of too much demand.

I think the simplest way to explain it is just a digital basketball card.

But then they're all certified by the NBA and NBAPA so you have the legal rights to trade and sell them, basically making it like a stock exchange in a way. Basically all they have done so far is go up in value. Seems pretty dangerous for people who don't understand risk management given that there is no barrier to entry at all and some of them are already "worth" thousands.

It’s fucking tulips all over again. They hold zero value in any setting other than the NBA dork circle. At least with cards, you could physically possess them.

I don't pretend to understand blockchain whatsoever but I think that aspect of it at least provides proof of ownership so you can kind of "possess" them.

Anyway, its stupid as hell and seems sketchy but I just wish I would have bought some for shits and giggles when towel posted about it a few weeks ago.

I too wish I could have invested in something early and made a bunch of money.

ive made a lot of money off nba top shots, im in a discord group that was in on in since they started it and its been very good. Even investing on a like a luka early holding until value goes up and selling for profit. It's kind of crazy wasn't expecting it to be lik this

I think NBA is gonna remove free highlights online so that those top shots have value if you want to see a spectacular highlight

Being the cool league that was hands off with highlights/games on YouTube and Twitter was bad so they have to piss on that is what you're saying then towelie?

Yeah I don’t buy that. It would make sense if they had skin in Top Shots but they don’t?

It took me like 15 minutes on their website to understand what the fuck they were selling. Then I thought it actually gave you exclusive rights to the highlight or something, but nope. It's just an expensive ass gif. It's worth money because someone paid for it and someone else will buy it but it doesn't really do anything.

bit gutted for conley, i think hes been better for utah than mitchell and hes still never been an allstar, but otherwise good picks. id have either middleton or adebayo in over vucevic in the east but its not like vuc is undeserving

No Middleton is wild. Maybe Milwaukee has slightly underperformed but they're still 3rd in the East and he's averaging 21/6/6 on 50/43/90.

middleton catching friendly fire for giannis fatigue and his reputation taking a hit over the last 6 months is the only thing i can think of?

Trae Young is the guy I'm surprised about. 27/9 on 60% TS for a top 10 offense.

Just lots of guys in the East I guess.

I feel like Lavine gotta be on there just for the "he's literally never going to play better than this, we gotta reward him" factor (same with Randle), and Tatum is Tatum, but I have no idea how Vucevic got in over him.

Tatum/Simmons are forwards, right? So they didn't even need the extra big?
