NBA Top Shot Weekly Summary (Week of 5/31/2021)
Updated: Jul 11
Last week, we saw green after seeing what seemed like months of reds. I'm crossing my fingers this is the start of an upward trend, but let's review the events last week that may have contributed to this upswing.
May 31, 2021 (Monday)
Throwdown S2 Challenge 4 went live for an Anfarnee Simmons reward. Moments required to complete the challenge include the Throwdown Moments for Ayton, Embiid, Reid, Oladipo, Clarke, Leonard, Oubre Jr, Rozier, and Bridges. The total cost to complete this challenge as of June 6th is $851. This challenge, that ends Monday, is the only active challenge at the moment.
Top Shot announced the postponement of the Holo Icon drop and confirmed that a Premium Pack will be the next LE drop.

The Cool Cats Master Challenge was finally put to rest with 2,953 collectors completing it. Those who continue to hold all their Cool Cats Moments will not only be able to join @PlungeFather's exclusive Cool Cats Discord server but will also be receiving some Perks from Top Shot such as automatically qualifying for all queues left for Series 2, and being able to join an upcoming Cool Cats Channel in the official Top Shot discord, where they will have access to exclusive events and chats with NBA players and Roham.

Reservation for Playoff Packs has started and will end on Wednesday, June 9 at 9am PDT. The $14 pack can be claimed from June 11 to June 14.
Top Shot dropped the Collectors Upgrade blog which includes updates on roadmap, collector score, payments and moment utility.
You can now see Moments you own while browsing the marketplace!

Top Shot posted the Road to Premium Packs and Holo Icon blog which contains a couple of major updates:
Premium Packs will be dropped on Monday, June 7th at 2 PM PDT. A 2,500 Collector Score is required to join the drop.
Holo Icon packs may be dropped a week or two after the Premium Pack drop. A significantly higher collector score may be needed for this drop.
Collector score can now be viewed on the Top Shot website.
Marketplace spend bonus was introduced. The marketplace bonus rewards those who have lost money in Top Shot by adding a bonus to their collector scores which is calculated by total dollars spent on the marketplace less total dollars in sales.
