Good, bad and weird we have some suggestions to start

There’s been a lot of financial talk in the news lately. We’ve had STONKS and Dogecoin and then comes NBA Top Shot. If you haven’t heard about the last one then check out this primer on the website where fans are paying lots of money for free highlights of NBA players.

This got us thinking about a Syracuse Orange version of Top Shot (Anyone who wants to help develop this, give us a call). Obviously moments from the 2003 Championship or G-Mac’s Big East Tournament run would be high on any Syracuse fans list but the TopShot market is driven by individual highlights from exciting young players to the all-time greats. Each moment is limited in number but don’t ask us to explain what makes these so valuable.

Our job isn’t to question, it’s to wonder how we could apply it to Syracuse. We’re not here to assign a market value we just want to hear what moments you’d want to collect from the good, bad, or just plain weird categories. We’ll start you off
