NFT Tickets set for the Celebration of the New NBA Season
Winners from the 3 auctions will each gain access to tickets for the 2022-2023 NBA season at the Madison Square Garden arena. The support generated by the ‘New York Forever’ NFT Collection will definitely help. The Knicks have been missing out on a championship title for the past 49 years.
In February this year, Coinbase plans to host a “Knicks Kicks & Cocktails Gala Party” in New York. Guests can bring their plus one to attend this gala.
The ‘New York Forever’ makes a cut above the rest given the kind of physical perks it offers.
