NBA: Phoenix Suns at Los Angeles Lakers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NBA. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Phoenix Suns fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, a full 100 percent of responding Suns fans are confident the team is headed in the right direction. That’s the fourth week in a row to hit that high-water mark.

Outside of the on-court action, the biggest craze in the NBA right now is the explosion of Top Shot. The collectible, blockchain-based highlight repository has attempted to combine the worlds of basketball trading cards and booming investments. However, despite the increased coverage and huge amounts of money involved, the average basketball fan doesn’t seem to care much at all.

According to fans around the country, more than 90 percent of NBA fans said they don’t own a Top Shot.

Like the trading cards that predated Top Shot, there is a clash between if this new product is an investment meant to increase in worth and eventually be sold for more money, or a piece of memorabilia kept by fans to enjoy. According to more than three-fourths of fans, they think of Top Shot more as memorabilia than the expensive investment it appears to be right now.

Likely as a combination between the lack of ownership interest and seeing Top Shot more as memorabilia than anything else, fans don’t think this will last. This time next year, most NBA fans think the bubble will burst on the Top Shot fad.
