The Shiba Inu team could be set to announce a new project or partnership relating to basketball, based on various teasers from those involved in SHIB.
Posting both on Twitter and Discord in the aftermath of Marcie Jastrow joining SHIB, members of the Shiba team sent GIFs and cryptic teasers linked to basketball.
SHIB For Three Teaser
On May 23, Shiba lead Shytoshi Kusama entered the Shiba Inu Discord server, and said: “For THREE. #hint”. He then disappeared, and did not post any follow-ups.
Of course, this leaves it open for a wide amount of speculation. Three for three could refer to three subsequent announcements by SHIB, starting with Jastrow joining the Shiba Inu Metaverse team.
With Shytoshi previously stating exciting things are coming this week, further announcements - whether the mystery metaverse developer, Shibarium documents, or news on the Shiba Inu game - could round off this trifecta of updates.
However, the activity of others in the team makes us believe it could refer to a potential Shiba basketball project.
Kraken, a member of the Defence Breed, posted “3PEAT” on Twitter just 12 minutes after Shytoshi’s hint. Having posted teasers in the past for CK1 - revealed to be the announcement of Shiba Inu’s lawyer - Kraken has a track record of legitimate teasers.
To further follow this connection to three, Kraken changed his profile picture to Numbuh 3 from Kids Next Door.
3PEAT is a term used in sports to refer to winning three consecutive championships. It links to the NBA team LA Lakers in their first push to winning three titles in a row. While their first try was unsuccessful, the Lakers achieved this three-peat between 2000 and 2002.
Further posts by both Shiba Growth member Milkshake and Kraken suggest a link to basketball. Before sharing 3PEAT, Kraken posted a GIF of Golden State Warriors player Kevin Durant. When looking at the tags on this GIF from the NBA, it is tagged “#for three”.
In reply to this GIF, Milkshake also posted a GIF of Kobe Bryant on Discord.
So, if a basketball project or collaboration is in the works for SHIB, what could it mean?
Well, the options are wide open. As with previous potential collaborations, it could relate to sponsorships, a new NFT collection, the Shiba metaverse, or anything else within the SHIB ecosystem.
Of course, there is always the chance this interpretation is a missed shot. With “For Three” having various interpretations and meanings, the SHIB team could surprise us with something entirely different.
