LeBron James Tops List of NBA’s Most Popular Jerseys
LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers leads the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) list of most popular jerseys for the sixth consecutive year.
This year’s rankings are based on retail sales at NBAStore.com since the beginning of the 2014-15 season.
Other players in the top five are Stephen Curry (No. 2) of the Golden State Warriors, the Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant (No. 3), the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kevin Durant (No. 4) and Derrick Rose (No. 5) of the Chicago Bulls.
Interestingly enough, Bryant and Durant have both been injured for most of the season, though their status as two of the most elite scorers in the NBA likely contributed to high jersey sales.
The Bulls earned the top spot for best-selling team merchandise, while the Cavaliers, Warriors, Lakers and Thunder rounded out the top five.
