This continues to defy logic. LeBron, probably the most hated player in the NBA, continues to be the most popular. His first year in Miami (the absolute height of his hate), LeBron’s jersey was tops in terms of sales. That didn’t make any sense. Well, that has continued as he is still first on the list. I guess he’s there to stay.
|Top 15 NBA Players by Jersey Sales|
|1. Lebron James||2. Kevin Durant||3. Kobe Bryant|
|4. Carmelo Anthony||5. Derrick Rose||6. Rajon Rondo|
|7. Dwyane Wade||8. Blake Griffin||9. Dwight Howard|
|10. Chris Paul||11. Deron Williams||12. Russell Westbrook|
|13. Steve Nash||14. Paul Pierce||15. Dirk Nowitzki|
All it took was a regular-season MVP, NBA championship, Finals MVP and Olympic gold medal for Miami Heat forward LeBron James to regain the No. 1 spot on the NBA’s best-selling jersey list.
James last held the top spot in April, 2011 and was No. 4 in the most recent best-selling jersey list in late April. He passed Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant, now-Houston Rockets guard Jeremy Lin and Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose, who had the top spot in April but has not played since the playoffs with a torn ACL in his left knee.
