LeBron James Beats Out Kobe Bryant For NBA’s Top-Selling Jersey

Kobe Bryant and LeBron JamesTwo-time NBA champion LeBron James of the Miami Heat continues to see his popularity rise as he is now the owner of the top-selling jersey in the NBA beating out Kobe Bryant for the top spot according to ESPN.com:

Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers is No. 2 on the list, followed by Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls despite Bryant missing most of the season with an Achilles injury and Rose sidelined for the rest of the year with another knee injury.

Following James, Bryant and Rose on the list of top-selling jerseys is Kevin Durant at No. 4 and Carmelo Anthony at No. 5. A few first-timers also made the list with Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors coming in at No. 6 along with up-and-comers James Harden (No.12) and Paul George (No.14). George is only one of three Indiana Pacers to make the list since 2001 along with Jermaine O’Neal and Hall of Famer Reggie Miller.

Other notable big-names to make the list were Dwyane Wade (No.7), Chris Paul (No.8), Kyrie Irving (No.9), Blake Griffin (No.10), Russell Westbrook (No.11), Rajon Rondo (No.13) and even rookie Michael Carter-Williams (No. 15) of the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Heat, Oklahoma City Thunder and Los Angeles Clippers lead the way with two players apiece of the top-selling jersey list. Bryant remains the only Laker with a jersey flying off the racks this year which really comes as no surprise.
