LeBron James and the Knicks Have the NBA’s Highest Selling Jerseys


LeBron James has the most popular jersey in the NBA, with the New York Knicks taking home the crown for the highest-selling team shirt. From the press release: “Reigning NBA Finals MVP LeBron James of the Miami Heat reclaims the No.1 spot on the NBA top-selling jerseys list and the New York Knicks are the top-selling team for the first time since December 2004. The list is based on sales at the NBA Store on Fifth Avenue and on NBAStore.com from April 2012 through Nov. 26, 2012, a record-breaking Thanksgiving holiday weekend. James, who last held the top spot in April 2011, climbs from No. 4, taking the lead away from the Chicago Bulls’ Derrick Rose, who slips to No. 5. At No. 2 on the list is the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kevin Durant, who, after making his NBA Finals debut in June, catapults from the No. 8 spot. Also included in the top five are the Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant (No. 3), and New York Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony (No. 4). Since 2001, Bryant has claimed the No. 1 position six times in the bi-annual survey, while James has held it three times. The Knicks rose from No. 2 to No.1 to emerge as the top-selling team, overtaking the top spot from the Bulls, who are No. 4 this season. The 2012 NBA champion Heat came in at No. 2, the Lakers at No. 3, and Boston Celtics at No. 5.”
