Are You Surprised That LeBron James Still Has The Top-Selling Jersey In The NBA?

Some people love him. Other people hate him. But no matter how they feel about him, one thing is for sure: People cannot stop buying LeBron James‘ jersey!

Yesterday, the NBA put out their annual list of their top-selling jerseys from the 2013-14 NBA season. And for the sixth time in his career, King James landed at the top. He’s actually been on the top of the list since 2012 when he won his first NBA championship. And it doesn’t look like he’s going to vacate the spot anytime soon. He may get a little bit of competition from Kevin Durant, though. Thanks to his MVP-worthy season, KD is now ranked second on the list, meaning there are quite a few people out there flocking to stores to buy his jersey right now. And if he’s able to win his first NBA title this year or capture the MVP award, he could give LeBron a run for his money during the 2014-15 NBA season.

Coming in third on the list is Kobe Bryant. That’s a little bit surprising, considering that he didn’t play for most of the year. But people continue to love Kobe even when he’s stuck on the bench. Speaking of the bench, Derrick Rose—who didn’t play for the majority of the season due to a knee injury—landed on the fourth spot on the list. And Stephen Curry rounded out the top five by proving that he has all the marketability in the world right now thanks to his stellar play this season. We wouldn’t be surprised if Curry was able to inch his way closer to the top of the list over the next year or two, either.

Outside of those guys, there are a lot of other familiar faces on the list of top-selling jerseys. Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden were the other guys in the Top 10, and Blake Griffin, Russell Westbrook, Rajon Rondo, Tim Duncan, and Paul George all made the cut as well.

Is there anyone that you think will definitely be on the list next season? We’re a little surprised that no one from the Brooklyn Nets made the cut. And it seems like Dwight Howard should be on the list, too. Is there anyone else you can think of? Let us know in the comments section below.
