NBA reveals best-selling player and team merchandise for the season.
The NBA has today revealed the top-selling NBA jerseys for the season, a list that includes the usual suspects such as Golden State Warriors All-Stars Steph Curry and Kevin Durant, as well as LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Russell Westbrook. For the third consecutive season, it was Curry who had the most popular jersey.
The best selling NBA jerseys from October 2017 to April 2018 also includes several young stars, most notably a pair of Sixers who finished in the Top-10. Joel Embiid had the eighth best-selling jersey and rookie sensation Ben Simmons checked in at #10. Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo jumped up to the fourth most popular jersey after finishing ninth last season. The only two players who had Top-15 jerseys despite not making the playoffs were Kristaps Porzingis (7th) and Lonzo Ball (12th).
On top of that, the league's official online store revealed the list of most popular team merchandise, which has the Warriors at #1, followed by the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Philadelphia 76ers. According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, it's the highest ranking the Sixers have had since they finished the 2002-03 season in third.
