Kobe Bryant Tops NBA Jersey Sales

In the thick of the NBA Playoffs, Kobe Bryant is also hot stuff off the court, as he led the league in jersey sales from the beginning of the season through April of this year.

Kobe Bryant tops this year’s list of most popular NBA jerseys, a spot held last year by the Boston Celtics’ Kevin Garnett. The list is based on sales at the NBA Store in New York City and NBAStore.com from the start of the 2008-09 NBA season through April.

Other jerseys in the Top 10 include, in order, LeBron James, Chris Paul, Kevin Garnett, Allen Iverson, Dwyane Wade, Paul Pierce, Nate Robinson, Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard.

Fans continue to demand Los Angeles Lakers merchandise, as the team tops the NBA’s list of most popular team merchandise. The Celtics fall to No. 2 after holding the top spot for the first time during its 2008 championship season. The New York Knicks, Cleveland Cavaliers and Chicago Bulls round out the top five.
