Kobe Bryant Tops the NBA’s Most Popular Jersey List

Lakers Maintain Lead in Sales of Most Popular Team Merchandise

NEW YORK, Jan. 10, 2007 – The Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant has the most popular jersey in the NBA, moving up three spots from the end of last season on the NBA's Most Popular Jersey List. Bryant, who had the most popular jersey during the 2002-03 season, regained the lead from the Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade who held the top spot since May 2005. Wade drops to No. 2 on the list and the Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James comes in at No.3. The rankings are based on jersey sales at the NBA Store on Fifth Avenue in New York City and NBAStore.com since the start of the 2006-07 NBA season through Dec. 31, 2006.

New teammates Allen Iverson and Carmelo Anthony of the Denver Nuggets round out the top five with the fourth and fifth most popular jerseys, respectively. With the Dec. 19, 2006 trade of Iverson from the Philadelphia 76ers to the Nuggets, the All-Star guard moved up three spots on the list from his No. 7 rank before the trade.

The Los Angeles Lakers remained No. 1 on the league’s Most Popular Team Merchandise List for the fifth consecutive season, while the NBA Champion Miami Heat moved up one spot to second. The New York Knicks rank third and the Chicago Bulls are fourth. The Cleveland Cavaliers made the largest jump on the list this year, moving up from No. 8 last year to No. 5.

Washington Wizards’ guard Gilbert Arenas and 2006 T-Mobile Rookie of the Year Chris Paul from the New Orleans/OK City Hornets make their debut in the Top 15, coming in at No. 8 and No. 14, respectively.

The NBA Store had its strongest sales quarter in history in the fourth quarter of 2006 including the best November sales ever and the largest single sales month ever during December 2006. This season marks the first with adidas as the official on-court uniform and apparel provider for the NBA.

People are buying more Stephon Marbury jerseys than Dirk jerseys? Stuff you can find on the clearance rack shouldn't count...

Maybe thats why Kobe went to 24. So all the Kobe fans would have to buy the 24 jersey and he would be number 1 on the list.

What?! More Steph than Dirk? For real? Dang! Dirk should be on the Top 5. Well for me thats how it should be. I just cant believe people would rather be seen sporting a Starbury jersey other than any more deserving jersey. Like Pops or Ager or Harris'. LOL
I'd prefer an Ager Jersey anytime of the day. A Harris would be nice.

This doesn't seem right. Is it really that hard to total sales from more than one store in addition to the online sales? I wonder how many Marbury sales are made in Dallas, Memphis, NOK, etc.

Maybe Dirk needs to rape someone...?

Well, perhaps that isn't the best idea for him.

He rapes teams every night with his brilliance. Does that count?

Um..most of the people on that list aren't "thugs"


But anyways, I'm out of state a lot and I see a lot of people with Dallas jerseys.

I didn't say thugs, I said thuggISH. But since the subtleties are apparently lost on some people I'll just say what I was meaning at the time. "Kobe rapes girls." and Carmelo participates in brawls...etc, etc etc ....

And now for something totally different.....

The top selling NHL player jerseys on NHL.com for December.

1. Sidney Crosby, Pittsburgh Penguins
2. Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers
3. Jaromir Jagr, New York Rangers
4. Joe Sakic, Colorado Avalanche
5. Alex Ovechkin, Washington Capitals
6. Brendan Shanahan, New York Rangers
7. Peter Forsberg, Philadelphia Flyers
8. Mike Modano, Dallas Stars
9. Martin Brodeur, New Jersey Devils
10. Vincent Lecavalier, Tampa Bay Lightning

Not that anyone besides me cares.

Not trying to e-argue but I'm just sure most of those people wouldn't want to be called "thuggish", especially when all but two or three aren't "thuggish". And also, all rapists and fighters aren't "thuggish". ;) But whatever.

How about maybe "we need to rape somebody to get great sales"?

thuggish was a bad word. Maybe I should've said "disreputable"

Dirk, much to the displeasure of birdsanctuary, just doesn't care about being marketable. I think he could be if he tried, but I like that he doesn't get all caught up in that stuff.

Mavericks not even in the top 10...

Quick trade for somebody on this list...
