For the second consecutive season, Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers had the top selling NBA jersey in China. Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, members of the 2008 NBA Champion Boston Celtics, moved into the top five on this year’s list.

Garnett, who had the most popular jersey in the U.S. this season, moved up to second this year in China. The Houston Rockets’ Tracy McGrady ranked third for the second consecutive season. Pierce, The Finals MVP, whose jersey was not in the top 10 last season moved up to fourth. The Denver Nuggets’ Allen Iverson dropped from second on last year’s list to fifth to round out the top five. China’s Yao Ming from the Houston Rockets, ranked 10th on the list, down from six last year.

Lebron is not in the top five? Yao Ming 10th? I would say that's surprising...

Lebron, along with Kobe, are the two players on Team USA drawing the most attention in China. I'd say they care.

I am definitely surprised that Yao is #10 :confused: Maybe they already have it???

This was the oddity of the night. Behind the Chinese president and the entire national team, the one athlete who appeared to get the loudest ovation was none other than Kobe Bean Bryant. The moment was so odd that even U.S. journalists were looking at each other in puzzlement. The Russian, Chinese and American presidents were here, but Kobe was the head of state tonight.

Lakersdq is right, Kobe is loved everywhere but in the US.

they aren't affected by the gayass media that try to portray Kobe as the bad guy. his game speaks for itself.

Kobe does that himself, look at other trouble makers Melo, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Rae Carruth. They create problems for themselves and they are magnified 100x but look at players like lebron dwade jeter and farve they are all in good standing no trouble with the law and how are they perceived. You reep what you sew.

kobe is a celebrity, he is the NBA's Paris Hilton.

Obviously his jersey sales don't come from his being the best player in Olympics.....37% & 1/15 from 3pt range, while leading team in TO's.

you forgot about the best defensive player in the team,? why do you just choose to point out the bad side of things? you think that Kobe misses that much cause he's playing vs. the best? **** if Kobe was to become the scorer he would eat everyone up just like Wade and Lebron are doing.



NOW you guys see why we defened kobe like Homers cause of ppl like cahawk.

No where'd you get that from? They are not perfect by any stretch no one is. They just know how to keep their noses out of trouble.
