Kobe's been 24 for a while now. Lebron went to a new team plus got a new number, of course he is going to sell more jerseys since his cavs jersey is out of style now. Rondo at number 3. . .LMAO i don't believe that at all.

Melo is #8 after being in NY for like a month and a half? There must be a lot of NYers with melo jerseys

rondo at 3? thats the most shocking. kobe was likely to be #2 since lebron got a new number and new team hence a new jersey to buy.

Rondo at #3? That's crazy...

Melo will probably be top 5 at the end of next season after a full year in NYC.

Why is Rondo at 3??? :facepalm: anyways not suprised Lebron passed Kobe as number 1 because it was obvious it was gonna happen since probably the best player in the league went to another team..

New team with new number. Not surprising. Rondo at 3 is the real surprising one.

theheatles
04-13-2011, 07:18 PM
the new number doesn't matter if it's a different team...but this is LeBrons 1st year leading the league in jersey sales, now that's surprising

Bruno
04-13-2011, 07:20 PM
Expected. New jersey, new number.

Rondo at three?? Wow.

Not surprised to see Bron at 1.. Big time player, big name, new team. Not to mention those black Heat jerseys are pretty cool.

my question is did they subtract the burned jerseys from the total sold? only fair

Wow, surprised at all of the Celtics, especially Rondo. He is my favorite player, but I'm shocked to see his jersey so popular...

I'm surprised Rondo's top 3

Thats the first thing I was also shocked by when I looked at the list...I don't think I've ever seen any1 wearing a rando jersey personally

No real surprise here. He's a on a new team. Before this no one had a LeBron James Miami Heat #6 jersey. So everyone had to go out and buy a new one. Anytime you switch teams or numbers it potentially doubles your jersey sales. New unis help a little but not as much. Cleveland also never made any significant changes to their uniforms since LeBron got there so his sales were pretty much stagnant while in Cleveland.

If this was worldwide then Kobe would forsure be #1. Kobe is more popular in China than Yao Ming. Lol.

I really wanted to get a Wall jersey while I'm over in the states for the year, but arent they changing back to the bullets next year? Not much point?

this year I bought Evans Kings jersey and KD's Sonics jersey. Buying the extinct jerseys (fingers crossed for the Kings). **** Stern.

In China they buy the knockoffs, not the authentic so it would not effect the #'s. :laugh:

He has actually played rather well when he has been on the court. Plus, big names like him always sell lots of jerseys.

That List can only Be for the us ... Havent Seen a rondo Jersey in Europe, Ever. Same goes for stat. Durant. Griffin. Wall. Pierce and allen. Weird List. Hard to believe Even As a us based List. Lebron being no1 is the only i can believe.

Rondo at #3? That's crazy...

Melo will probably be top 5 at the end of next season after a full year in NYC.

I honestly think Melo will eventually be #1. Melo has his own fans and now an entire New York fan base.
