Despite disappointingly missing the playoffs, James and the Los Angeles Lakers finished first off the court. Based on NBAStore.com sales during the second half of the season, NBA and National Basketball Association Player’s Association (NBAPA) announced on Friday that James ended first on the NBA’s top-selling jerseys list. During the first half of the season, James’ jersey was also the most popular.
James is without a doubt one of the most popular players in the NBA. James has finished with the top-selling jersey for the fourth consecutive season, a streak that began with his relocation to the Lakers prior to the 2018-19 season.
The 37-year-old averaged 30.3 points per game in his 19th season, his most since 2005-06. This season, James became the NBA’s oldest player to average over 30 points per game, and he was on the verge of winning the scoring title until he fell short of the required number of games.
The top -15 selling jerseys are listed below. James Harden, Kyrie Irving, and Nikola Jokic, who did not feature on the midseason report, have entered the top-15.
