The Golden State Warriors don’t enjoy the same success they had in 2018, but they are still popular. Stephen Curry still has one of the top-selling jerseys in the NBA in late 2019. According to the latest data provided by the league, there’s a small change to the top-selling pieces. Lakers superstar LeBron James has the top spot in the jersey category.
Curry was replaced at No. 2 with Giannis Antetokounmpo. The young star jumped up from No. 3 since April 2019.
When it comes to overall gear sold, the Golden State dropped a few spots in the rankings from October through December 2019. The Warriors is the sixth-highest selling team. They were at No. 2 in April.
This information didn’t really come as a surprise to us. Curry is followed by Boston’s Jayson Tatum and Houston’s James Harden. The Lakers, Celtics, 76ers, Raptors and Bucks make the top five in top-selling teams and LeBron James’ jersey is a big part of Lakers’ jersey sales.
No. 1 overall draft pick Zion Williamson is 15th on the list of top-selling jerseys. This is a result of the fact that he has yet to play a regular-season game this year. The rookie rehabs from a preseason injury. However, he is expected to be one of the best faces in the league. Dallas superstar Luka Doncic hit the No. 6 spot. In April, he was ranked No. 13.
We are in the middle of the season, and a lot of players have just started making names for themselves. Williamson, Toronto’s Pascal Siakam, Denver’s Michael Porter Jr. and Charlotte’s Devonte’ Graham are some of them. It will be more than hilarious to see some of these jump to the top five. LeBron will own the top for a really long time. There’s no doubt in that one.
LeBron and his Lakers have lost just eight games so far, and they own the Western Conference. Hopefully, he will stay healthy to finish the season as planned. The Lakers need a title, and LeBron can give them one. Of course, he can’t do that without Anthony Davis. These two make the best duo in the league, and they can sure make the Finals.
