Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors are the presumptive favorites to repeat as NBA champions later this spring, they usually have already got the remainder of the league beat in a single class: merchandising.
Curry and the Dubs led the league in jersey gross sales this season for the third straight yr. It helps that the Warriors have among the best-looking jerseys within the league, however three straight journeys to the NBA Finals definitely helps too. In response to the NBA, Curry was the most-bought jersey within the league and the Warriors as a staff bought essentially the most jerseys for the 2017-18 season.
Not surprisingly, Cleveland’s LeBron James was the runner-up for hottest jersey. Fellow Warrior Kevin Durant was third on the checklist, whereas Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo and Boston’s Kyrie Irving rounded out the highest 5.
Two rookies made the highest 15 checklist, together with Philadelphia’s Ben Simmons (10) and the Lakers’ Lonzo Ball (12). The Cavaliers, Lakers, Sixers and Celtics spherical out the highest 5 on the best-selling groups this season.
It’s a bit stunning to see a staff just like the Bulls stick round on the checklist this yr contemplating what their roster seemed like, however I’d guess that’s loads of Michael Jordan throwbacks and never as many gross sales off the present roster — though Bulls followers are fiercely loyal.
