Sports fans love to announce which star they support. And there’s one great way to do it – by wearing their favorite player’s jersey. It’s always fun to see post-season stats for jersey sales. Predictable? Not always. Well people - the fans, and figures, have spoken. Let’s check out the top 5 NBA jerseys in the weeks following the Championship.
5. Klay Thompson
This was a fantastic season for the once no. 11 overall pick. He’s come a long way since then, averaging 21.7 points per game, shooting 46.3% from the field and connecting 43.9% of his triples. It’s no wonder he was picked for the All-Star team. The moment that got him all the admiration? January 23, when he dropped 37 points in one quarter against the Sacramento Kings. And that moment is up for an ESPY
4. Kyrie Irving
The fans were understandably devastated when he was forced to withdraw from the 2015 playoffs. This Cleveland Cavaliers point guard was exciting to watch – he had a real knack for getting to the basket. He was instrumental in the Cavs turnaround this season, averaging 21.7 points. Could they have made the playoffs without him? Maybe not.
3. Derrick Rose
He stood the test of time, making him one of the most-loved veterans of the league. His popularity remained intact despite playing only 51 regular-season games because of another knee injury. Why do we admire him? Because of his unrelenting energy, creativity in the air and that uncanny ability to weave himself through tight spaces. D-Rose being the third best seller is easy to believe.
2. LeBron James
Many still believe he’s the best basketball player in the world. He delivered a historical playoff performance, averaging 35.8 points, 13.3 rebounds and 8.8 assists per game. At times, it seemed like he was singlehandedly holding the fort for the Cavs in the playoffs. While he’s now slipped to the no.2 spot in jersey sales, we can expect him to claw his way back to the top next season.
1. Stephen Curry
Oh, we knew this would happen. This was his
year. It wouldn’t be Dub Nation without him. First-team All-NBA. All-Star. MVP. Whether you’re a Warrior fan or not, you can’t deny this guy’s spectacular performance this season. He carried the team into a place they hadn’t been to in years. It’s no wonder he’s sitting proudly at the top of the jersey-sale ladder.
