Here’s some rather predictable news:
Kobe Bryant topped the list of the league’s most popular jerseys for the second consecutive season, according to sales figures released by the NBA today. Bryant’s jersey was No. 1 in sales at the NBA Store in New York and on NBAStore.com. Meanwhile, the Lakers were the league’s top seller in overall merchandise for the seventh time in the last eight seasons. The Celtics were second, the Cavaliers were third, the Bulls were fourth and the New York Knicks were fifth.
