    Default Top selling NBA jerseys. Rondo is #3?

    Thought this was interesting enough to start a new thread. I never buy jerseys.

    LeBron Reclaims Top Spot In NBA Jersey Sales


    By Tom Rotunno
    CNBC.com

    There's a new king in NBA jersey sales. In his first season with the Miami Heat, LeBron James has reclaimed the top spot on the NBA's best-selling jersey list.

    James is back at No. 1 for the first time since April 2004. Kobe Bryant, who held the top spot for the last two seasons, falls to No. 2.

    The NBA's top-selling jerseys list is based on sales on NBAStore.com since the start of the 2010-11 NBA season.

    Perhaps the biggest surprise of the list comes at No. 3, a spot claimed by the Boston Celtics' Rajon Rondo, who finished 15th last season.

    It's the biggest jump of any player this season and is remarkable given his popularity is still likely limited to the Boston area. Rondo traded places with his teammate Kevin Garnett, who fell from third to 15th.

    Other players who saw their jersey jump in popularity include the New York Knicks' Amar'e Stoudemire, who ranks fourth after not making the list last year. Rookies John Wall and Blake Griffin were tops in the rookie class, coming in at 10th and 11th, respectively.

    The New Orleans Hornets' Chris Paul saw the biggest drop, falling out of the top 15 after finishing seventh last year.

    A league high -- and Most Popular Jersey list record -- five Boston Celtics made the top 15 (Rondo at No. 3, Shaquille O'Neal at No. 12, Ray Allen at No. 13, Paul Pierce at No. 14, and Garnett at No. 15).

    It wasn't enough to help Boston claim the overall top spot in team sales. That distinction falls to the Los Angeles Lakers, whose gear is the No. 1 most popular selling team merchandise for the eighth time in the last nine seasons.

    Making its first top-10 appearance in team history is the Oklahoma City Thunder at No. 6. It will likely come as no shock that the Cleveland Cavaliers fell out of the top 10 in team merchandise sales this season. The Cavaliers were the third most popular team in the 2009-10 season, the last before King James took his talents -- and jersey sales -- to South Beach.

    Here's a look at the top 10 jersey-selling teams in 2010-11:
    1. Los Angeles Lakers
    2. Boston Celtics
    3. Miami Heat
    4. New York Knicks
    5. Chicago Bulls
    6. Oklahoma City Thunder
    7. Orlando Magic
    8. San Antonio Spurs
    9. Denver Nuggets
    10. Phoenix Suns

    I love watching Rondo play... that guy has transformed his game so much since he entered the league. He's become a truly unique, dynamic player. I absolutely love the way he runs the point, his paint penetrations, his change of direction, his passing, his use of momentum and leverage against opponents, his mentality. Every time I watch the Celtics, I'm sitting there wishing we had Rondo on the Pacers. Far and away my fave PG in the league.

    Hell, I might go buy me a Rondo jersey.
    There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.

    Rondo has become hugely popular over the past 2 seasons, and it's well deserved. As much as I hate the Celtics, Rondo is a great PG and is pretty fun to watch (as long as he's not carving up the Pacers defense).

    He still can't shoot and it still cripples the Celtics at the end of games.

    LeBron is only #1 because he's arguably the best popular player in the league, and has been with a brand new team since the beginning of the year. That combined with Miami Hype, everyone wanted to get a new LeBron jersey. The same is true with Amar'e, and Carmelo would be higher on that list if he had been traded earlier.

    Yeah, I think the Lebron Bump is the bandwagoners switching from Cavs to Heat jerseys.

    Which makes the Rondo jump all that much more impressive to me.

    With the starting back court of Lance Stephenson and O J Mayo the Pacers will be top 10 next year easily.

    ...I'm not seeing the relevance to this thread in this post...

    Nor do I believe that Lance or Mayo will be starting for the Pacers next season.

    He probably means top 10 on that jersey-selling teams list.
    And I'd assume it was a joke
