The addition of Kevin Durant to the Warriors wasn’t enough to knock Stephen Curry off his perch of owning the NBA’s most popular jersey.
Curry topped that list for the second straight year, the NBA announced on Tuesday. The rankings are based on NBAStore.com sales from October through April. Durant wasn’t far behind at No. 3 and fellow All-Star Klay Thompson checked in at No. 13.
The Warriors also held onto their No. 1 spot on the team merchandise list, a no-brainer with their stacked roster that includes a fourth All-Star in Draymond Green, who didn’t find his way onto the top 15 list.
James is second
The Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James has the second-most popular jersey, while the top-five also includes the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Russell Westbrook at No. 5 and James’ teammate Kyrie Irvin at No. 5. Oakland native Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers is No. 15.
