The new list of best selling NBA jerseys is out and… shockingly even to me… Rajon Rondo is not only the most popular Celtics jersey… he's the 3rd best selling jersey in the league! Here's the list:
1) LeBron James, Miami Heat
2) Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers
3) Rajon Rondo, Boston Celtics
4) Amar'e Stoudemire, New York Knicks
5) Derrick Rose, Chicago Bulls
6) Dwyane Wade, Miami Heat
7) Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder
8) Carmelo Anthony, New York Knicks
9) Dwight Howard, Orlando Magic
10 ) John Wall, Washington Wizards
11) Blake Griffin, Los Angeles Clippers
12) Shaquille O'Neal, Boston Celtics
13) Ray Allen, Boston Celtics
14) Paul Pierce, Boston Celtics
15) Kevin Garnett, Boston Celtics
Wow… five Celtics in the top 15? Impressive.
And isn't it amazing what the bandwagon jumping "Heat Fans" can do for jersey sales. I'm betting most of those people couldn't name another two players who were on the Heat last season.
Hey, congrats Rondo. I guess people really are paying attention.
