The NBA Store recently announced the best jerseys for the 2009-2010 season. Once again, Kobe Bryant found himself at the top of that list. It’s no wonder for second place on that list, two-time MVP LeBron James. The next spots were filled by Boston’s Kevin Garnett, Chicago’s Derrick Rose and Magic’s Dwight Howard. The only reason Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant was as low as 10 despite leading the league in scoring is probably because he plays for a small-market team.

NBA store sales are hit hard by its sales in New York City. At Top Sports Jerseys, we have similar but not identical rankings. We may have a better pulse than the national average, as the store is online and easily accessible to shoppers across the country.

Our top 5 list consists of LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Dwayne Wade, Rose, and Durant. That should come as no surprise, as all five players had stellar seasons. Durant’s momentum came toward the end of the season when he reached James as the league’s leading scorer. He led his team through the playoffs and helped lead the Lakers to 6 before falling short. Rose and the Bulls played tough against the Cavs, but fell short again this year. Rose’s playoff performance helped her cause of t-shirt sales.

Among all the players in our top 5, only Bryant remains in the playoffs. We’ll display the results at the end of the postseason to see how the jersey sales rankings stack up. For now, rest assured that the remaining four teams – Orlando, Boston, LA and Phoenix – are making strong sales.
