League Announces First Half Merchandise Sales
Seems like Steph Curry’s popularity did not take any hits when the Golden State Warriors let a 3-1 NBA Finals lead slip away at the hands of LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
As the NBA released its first half merchandise sales today (October-December), Curry is still ranked atop the list, with LeBron James trailing at second and Kevin Durant right behind the two superstars in third. According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, Curry retained top spot in 43 of 50 States, while his Golden State Warriors remained atop team merchandise sales.
Moving to his hometown Chicago Bulls definitely spiked Dwyane Wade’s popularity. The new list also sees four new names, which went unranked in 2015, including Kawhi Leonard and Damian Lillard. Paul George, Chris Paul, and surprisingly Anthony Davis have all fallen out of the top 15.
The always popular Los Angeles Lakers will always be in the top ten no matter how brutal their team record looks. As for the two new teams in the top ten rankings, the Toronto Raptors get some of the spotlight due to a string of playoff success. Meanwhile in Philly, it may just be best to continue trusting the process!
