LeBron James tops Kevin Durant as NBA's best-selling jersey

Kevin Durant may top LeBron James in Most Valuable Player award voting this season, but the Oklahoma City Thunder forward still is behind James in jersey sales as “The King” finished the 2013-2014 regular season with the best-selling jersey, according to nbastore.com via Darren Rovell.

Here is the top 15 best-selling jerseys with two surprises behind the top two in Kobe Bryant and Derrick Rose who combined to play in only 16 games this season as a result of injury.

This is the sixth time James has led the league in jersey sales, but Rovell reports this is the highest Durant has been during his seven-year career. In large part to James, the Miami Heat also finished as the best-selling team followed by the Los Angeles Lakers.

Best-Selling Jerseys for 2013-14

1. LeBron James Heat
2. Kevin Durant Thunder
3. Kobe Bryant Lakers
4. Derrick Rose Bulls
5. Stephen Curry Warriors
6. Carmelo Anthony Knicks
7. Dwyane Wade Heat
8. Chris Paul Clippers
9. Kyrie Irving Cavaliers
10. James Harden Rockets
11. Blake Griffin Clippers
12. Russell Westbrook Thunder
13. Rajon Rondo Celtics
14. Tim Duncan Spurs
15. Paul George Pacers

Did any name stick out to you that you were surprises to see or not see on the top 15? I was surprised to not see Dirk Nowitzki or Kevin Love on the list and Dwight Howard in his first season with the Houston Rockets didn’t have fans eager to buy a new jersey.

The biggest surprise addition may be Duncan who cracked the list for the first time in seven years.
