One Surprising Name Makes List Of Top NBA Jersey Sales

LeBron James, Steph Curry, Giannis Antetokounmpo... These are names you expect to see on people's backs, and in a list of the best-selling jerseys in the NBA. RJ Barrett? That's a surprise entry to the best-seller's list, and he's thrilled to be there, crediting the New York fans. 

"It just kind of shows that when you work hard and give your all, especially to a city like this, they love you back every time," said Barrett. 

The rest of the list of Top 15 jersey sales are much more expected names:

Barrett slotted in at No. 14, behind LeBron, Steph, Giannis, Kevin Durant, Luka Doncic, Jayson Tatum, Ja Morant, Trae Young, Klay Thompson, Damian Lillard, Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis and Devin Booker. LaMelo Ball rounded out the Top 15.  

The 21-year-old's Barrett's 3rd NBA season hasn't been a huge success, but in his last 10 games, however, the numbers show out like many of the other 14 players on the list.  

He's averaging 23.3 points and 6.1 rebounds, including three 30-point games over that span. 

The Knicks, incidentally, came 6th in overall team sales, with the Los Angeles Lakers leading the way there.
