Curry, LeBron, 76ers Setting The Pace Among NBA Jersey, Merchandise Sales

By Barry Janoff

January 16, 2018: Nike is in its first year of an eight-year deal, valued at $1 billion, as the official on-court jersey provider for the NBA.

The switch (from adidas) came with significant changes, including the Nike “Swoosh’ and jersey ad patches, as well as the NBA eliminating its traditional "home" and "road" uniform designations and replacing them with four jersey editions: the Association, Icon, Statement and City.

The switch also came with design flaws, mainly jerseys tearing and ripping during games, which Nike said it is resolving.

But something that hasn’t changed: Stephen Curry, LeBron James and Kevin Durant have the best-selling jerseys; and the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers have the best-selling team merchandise.

Perhaps a surprise to some: The Philadelphia 76ers are No. 3 in sales of team merchandise.

Results were released just shy of mid-season and the All-Star Game, based on NBAStore.com sales from October-December 2017.

Sales figures themselves were not released.

Following Curry, James and Durant at No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3, respectively, there was some change among the Top 15.

Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks at No. 4 hit his highest jersey-sales ranking.

Kristaps Porzingis of the New York Knicks rounded out the Top 5.

Rookie Lonzo Ball of the Los Angeles Lakers was up at No. 11 in his first NBA jersey sales list.
 
The resurgent Sixers placed two players among the Top Ten: No 6. Joel Embiid and No. 8 Ben Simmons.

Sandwiched in between them at No. 7 is reigning league MVP Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Kyrie Irving’s jersey was No. 12 in his first season with the Boston Celtics following a trade from Cleveland. Jimmy Butler, in his first season with the Minnesota Timberwolves after an off-season trade from the Chicago Bulls, was No. 15 in jersey sales.

The 76ers rang up hot sellers among team merchandise, coming in No. 3 behind the Warriors and Cavaliers. According to the NBA, the last time the team placed that high was during the 2003-04 NBA season.
