Who sells more jerseys, Lebron James or Steph Curry?
Between the two of the biggest NBA stars, LeBron James and Steph Curry, who has the highest sales of NBA jerseys and merchandise?
The National Basketball Association (NBA) and the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) recently announced that Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors has reclaimed his position as the NBA’s Most Popular Jersey list’s top-selling player. The announcement came just in time for the beginning of the playoffs, where the league’s biggest stars were set to take the court.
For almost a decade, Curry and LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers have been two of the most talked-about players in the league. They have faced each other numerous times in the NBA Finals and have consistently been the All-Star game’s top vote-getters. It’s challenging to mention one without the other.
