NBA: Kobe Bryant Continue To Be Global Favorite, Top Jersey Sold

The NBA released Thursday its first-ever overall international top selling jerseys list and despite not being the most popular league figure in America, five-time NBA Champion Kobe Bryant has the most popular NBA jersey internationally. The top 15 list was based on sales at Adidas locations outside the United States during the 2011-12 NBA season.

Due to the mixed feelings expressed among countless basketball fans in America in regards to his behavior towards past teammates (most notably Shaquille O’Neal), his desire to be like Hall of Famer Michael Jordan (which every player should strive to perform like) and his off-the-court infidelity, Bryant’s talent can not be ignored.

At the age of 33, Bryant was .1 point away from winning the NBA scoring title (27.9) until Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant edged him out in the final contest of the regular season as he ceased the throne with 28.0 points per game.

This list help legitimize Bryant’s brand world-wide as being an outstanding success.

Chicago Bulls’ guard Derrick Rose, Miami Heat’s guard/forward LeBron James, Boston Celtics’ forward Kevin Garnett and Orlando Magic’s center Dwight Howard, round out the top five.

The list features three players who were in the NBA Finals: James (2012 NBA Finals MVP), Durant and Miami Heat’s guard Dwyane Wade.

International stars such as Los Angeles Lakers’ forward/center Pau Gasol from Spain, Dallas Mavericks’ forward Dirk Nowitzki from Germany, San Antonio Spurs’ guard Tony Parker from France, and Minnesota Timberwolves’ guard Ricky Rubio from Spain made the top 15. 

The NBA also announced the top five selling jerseys in key regions of the globe: China, Europe and Latin America. In China, Bryant has the top selling jersey for the sixth straight season while Rose moves up to No. 2. Bryant had the top selling jersey in Europe and Latin America this season. 

Earlier this year the NBA announced that Rose had the most popular jersey in the United States.  This is the sixth season Adidas has served as the official oncourt uniform and apparel provider of the NBA.
