LeBron leads in jersey sales; Heat most popular in team merchandise

It would appear people are buying all those many variations of Heat jerseys, and especially the ones that say James on the back (or King James, which appeared on the highly popular nickname jerseys).

For the second straight period, LeBron James led the NBA in jersey sales. Kevin Durant moved ahead of Kobe Bryant and Derrick Rose. Dwyane Wade was seventh on the list.

More surprising, perhaps, than LeBron leading in jersey sales, are sales figures that place popularity of Heat merchandise above all other teams. Lists are based off of sales figures at nbastore.com.
