The Brooklyn Nets sold the seventh-most merchandise of any NBA team despite not having any NBA player in the top 20 of jersey sales, according to the league.
The Nets were outsold (in order) by the Miami Heat, Los Angeles Lakers, Chicago Bulls, Oklahoma City Thunder, New York Knicks, and Boston Celtics. Heat forward LeBron James had the league’s top-selling jersey for the sixth time in his career.
An NBA spokesperson confirmed to The Brooklyn Game that Deron Williams had the highest-selling jersey of all NBA players, ranking 22nd overall in the league.
Earlier this season, Jason Collins’s #98 jersey led the NBA Online Store for multiple days following the Nets signing him to a ten-day contract. Collins is the first openly gay male athlete in one of the four major professional U.S. sports.
