Two players who have played a combined five games in the month of April lead the NBA in jersey sales over the last calendar year. Derrick Rose had the most jerseys sold between April of 2011 and today, while Jeremy Lin came in at #2, ahead of Kobe, LeBron, and Carmelo. It’s amazing – Lin became a six-week sensation in what, February of this year? He’s surpassed everyone in the league except Rose for a full year despite his jersey only being available for little over two months. I know that some of this is due to the same factors that affect why I still mow in an old, nasty pair of shoes. If you have a Kobe jersey from two years ago, you are probably not replacing it. LeBron Miami jersey sales spiked last year. Rose surpassed those guys because he became a much hotter commodity after his MVP season. Still, Lin sold enough jersey to shoot to #2 when – unlike Tebow, who was selling jerseys before he ever became a starting quarterback – he had zero buzz in 2011. It shows just how Linsane everything got. [photo via US Presswire]
