NBA: Miami Heat F LeBron James No. 1 in Global Jersey Sales

Four-time NBA MVP LeBron James topped global jersey sales, according to the latest figures.

Four-time NBA MVP LeBron James of the Miami Heat topped global jersey sales, according to the latest sales figures.

The Associated Press points out the jersey sales rankings were based on Adidas' global sales in the 2012-13 NBA season. 

James' jersey proved to be more popular than his closest pursuers -- the Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose and the Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant

Rounding out the top five are Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant and Heat guard Dwyane Wade. 

Those who managed to make the top 10 were New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard (formerly of the Los Angeles Lakers), Brooklyn Nets guard Deron Williams, Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin and Williams' new teammate, Kevin Garnett (formerly of the Boston Celtics).

James said his jersey being proclaimed global best seller means a lot.

"To know that so many people look up to me, so many kids, that's what means more than anything, that I continue to inspire the youth and look at me as role model.

"I understand, when you wear someone's jersey, you actually like believe in them. You believe they can do supernatural things. It's like an extension of our family and I really appreciate that." 

Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today Sports writes the U.S. list is comprised of James, Rose, Bryant, Durant and Antony, in that order. 

Rose topped the rankings in China, Latin America and Europe, per Zillgitt. 

James came in second in China. Bryant, Houston Rockets guard Jeremy Lin and Durant followed suit.

Bryant emerged as runner-up in Latin America while James was second runner-up. Garnett and San Antonio Spurs forward Tim Duncan took the fourth and fifth spots.

The second to fifth spots in Europe were occupied by James, Bryant, Garnett and Los Angeles Lakers forward Pau Gasol.

The NBA global jersey rankings are a prelude to the league's Global Games, which kick off on Oct. 5 in Istanbul with the Thunder taking on Turkish team Fenerbahce Ulker.

2014 Ryder Cup: Don't Count Team USA out Just Yet

Sep 18 2014 2:00pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The United States has managed to win just one of the last six Ryder Cup tournaments. Going back to 1985, the U.S. team has beaten the Europeans in just four of 14 Ryder Cup clashes, which is an abysmal 28.57 percent winning percentage for Team USA. You have to go back to 1993 to find the last time that the U.S. Ryder Cup team was able to win on European soil. So, needless to say, the past two generations of American golfers have been absolutely trounced by their European counterparts at the R ...

How Kyrie Irving Can Become the Best Point Guard in the NBA

Sep 18 2014 1:18pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Months into life as LeBron James' teammate, Kyrie Irving has already learned a valuable lesson: The King giveth, and the King taketh away. Returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers was, at the time, indicative of the selflessness James didn't espouse in 2010. He left the title-toting—albeit aging—Miami Heat for the young and adrift Cavaliers. In one concise, tell-all essay in Sports Illustrated, James lib ...

NFL Power Rankings Week 3: Updated 2014 Analysis Before Thursday Night Football

Sep 18 2014 9:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

While it is always important for NFL teams to come away with wins each week, every win is not created equal. This makes it necessary to go beyond the records when examining which teams are best. You cannot ignore a surprise 2-0 squad, but overreacting after just two weeks of the season is a much bigger mistake. Plenty of talented teams are ready to turn things around after slow starts, while others are likely to come back to ea ...
