The NBA is a global attraction with millions of viewers tuning in to watch the highest level of basketball the world can offer.

Together with being spectators of the matches, many fans have their favorite teams and players. Oftentimes, viewers want to express their fandom by buying merchandise of their favorite stars and clubs.

According to journalist Michalis Gulenoglou who tracked the sales on website and in stores in Milan and London, the best-selling jersey in Europe is that of Stephen Curry from the Golden State Warriors.

Giannis Antetokounmpo

Team: Milwaukee Bucks
Position: PF, SF
Age: 27
Height: 211 cm
Weight: 98 kg
Birth place: Athens, Greece

Interestingly enough, the second place also does not belong to a European. Instead, Memphis Grizzlies superstar Ja Morant, who recently said he would easily beat Michael Jordan in one-on-one, is firmly in second place.

Probably the most famous European player comes in third place with Dallas Mavericks' Luka Doncic closing out the podium. Giannis Antetokounmpo, for example, is fifth.

The surprise of the list? Miami Heat's Tyler Herro sits at number 7, beating the likes of Kawhi Leonard and Joel Embiid. Serbian superstar and current league MVP Nikola Jokic is also not in the Top 10.

  4. Jimmy Butler
  5. Giannis Antetokounmpo
  6. LeBron James
  7. Tyler Herro
  8. Paul George

Although individual players' jerseys dominate the sales, the Greek journalist also calculated the sales of each of the 32 NBA teams. Here, despite LeBron James being only in 6th place in individual jersey sales, his team, the Los Angeles Lakers, who didn't even make the playoffs last season, takes first place in the Top 10.
