After a record-breaking season that ended in league MVP honors and an NBA title, Stephen Curry is quite firmly on top of the NBA mountain.

This peak, while lonely, has its perks—namely a boatload of money coming in from increased jersey sales.

Yep, after a long time bopping around the top five sellers, the Golden State Warriors shooting guard has passed LeBron James with the most popular jersey in the league, per the NBA:

Bleacher Report's Howard Beck tweeted out further details regarding jersey sales during the postseason:

You'll note some surprising revelations here, notably Kevin Durant falling out of the top 10, Klay Thompson outselling perennial jersey juggernaut Kobe Bryant and Matthew-freaking-Dellavedova cracking the top 15.

Strange times in the kingdom, to be sure, but Curry surpassing James in sales can't really be considered a surprise right now. He had one of the most impressive seasons in NBA history and officially converted the city of Oakland into a basketball town. He has the momentum, and I've been told momentum is huge.

Also, you have to figure roughly one-third of "Curry" jerseys sold are in reference to another baby-faced member of the family. The Riley bump is real.


Dan is on Twitter. He's happy to report the purple Toronto Raptors dino jersey remains the top-selling kit among college-age hoopsters.
