Surprising name on list of top NBA jerseys sold

RJ Barrett on the court

NBA jerseys are selling like hotcakes, as they typically do. And atop the list are the usual suspects: LeBron James, Steph Curry and a smattering of others. But this month, they’ve been joined by an unexpected name: New York Knicks guard RJ Barrett.

The league released their jersey sales data on Friday, including the top 15 sellers. And there at No. 14 overall was Barrett, one spot ahead of Lamelo Ball and one spot behind Devin Booker.

Although Barrett was a surprise in the top 15, it was not nearly as shocking to see that Knicks merchandise sells exceptionally well.

For Barrett, who has come on strong in recent weeks, this marks his debut on the NBA’s top 15 jersey sales list.

In 39 games this season, Barrett is averaging 16.9 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game. He’s No. 2 on the team in scoring and defensive rebounds behind Julius Randle (18.8 PPG, 8.2 DRB). The Knicks are 22-24.
