The Cameroonian born Joel Embiid has taken the NBA by storm since he was drafted in the 2014 draft, being an all-star three times and a key part of the 76ers roster. He is highly regarded as one of the best current players in his position, and is the top 76ers player in terms of jersey sales.

The man with the best beard in the game, and the best euro steps in the game. Harden and the Rockets are a match made in Heaven. The 2018 NBA MVP also has 8 all-star appearances to his name. Averaging a league best of 36.7 points this season, it is clear why fans look to buy the mans jersey. In his past three seasons, he has averaged over 30 points, a spectacular achievement.

Definitely a surprise name here, his teammate Kemba Walker sits only 14th in this list. Since the departure of Kyrie Irving, Boston Celtics have found their new man in Jayson Tatum, who had his first ever all-star appearance this year. Still only 22, Jayson Tatum is one of the most promising talents in the NBA this season, and is in certain contention for Most Improved Player. Jumping from an average of 15.7 points to 23.6 points this season. Tatum looks strong for the future, and has the backing from the Celtics fans.

3- Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors

Coined as one of the best shooters the league has ever seen, and one of the best guards, Curry is the definition of a top three player within all categories. Even jersey sales. A two time NBA MVP, and a three time NBA Champion, although he still missed majority of the season this year, his impact for the league is that strong to be ranked number three. Regarded as a role model for all little point guards.

2- Giannis Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee Bucks

It’s safe to say that Antetokounmpo has been killing it in recent years. The Reigning NBA MVP, captaining the all-star team in two of his four appearances and a key figure for the Milwaukee Bucks, it is no wonder he sits so high on the list. Add to the fact that he is the face of Greece and Orthodoxy, he ticks all the boxes to be on this list. Many fans cheer on the Bucks for the sole purpose of watching Antetokounmpo play, he not only attracts crowds, but he racks up the shirt sales too.

1- LeBron James, Los Angeles Lakers

Just mentioning his name shows how influential he is too basketball. Dubbed as one of the best ever to play, he also has three NBA titles, four MVPs and sixteen all-star appearances. At 35, he is still ahead in the game, sitting in MVP contention AGAIN! His number aren’t astronomically high at 25.7 points a game, but he is a key part to the Lakers team, and their domination in the west. Not only a cult hero, but a basketball superstar, LeBron James has it all set for when the time comes to retire. His jersey will be retired for sure!
