MIAMI (AP) — LeBron James still has the NBA’s best-selling jersey.

The Miami Heat star topped the list of most popular jerseys this season, and it’s the sixth time he’s had that distinction. With James at No. 1 and teammate Dwyane Wade at No. 7, the Heat also had the top spot on the team-merchandise list.

Kevin Durant of Oklahoma City is No. 2 on the league list, followed by the Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant, Chicago’s Derrick Rose, Golden State’s Stephen Curry and New York’s Carmelo Anthony.

On the team-sales list, following the Heat were the Lakers, Bulls, Thunder and Knicks.

The NBA announced the rankings Thursday, based on overall retail sales on NBAStore.com since the start of the season.
