LeBron James has come out on top in another category in the NBA — the global jersey sale list for last season. The Miami Heat superstar seems to have regained all of his popularity around the globe and beat players such as Derrick Rose, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant.

The full list of the jersey sale rankings is below (via CBS Sports):

1. LeBron James, Heat
2. Derrick Rose, Bulls
3. Kobe Bryant, Lakers
4. Kevin Durant, Thunder
5. Dwyane Wade, Heat
6. Carmelo Anthony, Knicks
7. Dwight Howard, Rockets
8. Deron Williams, Nets
9. Blake Griffin, Clippers
10. Rajon Rondo, Celtics
11. Steve Nash, Lakers
12. Chris Paul, Clippers
13. Russell Westbrook, Thunder
14. Kevin Garnett, Nets (Celtics)
15. Joe Johnson, Nets

It is interesting to see that despite not playing a single game last season, Rose still maintained his popularity and has the second-best selling jersey in the world. Naturally, names such as Dwyane Wade, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant and Carmelo Anthony are close to the top.

What is perhaps a little surprising is the fact that the Brooklyn Nets have two players on the list. Despite having an up-and-down season, Deron Williams ranked eighth, while Joe Johnson also makes the list at the number 15 spot.
