The Los Angeles Lakers are currently not living up to their hype; as this article is being made, they’re currently in 8th place in the West, and their All-Star studded squad consists of LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook, and Carmelo Anthony has a 22-23 record and Frank Vogel currently on the hot seat with the possibility of losing his job. So things are a bit bleak at the moment.
But that doesn’t mean the team hasn’t had some wins this NBA season, with one particular W located in the jersey department. Recently releasing the stats for this year’s jersey sales, the NBA has tallied that the Lakeshow holds the number one spot–more specifically, LeBron James. So apparently, the team being historically bad isn’t enough of a repellent to keep NBA fans from getting their hands on King James gear.

Following the King sitting atop the throne is Stephen Curry at #2, Giannis Antetokounmpo at #3, Kevin Durant at #4, and Mavs superstar Luka Doncic sitting at #5. Unfortunately, the only other Laker to find their way onto the best-selling jersey list is Anthony Davis coming in at #7; I guess you have to take the good with the bad, though, right?
