2012 NBA Jersey Sales: Derrick Rose No. 2 Top Seller Behind Kobe Bryant

The NBA released international jersey sales figures for the first time ever, and Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose ranks No. 2 among top sellers in 2011-12, behind only Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant. Rose had the best-selling jersey in the United States this season, and recent sales numbers from Adidas locations outside the U.S. establish him as the No. 2 draw in China and Europe behind Bryant and the No. 3 seller in Latin America behind Bryant and LeBron James. If you are wondering why Adidas locations are used to determine the international sales numbers, it's because Adidas is the official on-court uniform and apparel provider for the NBA.
