With the season creeping ever closer to it’s exciting completion, us at NBA Nation Australia were interested in who would be the best selling jersey of 2012. We had our suspicions, and have listed below the top 10 selling jerseys as announced by the NBA.
Did you have a guess at the top 10 jerseys? Were you right? How many jerseys did you buy this year?
The NBA and the Hip-Hop world have had close ties for years, and the merging influence has been obvious for sometime.
Iverson’s rapstar-like cornrows, to players wearing ‘urban’ brands and ‘baggy’ attire, all the way to the BEATS phenomenon. Rappers wearing NBA jerseys, quoting players in lyrics and being seen at games. The two go hand in hand.
But what about NBA players spittin’ venom on the mic?
Well that’s just it…… quite a few have, and not many quite live up to the hype.
Pretend for a minute you’re a coach of world champion basketball team. A team who’s name is synonymous around the world with a winning culture. Pretend for a minute you have perhaps the greatest player of all time playing on your team. A player who time and time again has ripped victory from the jaws of defeat. Pretend for a minute you are down 14 points, with 6 minutes left in the last quarter, in a game where you’re fans and management demand a win. Pretend for a minute, you bench you’re best player. Welcome to the Staples Center, March 25th 2012. Los Angeles Lakers v Memphis Grizzles.
