MIAMI (AP) -- LeBron James is atop the NBA's jersey sales list again. The Miami Heat star has the league's hottest-selling jersey, marking the third time the NBA's reigning MVP and Finals MVP has held that distinction. James was No. 4 in the most recent rankings, released in April. Since then, all he's done is win his third league MVP award, a second Olympic gold medal and help the Heat win the NBA championship -- the franchise's second and his first. "It's an honor to be No. 1," said James, who last had the league's best-selling jersey in April 2011. The league released its latest sales-rankings list on Wednesday, with the New York Knicks leading the team-sales category for the first time since December 2004. On the players' list, Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant checked in at No. 2, six spots higher than where he was in April and likely buoyed by the Thunder reaching the NBA Finals. Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers has the league's No. 3-selling jersey, followed by New York's Carmelo Anthony, Chicago's Derrick Rose, Boston's Rajon Rondo, Miami's Dwyane Wade, the Los Angeles Clippers' Blake Griffin, the Lakers' Dwight Howard and the Clippers' Chris Paul at No. 10. Brooklyn's Deron Williams is No. 11, followed by Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook, the Lakers' Steve Nash, Boston's Paul Pierce and Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki. Houston guard Jeremy Lin, whose former Knicks jersey was No. 2 in the April rankings, fell out of the top 15. The list is based on sales at the NBA Store in New York and NBAStore.com from April through Nov. 26. "I give all of the credit to the fans," said James, whose Cleveland jersey topped the league sales charts in 2004. "Let's keep it going." In team sales, the Knicks were No. 1, followed by the Heat, Lakers, Chicago (which was No. 1 in April), Boston, Oklahoma City, Brooklyn, the Clippers, San Antonio and Dallas.
