Jeremy Lin Second In NBA Jersey Sales, Ahead Of Kobe Bryant And LeBron James

Jeremy Lin has been out of the New York Knicks' lineup since March 24 with a meniscal tear in his left knee. But in case anyone forgot about Linsanity, a quick glance at the NBA's leading jersey sales provides a reminder.

Since April of 2011, Lin's jersey has sold more than anyone else's with the exception of Derrick Rose. Although Lin's gear was not even found in stores until he blew up overnight in February, he has sold more jerseys in the past calendar year than LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and anyone else who wasn't the 2011 NBA MVP.

Lin was present at the Knicks practice on Wednesday to participate in some "light jogging" and "slow-paced basketball moves," according to ESPN New York. He wore a brace on his surgically-repaired knee and coach Mike Woodson said the best-case scenario is that Lin returns in time for the conference semifinals.

Carmelo Anthony was fifth on the list, behind only Rose, Lin, Bryant and James. View the top 15 NBA jersey sellers here.
