Steph Curry missed much of this season with injuries, playing in only 51 games. He's also sidelined right now, recovering from a sprained left MCL. On Monday night's Warriors-Spurs broadcast, play-by-play man Kevin Harlan stated Steve Kerr had told him Curry would be out for another three weeks.
When he has played, however, Curry has been phenomenal: as good as he's ever been. Curry, playing his fewest minutes since his third season in the league, averaged 26.4 points, 6.1 assists, and 5.1 rebounds per game while shooting 42.3 percent from deep. As a result, despite all the time he has missed, Curry remains a favorite to qualify for one of the All-NBA teams.
Thanks to his inimitable style of play and his team's success, Curry led the NBA in jersey sales the previous two seasons. And he's done it again this year, topping jersey sales among all players in the league.
Philly's two great young players, Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, made the list. Simmons clocked in at No. 10 while JoJo shot all the way up to No. 8. Simmons was the only rookie to make the top 10. Next-highest: Lakers rookie guard Lonzo Ball, who came in at No. 12.
The Warriors sold the most team merchandise, followed by the Cavaliers and 76ers.
