Stephen Curry tops NBA jersey list for first time in career

The Golden State Warriors star and league MVP topped the list of jersey sales in the NBA for the first time Tuesday. With teammates Klay Thompson ranking fifth and Draymond Green at No. 15, the Warriors also led the team merchandise sales list during the playoffs.
James, who held the top spot at the end of the regular season, dropped to second. Derrick Rose is third and Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving is fourth.
Following the NBA champion Warriors on the team merchandise sales list are the Cavaliers, Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers and San Antonio Spurs.
The league based the rankings on overall sales on NBAStore.com from April through June.
The latest figures cap Curry's incredible season. He led the Warriors to a franchise-record 67 wins -- plus 16 more in the playoffs -- and their first championship in 40 years.
Curry was the leading vote-getter for the All-Star teams, won the 3-point contest and took home NBA MVP honors. The Warriors beat James and the injury-depleted Cavaliers in six games in the Finals.
And unlike James, who is in his second stint in Cleveland after four years with Miami, Curry has never changed jerseys -- which usually leads to more sales. Curry has been with the Warriors since they drafted him seventh overall in 2009.
Thompson, Green and Cavaliers point guard Matthew Dellavedova (No. 14) made their debuts on the list. The Lakers' Kobe Bryant was sixth, followed by Houston's James Harden, Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin, San Antonio's Tim Duncan, Chris Paul of the Clippers, Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard of the Spurs, and Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook.
The Rockets ranked sixth on the team merchandise list. The Clippers, Thunder, Celtics and Heat rounded out the top 10.
David Lee to Boston, Gerald Wallace to Golden State.
David Lee traded to Celtics, according to report
By Ricky O'Donnell on Jul 7, 2015, 2:48p
The Golden State Warriors have unloaded David Lee in the final year of his contract. Lee has been sent to the Boston Celtics in exchange for Gerald Wallace, according to Tommy Dee and Marc Stein of ESPN. Lee is set to make $15.5 million next season.
Lee lost his starting job to Draymond Green after suffering a hamstring injury in the last game of the regular season. The Warriors excelled with Green entrenched at power forward, and Lee was used in a limited role for the rest of the year as the Warriors went on to win the NBA championship. The Celtics are hoping Lee can rediscover what made him an All-Star as recently as 2013.
The Celtics always made sense as a trade partner for Lee. Lee is still a skilled scorer in the front court, and a much more useful player than Wallace. The Warriors can now use the stretch provision on Wallace to ease the final year of his salary, which they couldn't have done with Lee. The Warriors potentially saved a lot of money with this trade.
Lee averaged 18.2 points and 9.3 rebounds per game on 52.3-percent shooting in the 2013-14 season, but his numbers slipped to career-low levels across the board in a diminished role this season. Lee did see some playing time in the NBA Finals against the Cavaliers, and performed well, scoring 11 points in Game 3 and nine points in Game 4.
the entire gang is back except for DLee. they needed to ship out Lee because everybody got raise.
worse, they got GWallace in exchange. good luck na lang.
Thanks for the trade Dubs!!
Please take care of Wallace and his mouth
they should waive GWallace. they already have AIgoudala who is a very poor free throw shooter.
not unless, they are willing to send Wallace and Igoudala to shooting clinic.
plus, the GSW is already over the cap by 9M. it is wise to dump Gerald's 10M for future draft picks and pick up cheap free agents who are more effective.
They don't care about Wallace. They just want to dump Lee. Problem here is nagpalakas ang ibang teams. I don't know if they can still defend the title especially luck won't be particularly favoring on their side like this season. (Holiday, Conley, Bev, Irving/Love)
GWallace out, JThompson in.
another salary dump.
Lee is more skilled but jason thompson is cheaper and grittier.
pupunta si Steph Curry next month sa Manila as per BTV
Warriors 2015-16 Schedule Released
SAN FRANCISCO—If people didn’t see enough of the Golden State Warriors during last year’s Championship run, they will have plenty of opportunities to see Stephen Curry and the defending NBA Champs in action throughout the upcoming season.
The Warriors have a franchise-record 25 national TV appearances on the calendar for the 2015-16 season, including five on ABC, 10 on ESPN and 10 on TNT. Dub Nation was on national TV a total of 20 times during the 2014-15 regular season.
In addition, the Warriors have a franchise-record nine games scheduled on ESPN Radio and nine currently slated to air on NBA TV.
The 2015-16 season begins October 27 with three games, including the Warriors hosting Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans. Dub Nation will look to get a win on “Ring Night” when they welcome their former associate head coach and current Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry.
Chicago hosts Cleveland earlier on opening night in its first game under Fred Hoiberg, who was hired after the Bulls fired Tom Thibodeau.
Most teams begin October 28, including a new-look for the San Antonio Spurs making their debut with LaMarcus Aldridge and David West at Oklahoma City, which could welcome Kevin Durant back to regular-season action after his 2014-15 season was cut short by injury.
Later that night, the top two picks in the June draft square off when No. 1 Karl-Anthony Towns and Minnesota visit the Los Angeles Lakers, who could put No. 2 pick D’Angelo Russell into a backcourt with a returning Kobe Bryant.
The schedule this season is more player-friendly thanks to commissioner Adam Silver saying he wanted more time for players to rest between games. For the first time in franchise history, the Warriors will not play four games in five nights at any point during the season.
The annual Christmas NBA Hoops marathon features five games, with an NBA Finals rematch on the slate mid-day. The Warriors will host LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on national television at 2 p.m. at the Oracle Arena.
Miami also hosts New Orleans on Christmas, Chicago visits Oklahoma City, Houston welcomes San Antonio and the Lakers and Clippers will see who the best team in Los Angeles is this season.
Get ready Warriors fans, it should be an entertaining season.
