NBA Goods Hot In Europe, And The Lakers' No. 24 Leads The Way

October 1, 2009: The NBA next week will return to Europe for the fourth consecutive year when the Chicago Bulls and Utah Jazz play games in London and Madrid as part of NBA Europe Live 2009 presented by EA Sports. Following NBA Europe Live 2009, NBA teams will have played 50 games in 18 different cities in Europe over the past two decades, according to the league.

A big part of the league's continued presence in Europe is sales of NBA goods. According to the league, the NBA's merchandising business in Europe consists of more than 60 partners distributing NBA products to more than 16,000 retail locations. International sales account for 30% of the league’s overall global merchandise business.

Although financial details were not released, jerseys account for a majority of sales in Europe, and Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers tops the list of most popular NBA jerseys in Europe for the 2008-09 season, as it did in 2007-08, based on sales from retail locations across Europe. In fact, the top four most popular jerseys remain unchanged from the previous year, with Kevin Garnett of the Boston Celtics at No. 2, Pau Gasol of the Lakers at No.3 and LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers at No. 4.

International players make up approximately 20% of NBA rosters. Including Gasol, who comes from Spain, eight of the top 15 players on this best-selling jersey list are from Europe: Tony Parker (San Antonio Spurs/ France), Andrea Bargnani Toronto Raptors/(Italy), Jose Calderon (Toronto Raptors/Spain), Dirk Nowitzki (Dallas Mavericks/Germany), Rudy Fernandez (Portland Trailblazers/Spain), Marco Belinelli (Golden State Warriors/Italy) and Joakim Noah (Chicago Bulls/ France).
