    weird no knick in the top 15 of jerseys yet their #4 in team merchandise. Man if only NY was good they'd be selling like crazy.

    i am actually shocked to see shaq and gasol up in the top 15 because of how little time their jersey have been on sale. shaq moreso since phoenix lost in the first round and for some reason i dont picture him being a big seller anymore. i would see 10x as many kobe jerseys in LA as shaq jerseys during shaq's MVP and first championship season here.
