Durant is quickly gaining notoriety and is the youngest scoring champion in NBA history, but he has yet to crack the top 15 in NBA jersey sales in Europe.
Based on sales from retail locations across Europe during the 2009-10 season, the most popular jerseys are as follows. Note the regional slant:
1. Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers; 2. LeBron James, Cleveland (now at Miami); 3. Dwyane Wade, Miami; 4. Pau Gasol, Lakers; 5. Kevin Garnett, Boston; 6. Andrea Bargnani, Toronto; 7. Jose Calderon, Toronto; 8. Dwight Howard, Orlando; 9. Dirk Nowitzki, Dallas; 10. Tony Parker, San Antonio; 11. Danilo Gallinari, New York; 12. Joakim Noah, Chicago; 13. Chris Paul, New Orleans; 14. Paul Pierce, Boston; 15. Carmelo Anthony, Denver.
Perhaps being named MVP at the FIBA World Championship in Turkey this summer will spike future sales for Durant.
Guards James Harden and Daequan Cook knocked heads during Thursday's practice. Both were examined and did not return. Their status for today's scrimmage is uncertain.... Until the Ford Center is renamed, the Thunder and NBA officially will refer to the facility as "Oklahoma City arena."... Single-game tickets for the first half of the season (through the Jan. 13 game against Orlando) go on sale Monday and can be purchased online at all Ticketmaster outlets, including Oklahoma City Homeland stores; and at the arena box office.
