That LeBron James, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are three of the most influential athletes of today. All the boys who play basketball and soccer dream of having their movements inside a playing field and that is why they usually ask their parents to buy their match shirts, so that they can be them in each of their training sessions. Now, who's the one who sold the most T-shirts in the last time?
As for LeBron James, this Thursday it was confirmed that he is the player who sells the most jerseys in the NBA, above Luka Doncic, who's called to be the heir to the crown, is second, while Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry they're located in the third and fourth position respectively. Beyond the player in question, that although there was no result in sales numbers but it is estimated that it is a figure close to 50% of the total's with the 23 of the Lakers, the NBA also made a global balance. Unsurprisingly, no other franchise sold more apparel than the Los Angeles Lakers. Meanwhile, in second place is the Brooklyn Nets and the Golden State Warriors complete the podium.
In football, the equation is different since there is no one place where all the players' jerseys are sold, such as the NBA Store, so the breakdown is based on the sales made by each club in particular. In Barcelona, for example, between 60 and 70% of the shirts that Barça sells bear the name of Leo Messi. The absence of important players means that the little ones just want to be like the Rosario on a playing field.
Cristiano Ronaldo, finally, is a "machine for making income". It was just announced that he would sign with Juventus, in a matter of hours he sold more than a million shirts with the 7 on his back. Consequently, in the three years that he has been with the Turin entity, the Portuguese forward has already sold more than 3 million shirts, in all their sizes and models.
