Rose's jersey still a top seller

4/9/2013

Derrick Rose hasn't played a minute of game action this season, but his jersey remains one of the NBA's top sellers.

The Chicago Bulls star, who is still recovering from knee surgery in May 2012, had the fifth-best selling jersey at NBAStore.com and the NBA Store in New York from April 2012 to Nov. 26, the league announced on Tuesday. Rose trailed top seller Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks, LeBron James of the Miami Heat, Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder and Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers.

Coming off an MVP season in 2010-11, Rose had the league's top-selling jersey last year and was second behind Bryant in international jersey sales for the 2011-12 season.

The Bulls also ranked fifth in team merchandise sales this season.
