Rose second in international jersey sales


The NBA has released its list of top-selling jerseys internationally for the first time, and Derrick Rose ranks second behind Kobe Bryant for the 2011-12 season.

Rose, who had the top-selling jersey in the United States this season, is second in China and Europe and third in Latin America.

The NBA bases its list on sales data from adidas locations outside the United States.

Bryant was also No. 1 in China for a sixth straight year and led the way in Europe and Latin America. Rounding out the top five sellers internationally were the Miami Heat's LeBron James, the Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett and the Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard.
