Which jersey were basketball fans purchasing more of? Dwayne Wade's? Kobe? Kevin Durant?

You probably don't need a guess at this but yes, Lebron James' jersey is the best selling jersey in the world with Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose coming in second.

The Miami Heat star and four-time league MVP tops the NBA's global list of jersey sales for this past season, according to numbers released Tuesday. James -- who also has the top-selling jersey in the United States -- outsold Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls, Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers, Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder and Heat teammate Dwyane Wade for the No. 1 spot.

James said having the world's top-selling jersey "means everything" to him.

"To know that so many people look up to me, so many kids, that's what means more than anything, that I continue to inspire the youth and they look at me as a role model," James said after learning the news at Heat training camp in the Bahamas. "I understand, when you wear someone's jersey, you actually like believe in them. You believe they can do supernatural things. It's like an extension of our family, and I really appreciate that."

Lebron is taking over, as he should.
