Russell Westbrook's jersey just outsold Kevin Durant's

Thunder look ahead to next season

Russell Westbrook speaks Thursday to the media during a news conference in Oklahoma City.

The NBA has released jersey sales numbers from the previous fiscal year, and they came somewhat of a surprise: Russell Westbrook's jersey outsold Kevin Durant's.

According to the NBA's release, Westbrook owned the sixth-best selling jersey this past year. Durant finished eighth. Those two, specifically, helped the Oklahoma City Thunder jump to fifth in overall merchandise sales.

Of course, with Durant darting for the Golden State Warriors, that could all change in the upcoming season. It's possible the Thunder take the biggest hit of any team to their merchandise sales.

OKC trailed the Chicago Bulls (fourth), Los Angeles Lakers (third), Golden State Warriors (second) and Cleveland Cavaliers (first).

Stephen Curry, the two-time reigning MVP, unsurprisingly finished the year with the most popular NBA jersey. He was followed by LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Kyrie Irving, Klay Thompson, Westbrook, Draymond Green, Durant, Kawhi Leonard and Derrick Rose.

Outside the star-studded top 10 was Tim Duncan, Dwyane Wade, Damian Lillard, Andre Iguodala and rookie Kristaps Porzingis.
