James Harden leads NBA in jersey sales since trade deadline
In news that shouldn’t come as any surprise, Fanatics announced yesterday that James Harden currently has the highest-selling jersey since the trade deadline, and the 76ers are also the top-selling team in that timeframe.
This isn’t surprising whatsoever. Harden was the most notable player to be moved during the trade deadline and headlined the sole blockbuster deal of the day. Nets fans aren’t rushing out of their houses to pick up Ben Simmons jerseys, and of course, Sixers fans want gear of their newest star.
Before the deal, Harden was outside the top-15 most sold jerseys, while the 76ers were the 8th most popular team.
Fanatics has yet to stock the jerseys it appears and is telling customers it will ship by April 1st, over a month from now. At the same time, they are nearly sold out, having just smalls and mediums available in men’s. They do, however, have their horribly produced Fanatics versions if you don’t want a Nike Swingman, but I’d highly recommend staying away from those.
Harden is expected to make his debut with the team later this week when the 76ers travel to Minnesota to play the Timberwolves on Friday night.
