Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors has the best-selling jersey in the NBA. People are buying his No. 30 jersey more than any other. This year marks the first time in Curry’s professional career that he has been able to top the sales list.

Curry’s rise to the top comes as no surprise. His achievements during the 2014-15 NBA season are not to be forgotten. Last season, he solidified himself as not only one of the greatest players in the league but a fan favorite as well.

Curry had lots of individual success. He was the leading vote-getter for the All-Star Game. He broke the NBA record for the most 3-pointers made in a season; a record that was already his. He was also named the league MVP.

His success doesn’t stop there, though. As a team, Curry and the rest of the Warriors finished the regular season winning a league-best 67 games. By doing so, they secured the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference playoffs. They went on to face the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals, a series they won in six games. After defeating the Cavs, Curry and the Warriors became NBA champions. Including the postseason, the Warriors only lost a total of four home games.

Curry’s jersey sales top those of other All-Star players, including LeBron James (No. 2 in sales), Derrick Rose (No. 3 in sales) and Kyrie Irving (No. 4 in sales). Curry’s teammate Klay Thompson is No. 5 in jersey sales.

Stephen Curry was born in Akron, Ohio and grew up in Charlotte, N.C. He played college basketball at Davidson College before turning pro in 2009. He was taken by the Golden State Warriors with the seventh overall pick in the NBA draft. He is 27 years old.
