The Dallas Mavericks have won ten of their last 12 games, and they are just starting to hit their stride. Superstar Luka Doncic had arguably his best performance of the season in Wednesday’s win over the Raptors. The 22-year-old superstar is locking in and playing hard on both ends of the floor.
Luka remains one of the most popular players in the league too. He is third among Western Conference guards in All-Star fan votes and has the eighth-most votes in the conference. That does not tell the entire story of Luka’s popularity, though.
The NBA released the players and teams who sold the most merchandise in the first half of the season on Jan. 21, and Doncic found himself in the top five. Here is a look at the returns.
Luka Doncic has the 5th highest selling jersey in first half of 2021-2022 season
The league releases the players and teams who top the merchandise sales a few times a year. For the first half of the season, LeBron James led the league in sales with Stephen Curry, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kevin Durant, and Luka rounding out the top five. Doncic has ranked as high as second and is becoming a staple in the top five. The 22-year-old superstar is unquestionably one of the most popular players in the league.
The Dallas Mavericks ranked tenth among teams in merchandise sales. They should only improve as they continue to climb the standings. Their commitment to defense makes them a dangerous team that nobody is looking forward to matching up against in the playoffs.
Fans need to get out and buy their Mavs gear. Get a Luka Doncic jersey and a Mavericks hat, so both the superstar and the team can move up in the rankings. MFFLs won’t want to miss a game down the stretch as Dallas attempts to jump into the top four in the Western Conference, and they can keep it locked to The Smoking Cuban for all the latest.
