The best player player in the NBA, Stephen Curry, not only set a record for most three-pointers made in a season (402), but he set a single-season merchandise record for gear sold at NBAstore.com. Via CSN Bay Area:
"Sales of Stephen Curry merchandise rose more than 250 percent over the past year, setting the NBAStore.com record for the best-selling player in a single season. Overall, NBAStore.com merchandise sales were up 16 percent versus last year."
Wonder who held the previous record? I’d guess LeBron, or maybe Yao Ming when he first entered the league?
From 73 wins to astronomical TV ratings to completing changing how teams play basketball in 2016, the Warriors are having one of the greatest all-around seasons in NBA history.
And I have contributed to Curry’s merch record-setting: I bought my two little kids Curry jerseys. I made my son wear his to school Thursday, the day after the Warriors set the NBA record for wins in a season.
