Mamba bigger than Yao in China? Wow! Go figure… Kobe Bryant’s No. 24 Lakers jersey was the top-selling NBA jersey in China this year, according to a press release from the NBA.


    How about some respect now from the NBA and Refs for the black MAMBA!!!! This Olympics have not only showed the NBA, TIME Magazine, and Steve “the hatter” Hartman of how much the world love Kobe but everyone that said LaBron is the most popular.

    Maybe now Kobe will get calls and not get so many technicals.

    as a laker fan, im saying “yay, go kobe!!!”

    as a person who looks at every nit-picky thing, i would say, “just cuz kb’s jersey was the top selling jersey, doesnt mean hes more popular. yao has been on houston for like (5?) years, and hes never changed his jersey number. so people in china who bought it in the last 5 years would probably not buy it again. kb, on the other hand, changed his jersey number, and more and more people are buying his “new” jersey. therefore, he has the higher sales.”

    but in any case, kobe is kobe, and wherever his jersey is being sold, there will be MANY people who are willing to buy it.

    I agree, but different number or not, Kobe is still one of the more popular athletes in China, he was getting mugged by the chinese folks, and having MVP chants and stuff.
