He may not be having the most memorable season of his career, but when it comes to game-worn NBA jerseys, LeBron James remains the biggest seller.
A jersey worn by James in the first half of this year’s NBA All-Star Game sold for $88,907 late last week at NBA Auctions–over $30,000 more than the one donned by the game’s MVP, Kevin Durant and nearly four times as much as fellow team captain and leading scorer Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Team LeBron beat team Giannis 178-164 in the 68th edition of the game, held on February 17 in Charlotte.
The annual jersey auction generated over $420,000 in winning bids for 26 shirts donned by some of the NBA’s best players and a pair of retiring stars.
The top ten sellers included:
- LeBron James $88,907
- Steph Curry $79, 907
- Kevin Durant $57,907
- Dwyane Wade $30,353
- James Harden $25,002
- Giannis Antetokounmpo $23,100
- Ben Simmons $14,660
- Dirk Nowitzki $12,020
- Russell Westbrook $9,020
- Paul George $9,020
Also sold at auction were two game-used basketballs from the gathering in Charlotte. One used in the fourth quarter during a furious comeback by Team LeBron netted $9,680 while the ball used from the opening tip to the first timeout sold for a relatively modest $1,020.
