Noah ranks among All-Stars

According to a list released Thursday by the NBA, center Joakim Noah’s jersey (#13) is the 14th best-selling jersey in Europe among all NBA players.

“I think it’s cool to have one of the best-selling jersey in Europe,” Noah said. “I’m also European, so I think that helps a little.”

Noah was born in New York but spent much of his childhood in France before attending high school and college in the United States. His father, of course, is France tennis star (turned musician) Yannick Noah.

Kobe Bryant has the best-selling jersey in Europe followed by Kevin Garnett, Pau Gasol, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.
