The king is back on his throne.

For the first time since April 2011, Miami Heat forward and reigning league MVP Lebron James sits atop the NBA’s top-selling jerseys list.

This is the third time in his career Lebron has had this distinction. He was ranked fourth back in April.

“It’s an honor to be No. 1. I would also like to thank all of my supporters and the Miami Heat organization. Let’s keep it going.”

Rounding out the top three for player jerseys are Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder (who jumped up from #8) and Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers (who has held the top spot six times in his career).

Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls was the number one selling jersey in the last sales report. He now sits at number four. Jeremy Lin, who was second, now finds himself outside of the top 15.

As for team jerseys, the New York Knicks land at number one, overtaking the Chicago Bulls, who fall to fourth. The Miami Heat and Los Angeles Lakers are second and third respectively.

The lists are based on sales at the NBA Store in New York and NBAStore.com from April through Nov. 26.
