NEW YORK -- Dwyane Wade is on top of the NBA in another category -- sales of his jersey.

The MVP of the NBA finals had the league's most popular jersey this season, based on sales at the NBA store in New York and on NBAstore.com.

LeBron James ranked second in jersey sales, followed by Kobe Bryant and Allen Iverson.

Wade was in New York on Thursday, where he appeared at the NBA store to tape a segment for NBA TV and take questions from fans. He
also appeared as a guest on "Live with Regis and Kelly."

Wade's Miami Heat teammate, Shaquille O'Neal, ranked fifth on the most popular jersey list.

The Heat wrapped up their first championship by beating Dallas on Tuesday, and NBAstore.com had its highest-grossing day on Wednesday. Sales on the site were 41 percent higher than the previous highest day, which followed Detroit's title clincher in June 2004.
