The Lakers retired Bryant's No. 8 and 24 jerseys.

Quinn Cook had 22 points for the Lakers while James added 19, but it was Markelle Fultz (21 points) who got the key scores, a pair of two pointers in the last minute securing the win for Orlando. Results are based on NBAStore.com sales from October 2019 through December 2019.

No purchase figures were given for a team, player or items. James has been leading the Lakers this season, who are leading the Western Conference with a 34-8 win-loss record.

Five-time NBA Most Valuable Player James led Slovakian star Doncic by only 82,001 votes a week ago but has pulled away to pace the Western Conference with 4,747,887 while Greek star Antetokounmpo leads the East on 4,474,107.

Lakers: 9-1, averaging 119.5 points, 47.4 rebounds, 26.3 assists, 8.7 steals and 7.3 blocks per game while shooting 49.9 percent from the field. James outperformed Bryant during this Lakers trip and became the third best scorer in the league's history.

James, Lakers teammate Anthony Davis and Los Angeles Clippers playmaker Kawhi Leonard are runaway leaders for the West frontcourt spots while Doncic and James Harden have huge leads in the West guard balloting from fans.

Ben Simmons of Philadelphia was 11th, followed by injured Kevin Durant, who left the Warriors for the Nets, Russell Westbrook in Houston, Kemba Walker in Boston and the injured rookie Zion Williamson of New Orleans, who is yet to make his National Basketball Association regular debut.

On the team merchandise list, the Lakers are followed by the Celtics (No. 2), Philadelphia 76ers (No. 3), Toronto Raptors (No. 4) and Bucks (No. 5). The Warriors are 6th followed in order by the Rockets, Bulls, Heat and Nets, which reached the top 10 for the first time since 2014.
