LeBron James continues to win on the hardwood, and at life. The numbers are in, and the NBA has announced King James’ No. 6 Miami Heat jersey as the top-selling in the league for 2012-13 – both domestic and worldwide.

“To know that so many people look up to me, so many kids, that’s what means more than anything, that I continue to inspire the youth and they look at me as a role model,” James said, via the Associated Press. “I understand, when you wear someone’s jersey, you actually like believe in them. You believe they can do supernatural things. It’s like an extension of our family and I really appreciate that.”

His Heat teammate, Dwayne Wade, cracked the top five. Superstars Derrick Rose, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant came in at No. 2, 3 and 4, respectively. New York Knicks high-scorer Carmelo Anthony had actually surpassed Bron for the top spot at one point, but sank to sixth in the final rankings.

Interestingly, while James led the world and States in jersey sales, the repeat NBA champ was not quite as dominant in Latin America or Europe. Those regions have apparently been reserved for D-Rose, despite sitting out the entire year with a torn ACL.

Below is the full list of global and domestic jersey sales.
