The Bucket is the most popular player in the NBA at this moment in time.
After a 37-point (14-21 shooting, 5-10 3PT) performance in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Tyler Herro has the best-selling NBA jersey in the world right now.
According to Darren Rovell of the Action Network, Herro had the No. 1 player jersey on Fanatics and their network of sites, including the NBA Store.

Behind 2-1, the Boston Celtics found themselves in a must-win situation, needing to avoid a 3-1 hole. Despite taking on a desperate team, Herro and the Heat found a way to hold off the Celtics, pulling off the 112-109 win.
As for the former Wildcat specifically – who also added six rebounds and three assists – he became the youngest player since Magic Johnson to record at least 37 points in a playoff game. It’s also the most points ever by a rookie coming off the bench in a Conference Finals game.
His historic playoff performance comes in the midst of Herro averaging 16.8 points, 5.3 rebounds and 3.9 assists in 21 games in the 2020 NBA Bubble, including six games with 20 points or more.
While Herro’s Heat jersey is No. 1 in the world right now, Herro’s Whitnall High School jersey is No. 1 in Jimmy Butler’s wardrobe.
