Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons earn spots in top 15 for most popular NBA jerseys

When you take a look at the current NBA standings, the Sixers are 3rd in the division and 6th in the east - and for some reason, it's being treated like it's the end of the world - even though there's still half a season left.

It's mind boggling.

Anyway, a new standing was released today, one that ranks the two most notable players for the Sixers in the top 15 of the league when it comes to the most popular NBA jerseys.

Out of 450 athletes? It's quite an impressive feat.

Both Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons cracked the list with Embiid coming in at 9th overall and Simmons 11th. Their names are among the most notable and elite in the game - including LeBron James, James Harden, Kawhi Leonard and more.

These results are based on NBAStore.com sales from Oct. 2019 through Dec. 2019.
