NEW YORK — Carmelo Anthony now tops the NBA's scoring race and its most popular jerseys list.

Anthony took over the No. 1 spot on the league's sales list Tuesday, moving past MVP LeBron James and becoming the first Knicks player at the top since the first list was released in 2001-02.

Anthony was No. 4 last year on the list, which is based on sales at the NBA Store in New York and on since last November. The reigning Eastern Conference player of the week edged past Kevin Durant in the scoring race after averaging 41.8 points last week.

Durant was third on the jersey sales list, followed by seven-time No. 1 Kobe Bryant and Derrick Rose.

The Knicks remained first in team sales, followed by Miami and the Lakers.
