John Wall's jersey ranks as one of the most popular in the NBA

John Wall's jersey ranks as one of the most popular in the NBA

The top 15 most popular NBA jerseys list was revealed on Thursday with Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry sitting atop the list.

Many of the names on the list aren't surprising with LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Russell Westbrook right behind Curry.

However, just outside the top 10 is John Wall, who is coming off of the best season of his career. 

Wall ended up ranked No. 12 in the entire NBA in jersey sales.

Although he failed to make the list last season, Wall continued to develop his popularity with a successful season and a high level of performance. 

Now, Wall has become one of the most popular players in the league and helped lead the Wizards to the playoffs.

He beat out some big name players to make the list and ranks ahead of the likes of stars Jimmy Butler and Damian Lillard.

As Wall's popularity continues to grow, look for the young guard to see his name rise in the jersey sales list next season.

Jonas Siegenthaler moving to North America for the upcoming season

Jonas Siegenthaler moving to North America for the upcoming season

One of the biggest questions about Capitals prospect Jonas Siegenthaler is how he will adjust to the North American game. The good news is he should have plenty of time to work on it in the 2017-18 season.

Siegenthaler told CSN Mid-Atlantic on Wednesday that he will make the full-time switch from Europe to North America for the upcoming season.

Siegenthaler, 20, spent the majority of the past two seasons playing in his native Switzerland. Adjusting to the North American game is something all European players have to deal with, but questions about Siegenthaler’s ability to do so have sprung up after his brief stings with the Hershey Bears.

“Here it's a lot quicker,” Siegenthaler said, comparing the North American game to what he is used to in Europe. “You can't always look for a good, nice pass. Sometimes you just have to rim it or chip it out. That's the biggest difference. You don't do that in Europe. That's what I have to learn.”

Siegenthaler was a standout during the 2016 World Junior Championship tournament playing for Switzerland. He is one of the Capitals’ most highly touted prospects, but he has not been able to show that potential in his time in Hershey. It also did not help that he was dealing with a family issue during Capitals’ training camp in 2016.

There is no better way to adjust to the North American game than to play it full-time. That makes the move to Hershey for next season the best thing for Siegenthaler's development. It also puts added pressure on him in development camp where he can work with the Caps’ and Bears’ coaching staff.

“It's pretty important,” Siegenthaler said. “It's a new chance to show what I can do, how I play."
