*On top of Kobe Bryant’s problems from the past couple of days comes news that he is no longer the most popular NBA basketball player, well at least in jersey sales.

LeBron James’ No. 6 Miami Heat jersey is the league’s top seller for 2010-11, which means he knocks Bryant’s down to No. 2. But the drop comes after two years of the Lakers’ star sitting pretty in the top spot. James is number one again for the first time since his rookie year in 2004.

In other news , the attorney for the valet who is suing LeBron’s mom for assault and battery, told TMZ  that during the confrontation, Gloria James allegedly said to the valet, “You don’t know who I am, you fu**ing n**ger.  Tomorrow, you won’t have a job”

Angela L. Cohn, the attorney for valet Rockfeller Sorel, said Gloria James spewed the hateful remark just as the confrontation became physical.  Gloria James  was arrested after the incident, and as we reported yesterday, the valet is now suing her.
