WALTHAM The Boston Celtics are one of the NBA's most popular teams.

Need proof?

Look no further than the NBA's top-selling jerseys list, which was released on Thursday.

The Celtics became the first team ever to have five players ranked among the top-15 jerseys sold.

And the Celtics as a franchise finished second overall to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Among Boston players, Rajon Rondo topped the list and ranked No. 3 overall. In addition to Rondo, he was joined on the list by Shaquille O'Neal (12th), Ray Allen (13th), Paul Pierce (14th) and Kevin Garnett (15th). Miami's LeBron James was No. 1 on the list.

The NBA's top-selling list of jerseys is based on sales on NBAStore.com from the start of the 2010-2011 NBA season.
