The Warriors did not participate in the NBA's 2019-20 season restart in Orlando.

But basketball fans around the world certainly have not forgotten about Steph Curry.

The Warriors superstar had the sixth-most popular jersey when it came to NBAStore.com sales from July 30 through Sept. 28, the NBA announced Wednesday afternoon.

LeBron James, Luka Doncic, Anthony Davis, Jayson Tatum and Giannis Antetokounmpo finished in first to fifth place respectively.

The Warriors were No. 5 in team merchandise sales.

From October 2019 through the end of the calendar year, Curry had the third-highest selling jersey despite never taking the court in November and December due to a broken left hand.

The two-time NBA MVP was No. 1 in jersey sales from 2016 to 2018.

The basketball world cannot wait for Curry to suit up on opening night whenever the 2020-21 season finally begins.

"If you saw him right now physically -- and we don't put a whole lot out there on Instagram, there are reasons we don't -- he's getting even more chiseled than he's been in the past," his personal trainer Brandon Payne said last week on "The Habershow" podcast with NBC Sports NBA Insider Tom Haberstroh.

"He's getting stronger than he's been in the past, and he's moving with fluidity that we haven't seen from him."
