What are these Lego basket ball players on amazon all about?! Why are they so cheap? Shouldn’t these be really expensive? Are they new? What is happening?

Dear Justin,

After the unexpected success of LEGO Soccer sets, The LEGO Group expanded their sports lines to include NBA sets in 2003.

These licensed sets were produced in large numbers that did not meet market demands.  This is why the sets and figures are still affordable.
