It's a pretty simple analysis—Google searches aren't a perfect indicator of what people are interested in—but it passes the smell test, with LeBron James as the most popular search overall and the default No. 1 for many states.

For a complete breakdown of popularity by sport, team, and position, go check out Andrew's blog post.
