Those are just the sales for a week. It can very well be that the One Piece volume is longer out since Naruto's and therefor has leveled off at lower sales now
You would need to know the exact publishing dates to make accurate comparsions (e.g. Naruto's and OP's sales in week #3 after they were published which isn't the same week for both of them).

In Bon's case it's chosen since he, as a tranny, got no female agent on his side. Wheareas all male agents are called "Mr. x" (x = number) all female agents are "Mrs. y" (y = holiday). Therefore, Bon's called "Mr. 2 - Bon Kurei", combining both those elements. ^^
Regarding the tankou sales numbers, it's no secret that One Piece is currently the most popular series in Japan. Newest volume charted for like..6(?) weeks in the Oricon top 30 with over 1.7 Mio. books sold.
NANA? eh... I never thought a shoujo manga could compete in the same level with shounen when it came to sales. especially because shoujo like Nana get churned out once a month. hmm.. interesting.
Nana's huge. Nodame Cantabile, Full Metal Alchemist, and Naruto are the only other million sellers; all three are a bit behind OP and Nana.
Nana kicks Naruto in the ass loooooooooll
I always loved that show...Shojo power
People are forgetting Bleach as well. That's got a million sellers, but I doubt it will sell more then Naruto or any other manga which has sold more then naruto.

One Piece will over take Dragon Ball within 2 years just by sheer length. It will PROBABLY be the best selling manga of all time. Once it gets past Dragon Ball, I don't think that it will ever fall behind again. Kochikame MAY end up selling more than either, but that's a matter of whether or not it actually lasts so long that it can outsell One Piece, which should last for another 8-10 years, hopefully. Kochikame DOES have a pretty good chance of outselling Dragon Ball, but again, that's due to sheer volume. the series is over 160 volumes long, after all.
Naruto has a CHANCE of beating Slam Dunk, but that's it, and even that's a bit of a long shot. But either way, it's the 5th best selling Jump series in history, and that's something to be proud of. Then again, it may eventually feel a threat from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, thanks again to sheer volume. That tends to help with volume sale numbers.
Naruto could outsell Slam Dunk if it continues selling at it's current pace. Maybe two more years worth of volumes to join the 100,000,000 club.
I love slam dunk.
btw guys, speaking of length and stuff, isn't Ippo super long as well? like 800 chaps or something?
