The Chicago Bulls haven't had a lot of success on the court over the a year ago, but off the court the team is still on firm financial footing, according to a new valuation of National Basketball Association franchises.

But the poor form and off-court soap operas have done nothing to diminish the Knicks' money-spinning value, according to Forbes.

But it is mostly market size and long-term staying power that drive these rankings, with the Chicago Bulls fourth at $2.5bn and the Boston Celtics fifth at $2.2bn.

They could threaten the Knicks and Lakers for the NBA's top valuation after they open the $1 billion Chase Center in the Mission Bay neighborhood, targeted for the 2019-2020 season.

Thomas Meunier surged forward from right-back and set up Cavani, who thumped home his 34th goal of the season in all competitions. It's fair to say no one saw that coming. "They have top quality players; they made some good signings in January", Gomes said.

Valued at $1.8 billion, the Nets are seventh place, the same ranking as past year.

On the flip side, winning can pay dividends, the Golden State Warriors are up to number three at $2.6bn after their back-to-back runs to the NBA Finals. For the cost of $3 billion, you can acquire the team that used to employ Kobe Bryant, the rights to sell courtside seats for $2,750 per game, and the privilege to play in front of Jack Nicholson every so often.

The title of lowest-valued team belongs to the New Orleans Pelicans, worth a paltry $750 million in comparison to the top of the scale.

"Fueling the gains are the NBA's $24 billion media deal with ESPN and TNT that kicked off this season, a new collective bargaining agreement ensuring seven years of labor peace and massive global opportunities", writes the aforementioned Badenhausen.
