The average NBA team is also worth $1.9 billion, which is a 13 percent increase from last year.

The growth of the NBA is attributed to the booming local media deals, new arenas and the popularity of the game overseas.

For the fourth straight year, the New York Knicks are ranked as the league’s richest franchise at $4 billion. The Los Angeles Lakers are right behind the Knicks at $3.7 billion.

The Knicks are tied with the neighboring Yankees as the second most valuable sports franchise in the United States. All U.S. clubs are looking up at the Dallas Cowboys who are worth $5 billion.
