Revenue*: $376 mil

Operating income*: $141 mil

The Knicks are the NBA’s most valuable team for a second straight year. The Knicks have been shut out of the playoffs since 2013, but they are reaping the rewards of a $1 billion renovation to MSG, which produced new revenue opportunities. The team turned an NBA-record operating profit of $141 million last season despite a record of 32-50.

*Revenue and income are for the 2015-16 season

Current value: $3.0 bil

Revenue: $333 mil

Operating income: $119 mil

Last season marked the end of an era with the retirement of Kobe Bryant, who spent 20 years in purple and gold and finished third all-time in NBA scoring. It was the worst season in franchise history on the court with a 17-65 record (the previous year was second worst), but the team still cashed in with fans eager to get one last glimpse of No. 24.

Current value: $2.6 bil

Revenue: $305 mil

Operating income: $74.2 mil

On its way to the best regular season record in NBA history, the team posted the league's highest average cable TV rating (9.76) during the 2015-16 season, more than double the previous season. The value of the Warriors is up a league-high 37% and the team could challenge the Lakers and Knicks for the NBA's highest revenue in their new arena, which broke ground in January. The season ticket waiting list was at 32,000 to start the current season with the renewal rate at 99.5%.

Current value: $2.5 bil

Revenue: $232 mil

Operating income: $45.5 mil

The Bulls led the NBA in attendance during the 2015-16 season for the seventh straight year, averaging 21,820 fans per game at the United Center. Perhaps because the team missed the playoffs, Chicago's average cable television rating on CSN Chicago fell 37%, to 2.96. It was the second sharpest year-over-year decline in ratings in the NBA.

Current value: $2.2 bil

Revenue: $200 mil

Operating income: $60.1 mil

In January, the Celtics became the third NBA team to land a jersey sponsorship deal when it inked a pact with GE, which moved its headquarters to Boston last year. The industrial conglomerate will also become the team's exclusive data and analytics partner. The Celtics franchise has won a record 17 NBA titles.

Current value: $2.0 bil

Revenue: $185 mil

Operating income: -$11.8 mil

In September, the Clippers and Fox Sports Prime Ticket announced that they had reached an agreement to extend their exclusive television deal. The six-year extension will earn the Clippers around $50 million to $55 million per season beginning with the 2016-17 season, roughly double the $[...]
