According to an annual report put out by Forbes magazine, NBA teams don’t have to be very good to be worth a lot of money as three out of the top five most valuable franchises currently have a losing record.

In fact, the number one NBA team – the New York Knicks – is arguably the most dysfunctional team in all of professional sports.

  • New York Knicks - $3.3 billion – losers
  • Los Angeles Lakers - $3 billion – losers
  • Golden State Warriors - $2.6 billion – winners
  • Chicago Bulls - $2.5 billion – losers
  • Boston Celtics - $2.2 billion – winners (MarketWatch)
