Forbes.com: The Most and Least Profitable NBA Teams

The Most And Least Profitable NBA Teams

The NBA's biggest financial winners and losers highlight the value of playing in a major market. The five most profitable teams are from some of the most populated metro areas in the country. The Dallas Mavericks are an exception to the rule: the team ranks among the league's biggest losers despite playing in the fourth-largest metro area.

These teams are the most and least profitable NBA teams over the past five seasons. The top five teams averaged a profit of $37 million over the past five years, and the bottom five lost an average $10 million. The league average during the same period was $8 million in profit. (Getty Images)
