Lakers bump Knicks as Most Valuable #NBA Team!

@SportsBata ..nuff said

According to a Forbes report released earlier today, the Lakers knocked the Knicks out of the top spot as the #NBA Most Valuable Team with an estimated worth of $900 Million! The value of the Lakers soared 40% due to the blockbuster 20-year deal with Time Warner Cable! The Knicks, who are having contract issues with TWC, stand second and still rose 19% to $780 Million! The average #NBA Team is worth $393 Million, which is up 6.5% from last year! The increase is associated with both the signing of the new CBA agreement and TV deals done in December! Check out the chart of the top 10 Teams!
