Once the Rams get their new stadium, I expect them to shoot up the list over the Lakers.

LoL @ Oakland A's sub 1 billion value in the affluent bay area market. Can we say over saturated sports market?

It's really intriguing to see the Browns being worth more than the Cavs...shows the popularity and power of the NFL.

The NFL really is king. Obviously, once "The King" retires or leaves again, the value will drop significantly, though merely having him, and especially if he manages to win a few more while here, the aura of that will keep the value hovering above other similar franchises for a LONG, LONG time.

And in Seattle, the Seahawks are valued above the Rams, but as another poster said, this could change in coming years.

Knicks worth more than the Lakers? Even though NYC is much bigger, the Knicks are scrubinos who have not been relevant since Patrick Ewing.

The NFL is king for an owner, but for athletes its NBA>NFL salary wise. The NFL revenue is double that of NBA's,
NFL teams' rosters are four times larger. NBA players get a larger slice of the pie.
