Biggest surprises to me are the Rams displacing the Patriots as the no. 2 most valued NFL franchise, and Golden State displacing the Lakers as the no. 2 most valued NBA franchise. On the flip side, looks like the Red Sox overtook the Dodgers who had pushed their way up to no. 2. Everything else checks outs.

Broken out by sport:

NFL
1. DAL Cowboys
2. LA Rams
3. NE Patriots
4. NY Giants
5. SF 49ers

MLB
1. NY Yankees
2. Bos Red Sox
3. LA Dodgers
4. Chi Cubs
5. SF Giants

NBA
1. NY Knicks
2. GS Warriors
3. LA Lakers
4. BK Nets
5. Chi Bulls

I yawn at any story where the team presents itself in a light that portrays themselves as eager to stay. I understand your nostalgia as I have lots of great memories as a kid watching their games, but they are a business and don't really care about us fans.
Imagine what the Washington Commander’s would be worth if Daniel Synder didn’t own the team driving the franchise into the ground for the last 20 years.

Nets are ahead of the Bulls, now? If it wasn't for the Bulls becoming irrelevant after MJ(and doing more in the early 2010s, when they had Derrick Rose, Luol(sp?) Deng, etc), I wonder if they'd still at least be ahead of the Nets, if not Lakers. Interesting Lakers fell behind the Warriors, as of late.

And I wonder how the Cowboys are still #1 for NFL teams, despite being irrelevant for years(when it comes to playoffs and etc). I get they have a big fan base(a la Redskins/Commanders), and I wonder if that's what keeps them at #1?

Well, they are "America's Team" and probably own 75% of the Texas market.. That's 20M+ fans in a football crazy State.

And, they've been the most televised and widely available football franchise for decades over. It's a brand as much as it is a football team.

I'd venture at least a third of the Knicks' value is Dolan owning MSG. They're also mostly in a one-team market, since most city residents (including Brooklynites) are Knicks fans. The Warriors also got a massive boost once Chase was built.
John Fisher is doing just enough to keep the A's alive so he can move them to Vegas. If this were Europe, the A's would be relegated to AAA and he wouldn't be able to pocket all that shared revenue.

I live in the Houston metro, and there are a lot of Cowboys fans here.

I got into a conversation the other day at a Houston FedEx Office location with a staffer who is from the Bay Area (SF Bay Area, not Houston's Bay Area), and she has been a lifelong Cowboys fan .

Even with as many fond Coliseum memories as I have, I hope that happens.
