NBA Basketball: The Season Begins

For basketball fans, only a few more weeks to go! The NBA regular season will be kicking off on Tuesday, October 29th, where the Miami Heat will be facing the Chicago Bulls and the return of Derrick Rose. Also facing off on that first day will be the Clippers and the Lakers in a battle of Los Angeles. In this game Kobe Bryant will return from his Achilles injury last season.

Speaking of the Los Angeles basketball, the LA Lakers are on top of the list for the NBA’s most valuable teams. Second next to the New York Knicks, who are valued at $1.1 billion and have a $83 million profit, the Lakers are sitting pretty at a $1 billion value and $48 million profit. Furthermore, these numbers are from last season, and with the Lakers new $3.6 billion television deal with Time Warner Cable, revenue should only rise.

You may be surprised, but the Miami Heat are #3 in value in the NBA behind the Knicks, Lakers, Bulls, Celtics, and Mavericks. They are worth $625 million, and profit $15 million. The team’s television rating was the second best in the league last year, and with their winning record on fire, and LeBron James better than ever, those numbers might just rise in 2014. Compared to the problems some NBA teams are having, the Miami Heat do

great in attendance and ticket sales. Coming in third place for the 2013 attendance report, the Heat averaged 19,536 people per game. And being that the American Airlines Arena has a total capacity of 19,600, I’d say that’s pretty good.
