    Though the Dallas Mavericks don't have the best record for this season, they are still topping the charts -- in a business sense.

    Forbes ranked the Mavs as the fifth most valuable franchise in the NBA behind the New York Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers, Chicago Bulls, and Boston Celtics.

    The group estimates the Mavs are worth around $685 million.
