The NBA is growing and thriving like never before and it’s not hard to envision a world where the value of NBA franchises eventually exceeds their NFL counterparts.

According to a 2018 Forbes report, the average NBA team is now worth a record $1.65 billion — a 22 percent increase from 2017. Forbes’ 2017 report on NFL team values pegged the average franchise at $2.5 billion — only an eight percent jump from 2016.

For the first time in league history, every NBA team is now worth at least $1 billion and the Denver Nuggets are one of many franchises to see their value skyrocket year over year.
