Every year around this time, NBA teams come running out from behind the curtain screaming, "Pay no attention to that Forbes report!"

A lot of it is probably conjecture on Forbes' part. After all, the Sacramento Kings are ranked 11th at $525 million only because of reports that;'s what the Ballmer-Hansen group are willing to spend to get a franchise back in Seattle.

So don't take these as gospel. These teams aren't for sale, so it's difficult to project what they're really worth. But at least it'll give you something to talk about today at lunch.
