The Dallas Mavericks are once again one of the most valuable teams in the NBA, according to Forbes.

The Los Angeles Lakers sit atop the basketball universe after winning their 17th championship Sunday night.

Despite the team's historical success and its position in one of the world's largest media markets, the Lakers are not the most valuable NBA franchise, according to Forbes' annual rankings of the most valuable NBA franchises.

The Dallas Mavericks once again notched a spot among the Top 10 most valuable teams.

There is a correlation between winning and franchise value, and the Mavericks are set up to be a contender through the 2020s after the emergence of star guard Luka Doncic, who earned First Team All-NBA recognition this season. Doncic turned 21 in February.

As a whole, the value of NBA teams skyrocketed this year. NBA franchises saw their value increase an average of 13 percent year-over-year, according to Forbes, and every franchise's value increased by at least 6 percent. The Toronto Raptors, who won the 2018-19 NBA championship, saw their value increase the most year-over-year at 25 percent.
