    Default Raptors ranked 21st in Forbes' valuations

    Nothing really news-worthy here. Just displaying how the Raptors compare to the rest of the league from a financial viewpoint.

    Actually, I would say this IS news worthy considering just last year the Raps were ranked #10 in the league by Forbes, with a value of $399M. While their value has actually increased to $405M, they managed to drop over 10 spots in the list. Thats pretty wild.
    I guess with the $500M sale of the Kings, things got a little out of whack?

    It would be interesting to see how/what Forbes split out for the Raptors, from all the resources & assets that are owned by MLSE and shared with the Leafs and every other event at the ACC. How could they value the Raptors alone, considering they are just a piece of the pie owned and operated by MLSE (especially with involvement by Rogers and Bell, Canada's media giants)?

    Not sure how to interpret this since im not a numbers guy

    So, am i correct with this:
    Raps are making money, but not as much compared to 20 (majority) as other teams in the league
    Do these numbers reflect attendance meaning higher on the list, higher attendance
    It seems 20-30, only one team has a winning franchise, is that bad?

    This ranking is totally inconsistent with their rankings last year, which would be fine if there had been some major change to the relative value of the Raptors. However, I don't know of anything that would have done so. I don't see how the Kings potential sale could come into play, as they'd either treat it as an outlier due to the intense demand in Seattle, or use it as a guideline when valuing the rest of the teams (which would include the Raptors).

    TL;DR -> I don't understand market valuations.

    No, in the Raptors case, my guess is that the purchase price paid by Bell/Rogers was allocated at $300M to the Raptors, so, the valuation is the $300M, plus Tanenbaum's piece of ~$100M, plus some incremental change since the summer.

    This means that the $399M by Forbes last year was pretty much bang on.
