 The average market value of NBA teams rose to 1.9 billion years, up 13percent for the first MLB team.


In the four major North American sports leagues, the status of the NBA has risen again. The average market value of the team is still behind the NFL ($2.6 billion), which has already led MLB and NHL ($630 million). The annual growth rate of NBA team market value reached 13%, which is also the highest in the four major leagues.

Meanwhile, the average annual salary of NBA players is over $7.7 million, the highest in all professional sports leagues.

Experts believe that the NBA can achieve such a large growth rate, and achieve the anti-MLB surpass, the main reasons for several aspects. One is the success of social network operation. MLB has strict restrictions on video copyright, and the media has great restrictions on the dissemination of game videos on social network.

At the same time, the style and look of the game is not as exciting as the NBA, plus the ability to create stars is not as good as the NBA, so the popularity naturally declines. In ESPNs list of the top 100 players in the world this season, only one MLB star is at work, but there are 16 NBA stars. In addition, on the basis of people, the basketball population of the United States has an advantage over the baseball population. Basketball equipment, venues, tours and other costs are lower than baseball, so over the years, the loss of baseball population has also led to the loss of MLB fans. Surveys show that less than 7% of people under 55 in the United States now regard baseball as their favorite sport. Although MLB is still a very wealthy league, according to the current trend, it is afraid to open a wider gap with the NBA.
