Every year, ESPN releases its "Ultimate Standings", a ranking that measures "how much MLB, NBA, NFL and NHL franchises give back to the fans in exchange for all the time, money and emotion the fans invest in them." This year, the top NBA team is the Orlando Magic (#2 overall behind the NFL's Saints), who also came in as their #1 overall franchise in "Bang for the Buck" (wins per fan-related revenue). Other NBA teams of note were the Spurs (#7 overall), Cavs (#10 overall), Mavs (#24 overall), and Thunder (#25 overall). To see the whole list, click here.
