6. Dallas Mavericks

The defending champion Dallas Mavericks, like the Miami Heat, are one of eight NBA teams that netted a combined $150 million last season, while the league says the other 22 teams lost $450 million.

With the belief that some of the have-nots will actually do better by not playing games, there's an argument to be made that the guys that have the most to lose are owners such as Mark Cuban, whose fans are ready to provide him with what might be his biggest revenue year yet.
