The Warriors value as a franchise has made colossal gains from where they were even five years ago. Once a below average franchise, Forbes now has them as the NBA's third most valuable franchise in the NBA behind the Knicks and Lakers. A jump of this magnitude is unprecedented and just shows how far the Warriors have come as a franchise over the years.

Business Insider recently charted that rise to show just how unprecedented the growth of Golden State has been. While the average NBA team has seen a $1.3 billion growth, the Warriors value has increased as much as $2.6 billion.

As recently as 2011, the Warriors were valued below the NBA average, and as recently as 2006, the Warriors were listed at 25% below average.
