The Cowboys owner
He does not own an NBA team, although he was a part-owner of the L.A. Lakers for several years.
no, I think that the Los angles Lakers are the richest NBA team as they have a celebrity fan base and sell out crowds almost evergy gme and under Dr. Jerry Buss hadn't had an season in which they lost money and barely few losing seasons.
The New York knicks are the most valuable franchise in the NBA currentley.
AS of November 2014, the richest NBA player is LeBron James.

I don't know where this preception of Steinbrunner being the richest owner has come from but it's simply incorrect. Before his death, Steinbrunner was worth an approximate $1.3 Billion according to Forbes. Wealthy, but no where near some other owners. Currently the richest single owner in North American professional sports is Paul Allen (Net Worth: $13.5 Billion) who owns the Portland Trailblazers (NBA) and Seattle Seahawks (NFL). The richest prospective owner (meaning someone who has shown interest of acquiring an professional sports property but has not been able to secure a deal for one yet) that I know of is David Tompson (Net Worth: $19 billion) who is working towards getting an NHL team for the Canadian city of Winnipeg, Manitoba. The richest owner outright is the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan who own 66% of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment which in turn owns the Toronto Maple Leafs (NHL), Toronto Raptors (NBA), and Toronto FC (MLS) along with the minor league club the Toronto Marlies (AHL). The OTPP' estimated assets exceeds $96.4 Billion.
