No. Forbes' annual NHL/NBA/MLB/NFL Franchise valuations are annual fluff pieces designed to sell magazines attract eyeballs and advertising clicks.

Take their numbers with a large grain of salt. Their numbers are their estimates. They have no special access to League or Team financials. There have been many cases of teams disputing the numbers as being grossly inaccurate.
