Smartest Spenders in Sports?

What team gets the most value from their payroll in terms of winning? Could the authors have an interest in getting the Lakers on top? They appear to give a bit too much credit/weighting for average playoff wins. Also, I'm still not clear how Orlando finished ahead of the Spurs. The other thing is their arbitrary cutoff line at 5 years. That helped the Lakers, Celtics, and probably the Heat. This type of metric should have been used for a longer period of time, at least a decade. In fact, if they used 10 years instead of 5, it's very likely the Spurs would have finished number one using the same criteria.
