CHANGE FROM 2013: NO CHANGE

Levy’s ranking may raise some eyebrows. But remember, his current job extends well beyond sports, his nine-year deal with the NBA averages $1.2 billion per year and his strategy to move the Final Four to cable TV for the first time is more than enough to place him high on this list. Hands on with those properties is Lenny Daniels, who was named president of Turner Sports in July.
