We had to update the page after Forbes did real calculations on Jordan’s financial status. They estimated Jordan to be worth at least $1.6 billion. Thanks to his investment in the Charlotte Bobcats now the Charlotte Hornets Michael Jordan invested $416 million into his portion of the team and outside of the team he’s worth $750 million. After subtracting all the cash Jordan has invested in the team, Forbes estimates his net worth outside of the Hornets to be $600 million, giving him a net worth of a $1 billion.
According to figures posted by CelebrityNetWorth.com Jordan still earns $60 million a year from revenue of his Jordans. Wow. It’s odd that a majority of the people paying upwards $350 for a pair of Retro 3’s make less than $20,000 a year. But can we blame Michael Jordan and Nike because our priorities are jacked. The Jordan Brand is the biggest selling athletic brand every year. According to Forbes Jordans are a $2 billion brand and in 2013 sales made record highs. Jordan’s reached over $2.5 billion in retail sales last year. Michael Jordan reportedly cashed in on $90 million in bonuses and revenue. Mind blowing for shoes that cost $2 a pair to make. (What am I doing wrong?!!! SMH)
