Michael Jordan made less than $100 million as the NBA’s greatest player of all time but is now a member of Forbes’ list of billionaires with an estimated net worth of $1.65 billion.
Since Jordan retired 15 years ago, he has built the most successful and lucrative career we’ve ever seen from a former athlete.
From sprawling houses to custom planes to his own golf course, he’s clearly enjoying life after hoops.
Jordan still makes more money than LeBron James, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, or any other active player.
He reportedly makes $100 million a year from Nike royalties alone. LeBron is estimated to make less than $90 million a year, including salary and endorsements.
That’s way more than he made in salary while he played. He earned $93.8 million TOTAL in NBA salary, and $63.3 million of that came in his final two seasons with the Chicago Bulls.
