Michael Jordan’s Net Worth Shocks The World

Not only is the ex-basketballer an iconic name in the sporting world, but he's also the wealthiest man to have ever been involved in the sporting industry.

Michael Jordan has joined the ranks of the world's billionaires with a net worth of around $2.1 billion.

Of Michael Jordan's net worth of over $ 2 billion, only under $100 million was made from his salary at the Chicago Bulls and Washington Wizards. This is nothing compared to what today's basketballers will earn over a 13-year playing stint.

Nike has been his biggest backer since day one. Jordan turned his signature Air Jordan Nike shoes into a standalone endeavor now worth multiple billions of dollars.
