More money, less problems?
It seems like Michael Jordan ain’t got no worries (#LilWayneVoice), because the basketball hall of famer has now been cemented as a billionaire on the Forbes list.
Although it was estimated that the former NBA baller crossed over to the billionaires club last June, it’s now official as he was one of the 290 newcomers to be added to the exclusive list.
Jordan hasn’t hit the hardwood professionally in well over a decade, but that doesn’t matter because according to Forbes, his wealth comes from various other avenues.
“Most of his cash comes from Nike payouts on his iconic brand. The Jordan brand grossed an estimated $2.25 billion in 2013, earning his Airness some $90 million. But his most valuable asset is his stake in the Charlotte Hornets, worth more than $500 million.”
The list also includes the Snapchat creators, Nutella heir and Uber founders. Must be nice.
