Care to guess who still makes more money than the likes of LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, James Harden, or any other active NBA player? His name is Michael Jeffrey Jordan.
Because of the generation he played in, MJ made less than $100 million in salary over a 15-year career that elevated him to the status of basketball's GOAT.
His net worth, however, has skyrocketed since his retirement as he's transitioned into the life of a mogul. The numbers are sure to blow your mind.
What's Michael Jordan's Net Worth?
Since Jordan retired for good the 2002-03 season, MJ has built the most successful business career the world has seen from a former star athlete. As of 2019, Forbes estimates his net worth at an incredible $1.9 billion.
