Michael Jordan is retired with $40 million in endorsements, makes $178,000 a day, working or not.
If Michael Jordan sleeps 7 hours a night, he makes $52,000 every night while dreaming. If he goes to see a movie, it will cost him $7, but he’ll make $18,550 while he’s there. If he decides to have a 5 minute egg, he’ll make $618 while boiling it.
He will make #3,710 while watching 1 episode of Friends. He’ll probably pay around $200 for a nice round of golf, but will be reimbursed #33,390 for that round. If you were given a penny for every 10 dollars he made, you’d be living comfortably at $65,000 a year.
Michael Jordan will make about $19.60 while watching the 100 meter dash in the Olympics, and about $15,600 during the Boston Marathon. Assuming he puts the federal maximum of 15% of his income into a tax deferred account (401k), Jordan’s contributions will hit the federal cap of $9,500 at 8:30 am, January 1st. While the common person is spending about $20 for a meal in his trendy Chicago restaurant, Jordan will pull in about $5,600.
He makes $7,415 and hour more than minimum wage. This year, Michael Jordan will make more than twice as much as all US past presidents for all of their terms combined. If he wanted to save up for a new Mercedes 57 S ($356,000), it would take him a while 2 days.
Amazing, isn’t it? However…
If Jordan saves 100% of his income for the next 450 years, he’ll still have less than Bill Gates has today. Game over. Nerds win.
