Forbes designated Jordan as the athlete with the highest career earnings in 2017. From his Nike Air Jordan Brand income and endorsements, Jordan's 2015 income was an estimated $110 million, the most of any retired athlete. As of April 2017, his current net worth is estimated at $1.31 billion by Forbes. Jordan is the third-richest African-American as of 2017, behind Oprah Winfrey and Robert F. Smith.
Jordan is one of the most marketed sports figures in history. He has been a major spokesman for such brands as Nike, Coca-Cola, Chevrolet, Gatorade, McDonald's, Ball Park Franks, Rayovac, Wheaties, Hanes, and MCI. Jordan has had a long relationship with Gatorade, appearing in over 20 commercials for the company since 1991, including the "Be Like Mike" commercials in which a song was sung by children wishing to be like Jordan.
Jordan left North Carolina a year early to enter the 1984 NBA draft, where he was selected third overall by the Chicago Bulls. 2 years later, he would return to North Carolina and complete his degree in geography.
Michael Jordan, who grew up in North Carolina, attended University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and now owns the Charlotte Hornets, is making his biggest ever donation. Jordan will donate $7 million to build 2 medical clinics in Charlotte, in helping to offer behavioral health, physical therapy, social work, oral health, and family planning services.
Retired NBA player like Michael Jordan will be getting health insurance, which was introduced by the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) back in 2016. The National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) announced that its player representatives have voted unanimously to fund health insurance for all retired NBA players with at least three years of service in the league, in order to exemplify the NBPA's focus on the health and welfare of its current, retired and future members.
Back in August 2017, LaVar Ball claimed that he could beat Jordan one-on-one during the late-1980s, when Jordan was probably at his absolutely highest level as a one-on-one player. Jordan then responded back to LaVar Ball's ridiculous 1-on-1 claim, saying that I don’t think LaVar could even beat me if I was on one leg.”
