Michael Jordan, six-time NBA champion, six-time- NBA finals MVP, fourteen-time NBA All-Star, and owner of the Charlotte Hornets is one of the most famous sports icons of all time. His basketball career with the Chicago Bulls lasted from 1984 to 1993, and again from 1995 until 1998. In that time he lead the Chicago Bulls to one of the most successful and dominant dynasties in NBA history.
Outside of his playing career Michael Jordan is famous for starring as himself in the 90s cartoon classic Space Jam. He also has his sporting clothing brand, Jordan, who in collaboration with Nike, produces the beloved Air Jordans.
Now at the age of 57, Michael Jordan is worth an estimated $1.9 billion. Considering the basketball icon earned less than $100 million in his entire playing career he’s done an extraordinary job of promoting his brand.
