Why Michael Jordan made only €64 million during NBA carrier but now worth £1.2bn

Michael Jordan is regarded as one of the best basketball players to feature in the NBA, winning six championships and six MVP honours – but only a fraction of his wealth comes from the court.

Michael Jordan may be a legend of the basketball court – but only £64m of his £1.2b fortune comes from the court.

The 58-year-old spent 19 years playing in the NBA, winning six championships and earning the MVP honour the same number of times.

But he is equally famous for ventures outside of the sport, with a year in minor-league baseball as well hitting Hollywood with Space Jam.

And this has seen Jordans’ earnings amass to an astonishing number over the years.

Jordan picked up £64m in salary during his career at the Chicago Bulls, Miami Heat and Washington Wizards.
