Michael Jordan, who is regarded by many as the best player in NBA history, won six championships with the Chicago Bulls.

Although he made $1.8 billion (pre-tax) from corporate partners including Nike, Hanes, and Gatorade, his career salary was only $90 million.

In September 2020, MJ began working for sports betting company DraftKings as an investor and special advisor to the board.

In late 2020, he also acquired co-ownership of a NASCAR franchise.

In a 2019 transaction that valued the NBA club at $1.5 billion, Jordan, the owner of the Charlotte Hornets, consented to sell a small portion of his holdings.

Michael Jordan made less than $100 million as the NBA's greatest player of all time

but that hasn't stopped him from becoming a billionaire with an estimated net worth of $1.6 billion.

Jordan contributed to a $305 million investment in Dapper Labs, the company that created the virtual trading card website NBA Top Shot, in March. Other investors included 2 Chainz, Will Smith, and Kevin Durant.
