Michael Jordan is one of the most famous basketball players and has a brand named after him. He has a deal with Gatorade as well as Nike, Hanes and Upper Deck. He also has restaurants and has won six NBA championships. He even developed his own cologne! His estimated net worth is 1.65 Billion dollars but could be more as he gets royalty checks from his companies and that doesn’t factor into his net worth. He is the most decorated player in NBA history as he has five regular season MVP’s and three All Star Season MVP’s.
Air Jordan’s are a branch of the Nike company that makes shoes, shirts, shorts, sweatpants and other fitness clothing. Air Jordan’s are primarily shoes but have shirts available as well. The first Air Jordan’s were manufactured and produced in 1984. Air Jordan’s or ‘’J’s” as the name they are more referred to as, are expensive shoes as they are more than likely over one hundred dollars for one pair of shoes. The newer Jordan’s are valued at anywhere between three hundred and five hundred dollars. I had bought a pair of Air Jordan’s for around seventy dollars. However, they were the Retro Jordan’s and not the newest ones.
Michael Jordan played for two teams, The Washington Wizards and the Chicago Bulls. He
is more known for playing on the Bulls because that’s where he got his championships and MVP’s. He left his team in 1994 after his father, James R. Jordan Sr., was murdered. Then, in 1995 he followed his original passion of baseball, joining the Birmingham Barons. The Barons were a Double-A minor league relative of the Chicago White Sox. He has been recognized as the greatest basketball player in history, but is being taken over by LeBron James.
