Michael Jordan Officially A Billionaire



Retired professional basketball player and businessman Michael Jordan has officially made it into the Billionaires club.

According to Forbes, most of Jordan’s fortunes comes from his Nike deal and stake in the Charlotte Hornets.

The Jordan brand grossed an estimated $2.25 billion in 2013, earning his Airness some $90 million. But his most valuable asset is his stake in the Charlotte Hornets, worth more than $500 million. When ex-Microsoft MSFT -0.24% CEO Steve Ballmer bought the Los Angeles Clippers for a stunning $2 billion, values of all NBA teams skyrocketed, creating three new billionaires. Jordan’s old boss Jerry Reinsdorf, owner of the Chicago Bulls, joined the list with a fortune of $1.3 billion, and Houston Rockets owner Leslie Alexander boosted his net worth to $1.6 billion.

And Jordan has some more reasons to celebrate! After tying the knot to Yvette Prieto back in 2013, the couple welcomed twins girls, Victoria and Ysabel, just last year.

Congratulations Mike!
