Michael Jordan used to make over $300,000 a game: $10,000 a minute assuming he averaged about 30 minutes a game.
Assuming $40 million in endorsements next year, he was making $178,100 a day, working or not.
Assuming he slept 7 hours per night, he made $52,000 every night while visions of sugarplums danced in his head.
If he went to a movie, it cost him $9.00 (with a small pop), but he made $18,550 while he was there.
If he decided to have a 5 minute egg, he made $618.00 while it was boiling.
He made $7,415.00 per hour more than the minimum wage.
He made $3,710.00 while watching an episode of "The Jeffersons."
If he wanted to save up for a new Acura NSX ($90,000), it would take him a whole 12 hours.
If someone had to hand him his salary and endorsement money, they would have to hand him $2.00 every second.
He probably paid around $200.00 for a nice round of golf but he was reimbursed $33,390.00 for that round.
If you were given a tenth of a penny for every dollar he made, you'd be living comfortably at $65,000.00 per year.
Last year, he made twice as much as all of our past presidents for all their terms combined.
Amazing isn't it?
But: Michael will have to save 100% of all of his income coming in for 270 years to have a net worth equivalent to that of Bill Gates.
In lame man's terms, or the translation is: I guess you can say that Nerds Rule! LOL :-) HA HA
