Michael Jordan not only was one of the greatest basketball players of all-time but still is one of the great American businessmen. Jordan grew his self-entitled brand to great heights since he joined the NBA in 1984 and there are no plans of stopping.
Jordan, 55, became a billionaire in 2015 twelve years after his NBA career came to an end, according to Forbes. Jordan made $100 million in his playing career and at the end of 2018 had a net worth of $1.65 billion. Jordan was ranked the fourth-wealthiest celebrity of 2018 by Forbes last month.
Jordan rang in the New Year by sailing on his brand new, $80 million yacht off the coast of St. Barths, according to TMZ. The ship is 230-feet long and includes eight cabins, a bar, dining room, full gym, deck Jacuzzi, a state-of-the-art audiovisual system and satellite. Oh, and we won’t forget a full-sized basketball court on the deck of the yacht for ‘Air Jordan’ to get some shots up. In the report by TMZ, it states that in order to keep the ship operational, Jordan must pay $840,000 a week.
Photos of Jordan on the superyacht were leaked two weeks after Hornets guard Dwayne Bacon tweeted a video of His Airness dancing to “Wobble Baby” by V.I.C. while smoking a cigar, at the Hornets’ annual holiday party.
