Michael Jordan Made More Money in 2014 Off Sneakers Than His Whole NBA Career

While many people are aware that Michael Jordan was one of the greatest basketball players to ever play the game — if not the greatest — many may not know that he made more money last year in sneaker sales alone than he did in his entire NBA career.

A new infographic released last week by PBS shows that Jordan made $100 million from 2014 in sneaker sales alone, which is $6 million more than the $94 million total in income he earned for his entire NBA career. 

Jordan is now revered as the highest-paid athlete in retail of all time, which is just another achievement he can add to his legendary portfolio.
