My birthday twin has officially made the Forbes Billionaire list for the first time and can you say WINNING!!!
According to Bleacherreport.com
CNN Money breaks down how Jordan accumulated his vast earnings:
Jordan amassed his $1 billion fortune partly through his endorsement deal with Nike (NKE). The Jordan brand by Nike brought in an estimated $2.25 billion in 2013, which earned the 52 year-old athlete $90 million, according to Forbes.
But it was Jordan’s ownership of the Charlotte Hornets basketball team that catapulted him into the billionaire’s ranks this year. NBA teams soared in value after Steve Ballmer, the former Microsoft (MSFT, Tech30) CEO, paid $2 billion for the Los Angeles Clippers.
In other news Robert Flores of ESPN goes in on Iggy Azalea’s boyfriend Nick Young for claiming that he was being attacked by a dolphin, but Flores comes back though, was priceless. He tells Nick Young, “And what did we learn? We learned that according to the Lakers’ Nick Young a dolphin recently tried to kill him. So Nick while dolphins are trying to kill you, your girlfriend is trying to kill hip hop. Let’s call it even, OK?”
