An answer to the eternal question "Is it better to be a jock or a nerd?"
Michael Jordan will make over $300,000 a game: $10,000 a minute, assuming he averages
about 30 minutes per game. Assuming $40 million in endorsements next year, he'll be making
$178,100 a day (working or not)!
Assuming he sleeps 7 hours a night, he makes $52,000 every night while visions of
sugarplums dance in his head.
If he goes to see a movie, it'll cost him $7.00, but he'll make $18,550 while he's
If he decides to have a 5 minute egg, he'll make $618 while boiling it.
He makes $7,415/hr more than minimum wage (after the wage hike).
He'll make $3,710 while watching each episode of Friends.
If he wanted to save up for a new Acura NSX ($90,000) it would take him a whole 12
If someone were to hand him his salary and endorsement money, they would have to do it
at the rate of $2.00 every second.
He'll probably pay around $200 for a nice round of golf, but will be reimbursed $33,390
for that round.
Assuming he puts the federal maximum of 15% of his income into his tax deferred account
(401k), he will have hit the federal cap of $9500 for such accounts at 8:30 a.m. on
If you were given a tenth of a penny for every dollar he made, you'd be living
comfortably at $65,000 a year.
He'll make about $19.60 while watching the 100 meter dash in the Olympics.
He'll make about $15,600 while the Boston Marathon is being run.
While the common person is spending about $20 for a meal in his trendy Chicago
restaurant, he'll pull in about $5600.
Next year, he'll make more than twice as much as all of our past presidents for all of
their terms combined. Amazing isn't it?
But: Jordan will have to save 100% of his income for 270 years to have a net worth
equivalent to that of Bill Gates.
