Michael Jordan has been recently categorized as the “First” Billionaire athlete in the world. Of course Jordan is the most famous face, name and marketable athlete in the world according to several reliable sources. As the current majority owner of the Charlotte Bobcats basketball team (NBA) Jordan owns a 89.3 stake in the team, which give mikes estimates $ amount in this team about $416 million. Add that number with his sponsorship/ partnerships with NIKE, Brand Jordan, Gatorade, Hanes and multiple real estate ownership, MJ is locked in at $1 Billion net worth. I wouldn’t expect any other athlete to have reached such a goal financially.
