Michael Jordan retired 18 years ago of the NBA with the label of best player of all time, but over the years it remains one of the most influential celebrities on the planet. There is no day in which some medium reminds us of the fortune he treasures, which $ 2.1 billion, but that has decreased to 1,750 due to the covid-19 crisis. The pandemic does not respect even myths.
He always was a winner in sports and now he is in business, but his figure is sold expensive. Or even sometimes it does not sell for a lot of money that they put on the table. David Falk, the former agent of myth, revealed that his represented not infrequently rejected millionaire offers to simply have his presence in golf tournaments or to enhance an event.
A woman in the Philippines offered Michael seven million dollars to play a one-day golf tournament, and he turned it down.
“Michael turned down a proposal to make a one-day golf appearance when I was in Asia a few years ago for a preseason game with Charlotte, “Falk said on the show WFAN, in statements collected by Sports Bible. “A woman in the Philippines He offered me seven million dollars for one day, wanted Michael to play in a golf tournament. And he rejected it“.
And there was another more eloquent occasion and even difficult to understand for all mortals: “Three years ago I brought him a proposal for 100 million dollars. And all he had to do, other than give his name and image to a product, was make a two-hour public appearance to announce the deal. And he rejected it. “
One day I brought him a proposal for 100 million. And all he had to do, other than give his name and image to a product, was make a two-hour public appearance to announce the deal. And Michael turned it down
It was clear that Michael Jordan nor did he need the money then or now. Takes many years living above good and evil and after earning a lot of money during his career, take the Jordan brand to the top of the world and buy the Charlotte Hornets, you don’t need to worry about money … not even if it is almost given to you.
That exclusivity goes hand in hand with his personality. Jordan does not get involved with anyone or any company that he does not want for a lot of money they offer him, which only adds to the mystery surrounding his legend. And its few public appearances, as recently in their holidays in croatia with his wife, the Cuban Yvette Prieto, cause a huge commotion among the people.
