What's that got to do with anything? As if Jordan didn't have tons of b*tches as well. At least Magic was honest about it. Last I checked, Magic is still married - Jordan's not. That should tell you something.

No one called Magic a saint. He's got his vices just like everyone, but at least he owned up to them and didn't keep it tucked under the rug so as not to lose his endorsements like some (*cough* Jordan *cough*). F*cking a bunch of b*tches cuz you're a horny ballplayer and being open about it is quite a stretch from having a serious gambling addiction that's cost you countless finances and, allegedly, your own father.

As it stands, Magic's companies are worth an estimated $700-million. Jordan's net worth is only around $500-million. The fact that Magic never had the world's biggest shoe deal, 20+ years of Gatorade commercials, Jockey commercials, etc. yet STILL is worth more should tell you something about the smarts and savvy of the guy. He knows what he's doing far better than Jordan does.

When it comes to financial savvy, Jordan is just Mike Tyson with a better shoe deal.

This is funny. A regular person mad, arguing, and bragging that a person he's never met is worth 700 million, while another is worth 500 million.

Reminds me of this editorial calling this basketball player a loser because his contract was bought out. Meanwhile, the player got paid $15,000,000 or something, and can now sign with another team for more millions in his bank account, while the guy stays writing for the sports section of a free newspaper.

Sometimes we have to realize these things and not care so much, and focus more on our own lives.

Damn, and didn't Mike have to give up half of his earnings to his ex-wife?

Companies seek out Magic to promote their goods.

If someone called you up and said, "Our company will pay you 3 million to endorse our product for 2 years, and all you have to do is spend 5 days total reading a script in front of a camera"

Who here would say no?


Not about being a attention whore.
He probably gives it to kids for clothes, school and healthcare.

There should be more people like him in the world.

Dude you're hating a guy for making money legitemately? Gtfo I don't think you know what an attention whore is.

This guy gets paid to be on television commercials, not the other way around.

Well, Magic Johnsion already had HIV when I was born so i don't know much about his persona during his playing days. just find him to be kind of corny is all.
