Jordan is too powerful to touch.



besides... who knows? maybe this is a publicity stunt by Bobcats management to get them into the mainstream however indirectly.

It's not even a matter of whether he wins or not. The fact of the matter is that this will have to go to summary judgment at the very least, and that costs taxpayers lots of money. This country is a joke. Loser pays, like every other Western nation has for tort claims, is the way to go. Institute a small "lawyer tax" like they have in several other countries to help subsidize representation for the indigent if you're worried that loser pays will affect the ability of the poor to seek restitution.

I agree, if he wins, that would possibly be the funniest court ruling of my lifetime, narrowly edging out OJ (still losing out all-time to Plessy v. Ferguson)

The guy suing Jordan doesn't even look like him IMO

This topic makes me wonder though, how much is Jordan's actual net worth?

Probably between $450-700M. He's been making $35-60M+/year in endorsements alone for the last 14-16 years, and then you have his basketball salary (~$95M) on top of that, so do the math.

While trying to find how much MJ was worth I came across these:

Quote:
Jordan will make over $300,000 a game, $10,000 a minute assuming he
averages about 30 minutes a game.

Assuming $40 mil 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 Independence Day, it'll cost him $7.00, but he'll
make $18,550 while he's there.


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 days.

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.

He could take 1/100,000th of his income and buy some poor college
student 5200 packages of Ramen.

Assuming he puts the federal maximum of 15% of his income into his tax
deferred account (401k), he will hit the federal cap of $9500 for such
accounts at 8:30 a.m. on January 1st, 1997.

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.

And something to cheer you up after all of this. . .

Jordan will only have to have this income for 270 more years to have a
net worth equivalent to that of Bill Gates.

. . .Or does that make you more sick?

they're pretty funny. they looks pretty old though

Yeah, that's funny, but it appears to be based off his salary with the Bulls (and his original contract, at that). Some of those claims are pretty obviously mistaken. For example:

Quote:
If he wanted to save up for a new Acura NSX ($90,000) it would take
him a whole 12 days.


This would mean that he makes only ~$3M/yr, roughly, and we know that's not true. He probably makes between $30-60M even now that he's retired, seeing as how he's still top 2-3 on the "highest endorsement" list for athletes.

However, some of it seems about right, for example:

Quote:
If you were given a tenth of a penny for every dollar he made, you'd
be living comfortably at $65,000 a year.

...which would mean that he makes ~$65M/yr, which, while perhaps a bit on the high side, is certainly much closer to his actual yearly income than $3M is.
