Michael Jordan made the headlines this week, but for something out of his 'The Last Dance' documentary. His former agent, David Falk, told the story of how Jordan turned down $100 million to appear in an event for only two hours. Falk said that given the amount of money Jordan's had made in his career, he's got a little picky about his appearances and who he does business with.
For instance, he didn't think that money wasn't worth his time, so he simply discarded it. However, not everybody thinks the same way as His Airness. His son, Marcus, reacted to the news, delivering a hilarious response to his dad's decision.
"Shoooot, shoulda hit my line!! I coulda finessed this💰“🥺Dad, I got a huge event imma need you to slide to," Marcus wrote on Twitter.
It doesn't look like Michael is worried about money. He has a ton of it. Forbes estimated Jordan’s value to be at $2.1 billion this year, mostly thanks to the Charlotte Hornets, the team he owns since 2010.
Ever since his active days, MJ was very careful of the things he did off the court and how he manages his personal life. He's trying to have the same success in business that he had on the floor, but he needs to put some more work on it.
We'll see more of MJ with the Chicago Bulls tonight, when the episode 5 and 6 of The Last Dance will air, with a big appearance of the late Kobe Bryant.
