Most basketball fans agree that Michael Jordan is the best player in the game’s history. Jordan also has one of the most fascinating stories in NBA annals.
His Airness has amassed a considerable fortune, fitting his illustrious career and the acclaim he has received. The Charlotte Hornets are currently owned by him. Here we take a peek at Michael Jordan’s fortune in 2023 when he will be 60 years old.
How Much is Michael Jordan Net Worth?
Michael Jordan is a former American basketball player, team owner, product endorser, and entrepreneur. The estimated net worth of Michael Jordan is $2.2 billion. The most well-known basketball player on the planet is most likely still Michael Jordan.
All other rising stars are compared to Michael Jordan, the athlete, and person. Every season, a new player is heralded (or burdened) as the “next Michael Jordan” by the media. Michael Jordan, meanwhile, continues to enjoy his semi-retirement, his numerous endorsement and development deals, and his status as the game’s greatest player.
Jordan coached the Chicago Bulls to six NBA championships. He has won the league MVP award five times. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame on September 11, 2009, and holds the record for the highest career scoring average of all time.
As you are surely aware, Michael did not become a billionaire as a result of his NBA earnings. Michael amassed a net worth of $93.7 million throughout his time in the NBA. When LeBron James finally hangs up his sneakers, he’ll have banked nearly $500 million from his NBA career.
Michael Jordan received an above-average salary for an NBA player at the time, but he did not benefit from the mega-deals that became available in the years after his departure. Michael became the first player in history to earn more than $30 million annually in compensation.
He reached that milestone during the 1996–97 season, earning $30.14 million in base salary. He made $33.14 million the next year. When accounting for inflation, that equates to $53.4 million in today’s dollars.
Michael has consistently been one of the highest-paid celebrity endorsers during his career and in the years since his retirement. His endorsement deals have so far netted him $1.4 billion. Michael gets $100 million a year from endorsements and other commercial activities even though he has not played basketball professionally in nearly two decades.

Please take note that this is more than he made in 16 NBA seasons combined. Michael’s annual income from royalties on the Nike and Jordan brands is at least $60 million. Michael was able to become a billionaire even though he did not earn a fortune through sponsorships or salary from the NBA’s Charlotte Hornets. In 2010, he spent $175 million to acquire a controlling interest in the squad.
After learning in June 2014 that he had expanded his part in the Bobcats (then the Charlotte Hornets) to 89%, Michael became the youngest person ever to reach the designation of “billionaire.” In a deal worth $1.5 billion, he sold minority ownership to an investment company in 2019. We’ll go into more depth about this investment later in the article.
Michael Jordan Real Estate
Michael currently resides in an opulent estate in Jupiter, Florida. In the gated Bear’s Club neighborhood, designed by Jack Nicklaus, the 26,000-square-foot, 11-bedroom mansion is situated on three acres. He paid $4.8 million for the land in 2011, and then spent two years and $7.6 million building his ideal house.
A huge mansion on a lake near Charlotte, North Carolina, was purchased by Michael in March 2013 for $2.8 million. Michael Jordan’s lake house in Charlotte, North Carolina, is 12,310 square feet in size and has six bedrooms and eight bathrooms. On an approximately 50,000-square-foot lot, it is located on the water.
The interior has soaring ceilings, marble and hardwood flooring, various fireplaces, an elevator, and jacuzzi tubs in some of the bathrooms. The mansion has floor-to-ceiling windows on practically every side, providing breathtaking views of the adjacent lake. A pool and a pier leading to a lakeside pavilion are located outside.
In addition to his Hornet, Michael has a home in Salt Lake City, Utah, as well as a high-end condo in the city.
Michael Jordan Private Jet
Michael Jordan travels between his homes across the world in a private, $50 million Gulfstream G550 jet. Michael’s “Jumpman” insignia can be seen on the tail of the jet, and the registration number, N236MJ, is not a coincidence (featuring both his jersey number and initials).
Michael’s private plane is held in trust by a company called “Bank of Utah Trustee,” as shown by the company’s official papers. The jet was constructed in 2005 and has a Rolls-Royce BR 700 Series Turbo Fan engine.
Here is a video of the plane taking off from a Canadian airport-
