$100,000,000

(Forbes) Hoops icon Michael Jordan qualified for Forbes’ annual billionaires list for the first time this year with a net worth of $1 billion thanks to soaring NBA franchise values. The Charlotte Hornets are Jordan’s biggest asset, with his stake worth more than $500 million net of debt. But the team has largely been a money loser in terms of cash flow in recent years. The NBA’s greatest player can afford it though, as he continues to make a mint annually outside of the Hornets. Jordan earned $100 million from Nike and other partners last year by Forbes’ count, more than any other retired or current athlete. His 2014 haul is also more than the $94 million Jordan made in cumulative playing salary during 15 years lacing up his hightops for the Chicago Bulls and Washington Wizards.
