Michael Jordan’s star power nets him $90 million in 2013

Michael Jordan may have not played a minute of professional basketball in over 10 years, but that hasn’t stopped him raking in big money since.

In fact, as revealed by Forbes, the NBA legend earned more in 2013 than any athlete (retired or currently active) save boxer Floyd Mayweather.

Thanks in large part to his sneaker deal with Nike, Jordan made an estimated $90 million last year.

The report credits Jordan’s fruitful relationship with Nike for the big payday, comparing his $2.25 billion in U.S. retail basketball sales last year to LeBron James’ $300 million.

Before 2013, Jordan’s earnings had peaked at $80 million during his last season with the Bulls (1997-98).

Jordan ranked number one among the list of highest paid retired athletes, followed by Arnold Palmer, David Beckham, Jack Nicklaus, Magic Johnson, Shaquille O’Neal and others.
