Michael Jordan doesn't need to be physically on the court to keep making his millions. According to Front Office Sports, Nike's Jordan Brand hauled in a record $5.1 billion in 2022. And with Mike taking home a reported 5% of the Jumpman's annual earnings, that means the six-time NBA champ made $256.1 million last year alone... (The Spun)

not sure the numbers are correct. Does Jordan make 5% of the gross REVENUE, or 5% of the EARNINGS (which is the profit from those revenues, and would be far, less)? Still a ton of money, but don't confuse "revenue" with "earnings."

I like financial people that think like me. I said to myself while reading the post..."I bet Jordan actually got $150M, then he got taxed on that $150M, so he pocketed roughly $60M"...The life

Royalty contracts are typically based on net sales, not earnings. Net sales are more difficult to manipulate than earnings. Accordingly, it appears the article accurately states Jordan collected about $256.1 million.

Larry, that’s not how much MJ earned in 2022.
You are killing your father, and us too.

Well not everyone needs shoes.
Everyone wasn't blaming the president for high shoes prices. It amazes me that we never blame oil companies for high gas prices.

Jordan brand is a luxury good. People normally don't take issues with profits earned from them because consumers can just decide not to buy it and no big deal. Consumer theory and behavioral economics separates luxury and normal goods.
