$90 mill for 7 years

Sorry - I thought I heard it all until this morning …

90 million for 7 years from Nike for LeBron - and not a game played yet - hasn’t even got a team yet!!!
Wow …

$35,225.04 a Day

He has just earned over $24 in the time it took you to read this (60 secs) - ching, ching …

How much did you earn?

he also signed a contract with Upper Deck. the terms were not disclosed, but it was comparable with tiger’s contract. he did receive a million dollar signing bonus though.

There were plenty of people making money from the kid while he was playing high school ball-

The TV revenue alone from the high school games

This is a bit dated, but still mind-boggling to think about…

Subject: Is It Better To Be a Jock or a Nerd?

  $ Michael Jordan having "retired," with $40 million in endorsements 

makes $178,100 a day, working or not.

  $ If he sleeps 7 hours a night, he makes $52,000 every night while 

visions of sugarplums dance in his head.

  $ If he goes to see a movie, it'll cost him $7.00, but he'll make 

$18,550 while he’s there.

  $ If he decides to have a 5-minute egg, he'll make $618 while boiling 


  $ He makes $7,415/hr more than minimum wage.

  $ He'll make $3,710 while watching each episode of Friends.

  $ If he wanted to save up for a new Acura NSX ($90,000) it would take 

him a whole 12 hours.

  $ If someone were to hand him his salary and endorse! ment money, they 

would have to do it at the rate of $2.00 every second.

  $ He'll probably pay around $200 for a nice round of golf, but will be 

reimbursed $33,390 for that round.

  $ Assuming he puts the federal maximum of 15% of his income into a tax 

deferred account (401k), his contributions will hit the federal cap of $9500
at 8:30 a.m. on January 1st.

  $ If you were given a penny for every 10 dollars he made, you'd be 

living comfortably at $65,000 a year.

  $ He'll make about $19.60 while watching the 100 meter dash in the 

Olympics, and about $15,600 during the Boston Marathon.

  $ While the common person is spending about $20 for a meal in his 

trendy Chicago restaurant, he’ll pull in about $5600.

  $ This year, he'll make more than twice as much as all U.S. past
  presidents for all of their terms combined. Amazing isn't it? 


  $ If Jordan saves 100% of his income for the next 450 years, he'll 

still! have less than Bill Gates has today.

  $$$ Game over. Nerd wins.

once you reach a certain point the argument is mute, you can only spend so much money, the better barometer is who gets the girl? MJ or gates? jock wins!
