Michael Jordan will make over $300,000 a game: $10,000 a minute, assuming he averages about 30 minutes per game.

Assuming $40 million in endorsements next year, he'll be making $178,100 a day working or not. Assuming he sleeps 7 hours a night he makes about $52,000.

If he goes to a movie it will cost him $7.00, but he will make $18,550 while he is there.

If he decides to have a 5 minute egg, he'll make $618.

He makes $7,415 per hour more than the minimum wage.

If he wanted to save up for a new Acura NXS ($90,000) it would take him a whole 12 hours.

If someone wanted to hand him his salary and endorsement money, they would have to do it at a rate of $2.00 every second.

He'll probably pay around $200 for a nice round of golf, but he will be reimbursed $33,390 for that round.

Assuming he puts the federal maximum of 15% of his income into his tax-deferred account ($401,000), he will hit the federal cap of $9,500 for such accounts at 8:30 am on Jan 1st 1997.

If you were given a tenth of a penny for every dollar he made, you would be living comfortably at $65,000 a year.

He'll make about $19.60 while watching the 100 meter dash in the Olympics. He'll make about $15,600 while the Boston Marathon is being run.

Next year he'll make more than twice as much as all of our past presidents for all of their terms combined.

Amazing isn't it? BUT:

JORDAN WILL HAVE TO SAVE 100% OF HIS INCOME FOR 270 YEARS TO HAVE A NET WORTH EQUIVALENT TO THAT OF BILL GATES!
