The greatest basketball player to ever play the game, may not have success as an owner still in Charlotte with the Hornets, but despite the on the court failure, it has been an excellent investment for Jordan off the court.

Besides the Charlotte Hornets, ‘MJ’s’ Nike’s Jordan Brand has also significantly helped him economically. The soaring team value and continued success of Nike’s Jordan Brand pushed Jordan’s net worth to $1.65 billion in Forbes’ billionaires’ list this month. The tally is up $350 million from 12 months earlier. Jordan ranks as the 1,477th wealthiest person in the world, up 90 spots from last year.
