Michael Jordan vs Bill Gates

Michael Jordan of the Chicago Bulls.

What's he got to do with Bill Gates?

In US dollars...

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

Assuming $40 mil in endorsements next year,
he'll be making $178,100 a day (working or not)!

Assuming 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 Independence Day, 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 it.

He makes $7,415/hr more than minimum wage
(after the wage hike)

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
endorsement 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.

He could take 1/100,000th of his income and
buy some poor college student 5200 packages of Ramen.

If you were given a tenth of a penny for every
dollar 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.

He'll make about $15,600 while the
Boston Marathon is being run.

While the common person is spending about
$20 for a meal in his trendy Chicago restaurant,
he'll pull in about $5600.

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

And something to cheer you up after all of this:

Jordan will only have to have this income for
270 more years to have a net worth equivalent
to that of Bill Gates !!!!!
