Michael Jordan is still regarded as the GOAT, and has made millions of dollars in his career, as he’s set for life. He’s also at billionaire status, and can turn down money when he wants.
In a recent interview that MJ’s agent David Falk, had with WFAN’s Boomer & Gio with Boomer Esiason and Gregg Giannotti though, he explained how he turned down $100 million before. According to Falk, this went down in 2018, where all MJ had to do was let a brand use his his name and likeness.
In this endorsement, all MJ had to do was make one two-hour appearances, to promote this brand. That’s all that was needed, but the former Bulls great just wasn’t feeling it.
“I brought him a deal three years ago for $100 million,” Falk said. “All he had to do was, other than giving his name and likeness, make one two-hour appearance to announce the deal, and he turned it down. God bless him. He’s been so successful. It gives him an opportunity to do whatever the hell he wants or not to do things he doesn’t want. I really admire that. He’s very, very selective in the things he wants to be involved in.”
Falk went on to reveal that Jordan was in Asia a few years back, with the Hornets. There, he was offered $7 million to play in a golf tournament, and turned that down as well. It definitely must be nice to be rich enough to turn down that kind of money.
