to the eternal question Is it better to be a jock or a nerd?
Michael Jordan makes over $300,000 a game. That $10,000
a minute, at an average 30 minutes per game. With $40 million
in endorsements, he 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, itll cost him $7.00, but
hell make $18,550 while hes there.
If he decides to have a 5 minute egg, hell make $618
while boiling it.
He makes $7,415/hr more than minimum wage.
Hell 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.
Hell 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), he 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,
youd be living comfortably at $65,000 a year.
Hell make about $1960 while watching the 100 meter
dash in the Olympics.
Hell make about $15,600 during the Boston Marathon.
While the common person is spending about $20 for a meal
in his trendy Chicago restaurant, hell pull in about $5600.
This year, hell make more than twice as much as all
U.S. past presidents for all of their terms combined.
Amazing isnt it?
However, if Jordan saves 100% of his income for the next
250 years, hell still have less than Bill Gates has today.
Game over. Nerd wins.
