Michael Jordan: Who are you?

If you’ve never heard of His Airness, you’ve either been living under a rock or you’re below the age of 10.

Michael Jordan is one of the greatest sports figures of all time. He was six-time NBA champion and six-time NBA finals MVP. From 1984 through 1993 and then again between 1995 and 1998, his basketball career was with the Chicago Bulls. In that time he lead the Chicago Bulls to one of the most successful and dominant dynasties in NBA history.

Michael Jordan, aside from his professional playing career, is well-known for playing the role of himself in Space Jam's 90s animated cartoon. Jordan is also the founder of Jordan Sporting Clothing, which collaborates with Nike to produce the beloved Air Jordans.

Michael Jordan, now 57 years old is valued at $1.9 billion. Considering the basketball icon earned less than $100 million in his entire playing career he’s done an extraordinary job of promoting his brand.
