NBA Hall-of-Famer Michael Jordan has a net worth of $1.1 billion, as of 2015. Jordan's worth was derived from his salary when he was an NBA player, his endorsement contracts and his 2010 purchase of the NBA franchise, the Charlotte Bobcats, now known as the Charlotte Hornets.
The Nike Air Jordan line of apparel is believed to net over $100 million per year in royalties for Michael Jordan, although he nor his manager have confirmed this figure. His investment of $175 million in the Charlotte Hornets has increased dramatically since his purchase of the team. The team's value more than doubled from $275 million in 2010 to $700 million in 2015.
