Michael Jordan is making way more money now than he ever did playing basketball

That's a hell of a lot of runners.

Michael Jordan is a basketball legend.

He is one of the all-time greats and made a serious amount of money when involved in the NBA. He made $94m throughout his career which isn't a bad few days at the office at all.

However, this figure is dwarfed when you see how much he has made from his signature 'trainers', 'runners' or 'sneakers'.

The Nike Air Jordan has been around for a long time and will be around for an even longer time when the business heads realise that making $100m in just one year, as reported by Bleacher Report, is a good thing.

One year.
