Michael Jordan is on the Forbes list of billionaires for the first time.
Since he retired a decade ago, he has built one of the most successful, lucrative careers we’ve ever seen from a former athlete.
From sprawling houses to custom planes to his own golf course, he’s clearly enjoying life after hoops.
He has a private jet. It's painted Carolina blue, and the ID number contains his jersey number (23) and number of titles (6).
He's reportedly going to build a private golf course because he's annoyed by the pace of play at his current country club.
He's currently in the process of selling his compound in Chicago, which was originally listed for $29 million.
He travels with a security team when he goes overseas. His secret codename is 'Yahweh,' a Hebrew word for God.
At age 52, he still works out. In 2013, he told ESPN he was trying to get down to his playing weight of 218 pounds.
He's also really good at Bejeweled. He beat level 100 and became a Bejeweled Demigod according to ESPN.
His post-basketball career is already influencing the next generation. Kevin Garnett is now talking about following in MJ's footsteps and buying the Timberwolves.
