His latest sneaker, the Gamma Blue, caused riots and made an estimated $US74 million in revenue IN ONE DAY.
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 recently dropped $US2.8 million on an awesome house near Charlotte, so he can be around his team.
He's currently in the process of selling his compound in Chicago, which was originally listed for $US29 million.
He travels with a security team when he goes overseas. His secret codename is 'Yahweh,' a Hebrew word for God.
He's also really good at Bejeweled. He beat level 100 and became a Bejeweled Demigod according to ESPN.
He's far from retired. He's currently trying to turn around the Bobcats, who were the worst team in the league last year.
