Here's Why Michael Jordan Once Turned Down $100M For A Two-Hour Appearance

No matter the size of the bag, Michael Jordan is picky about his time, and rightly so!
The six-time NBA champion is not only a sports and cultural icon, but Jordan is also quite the businessman.
I mean, if you just look at Nike and the power his influence has had on the company, one can only imagine that people will pay to use the former Chicago Bulls star's name and likeness.

"I got him a $100 million deal three years ago. And all he had to do was give his name and picture, show up for an hour or two to announce the deal, and he declined," said David Falk, Jordan's former agent.
Though he didn't disclose what the deal was and what exactly caused Jordan to turn down millions of dollars for a seemingly short period of his time, Falk said his admiration for the superstar changed after the incident.
The power of alignment
"God bless him," Falk added. "He's been so successful that he has the ability to do whatever he wants or not do what he doesn't want to do. I really admire that. He's very, very selective about what he wants to be involved with."
The price of being "like Mike".
Earlier, Jordan opened up about the responsibility that came with everyone's desire to "be like Mike."
"If I had to do it again, there's no way I want to be considered a role model," he said during his 2020 docuseries The Last Dance. "It's like a game stacked against me. There is no way I can win.”
Michael Jordan Net Worth
According to Forbes, Jordan has an estimated net worth of $1.7 billion.
From clothes and shoes to building the empire known as the Jordan Brand, the 59-year-old sports legend has reached a level of success that allows him to stay away from anything that doesn't align with who he is.
