The answer to the eternal question "Is it better to be a jock or a

Michael Jordan makes over $300,000 a game. That = $10,000 a minute,
at an average 30 minutes per game. With $40 million in Endorsements,
he makes $178,100 a day, working or not. If he sleeps 7 hours a night,
makes $52,000 every night while visions of sugarplums dance in his head.

If he goes to see a movie, it will cost him $7.00, but he will make
$18,550 while he's there. If he decides to have a 5 minute egg, he'll
$618 while boiling it. He makes $7,415/hr more than minimum wage.

He'll make $3,710 while watching each episode of Friends. If he wanted
to save up for a new Acura NSX ($90,000) it would take him a whole 12
hours. If someone were to hand him his salary and endorsement money,
they would have to do it at the rate of $2.00 every second.

He'll probably pay around $200 for a nice round of golf, but will be
reimbursed' $33,390 for that round. Assuming he puts the federal
maximum of 15% of his income into a tax deferred account (401k), he

If you were given a penny for every 10 dollars he made, you'd be living
comfortably at $65,000 a year. He'll make about $19.60 while watching
the 100 meter dash in the Olympics. He'll make about $15,600 during the
Boston Marathon. While the common person is spending about $20 for a
meal in his trendy Chicago restaurant, he'll pull in about $5600.

This year, he'll make more than twice as much as all U.S. past
for all of their terms combined. Amazing isn't it?

However, if Jordan saves 100% of his income for the next 250 years,
he'll still have less than Bill Gates has today. Game over. Nerd wins.
