An answer to the eternal question “Is it better to be a jock or a nerd？”
Michael Jordan will make over $300，000 a game： $10，000 a minute， assuming he averages about 30 minutes per game.
Assuming $40 million in endorsements next year， he'll be making $178，100 a day （working or not）！
Assuming he sleeps 7 hours a night， he makes $52，000 every night while visions of sugarplums dance in his head.
If he goes to see a movie， it'll cost him $7.00， but he'll make $18，550 while he's there.
If he decides to have a 5 minute egg， he'll make $618 while boiling it. He makes $7，415/hr more than minimum wage （after the wage hike）。
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 his tax deferred account （401k）， he will have hit the federal cap of $9500 for such accounts at 8：30 a.m. on January 1st， 1998.
If you were given a tenth of a penny for every dollar 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 while the Boston Marathon is being run.
While the common person is spending about $20 for a meal in his trendy Chicago restaurant， he'll pull in about $5600.
Next year， he'll make more than twice as much as all of our past presidents for all of their terms combined. Amazing isn't it？
Jordan will have to save 100% of his income for 270 years to have a net worth equivalent to that of Bill Gates.
