The Top 5 Richest NBA Players

1. Michael Jordan

Michael Jeffrey Jordan is at the top of our list, as you have probably already guessed. He is a former American professional NBA (National Basketball Association) player and businessman who is also well-known by his initials, MJ.

.The Charlotte Hornets of the NBA and 23XI Racing on the NASCAR Cup Series are the main owners and sources of his wealth, respectively.

Including that, MJ controls about 10% of Jordan Brand’s sales, which is a significant amount given how popular the company is and how high its stock prices are.

His wealth hasn’t diminished despite his two marriages and five children; we suppose having a supportive family does count for something.

Jordan’s lucrative endorsement contracts with Nike, his biggest sponsor, account for the majority of his enormous net worth.

3. Magic Johnson

On number three, we have Earvin “Magic” Johnson Jr., a former American NBA player.

When Johnson was a student at Everett High School, he was first referred to as “Magic.” Additionally, a sportswriter who had just witnessed the 15-year-old prospect score 36 points, 16 rebounds, and 16 assists gave him the moniker.

The Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association once had Magic as their head of basketball operations.

Johnson presently works with Fridays, Starbucks, and 24-Hour Fitness. He has also owned the Lakers, Sparks, Dodgers, and LA Football Club in the past.

After retiring, he founded Magic Johnson Enterprises and expanded to operate a variety of movie theaters, fast food outlets, health clubs, real estate, and other businesses. As a result, he has become a very successful entrepreneur.

Magic Johnson had to announce his retirement because, at the time of his HIV diagnosis, people still believed that the disease was a surefire way to die.

He and his wife are currently traveling throughout Europe on a $150 million super-yacht called “Aquila,” which they are renting for about $1 million per week.

It seems like Magic knows how to manage his wealth.

LeBron’s estimated net worth is $500 million. In addition, CBS Sports predicts that if his recent success in both business and basketball continues, he will likely surpass the $1 billion mark by the year 2022.
