During the last fiscal year, Jordan Brand made just north of $3 billion.

In case you were wondering whether or not Michael Jordan, who won six rings with the Chicago Bulls, is a very wealthy man, this should be all you ever need to hear.

There’s a reason Michael Jordan is estimated to be worth about $2 billion, and it has very little to do with contract money made in the NBA.

It has virtually everything to do with who Michael Jordan is as a brand. Despite not playing in nearly two decades, people still want to rep his name, image and brand.

Something tells me this will be the first of many fiscal quarters that Michael Jordan’s apparel brand earns more than $1 billion.
