Michael Jordan is Officially a Billionaire

NBA legend Michael Jordan is officially a member of the billionaire boys club. The 51-year-old former Chicago Bulls star just added hundreds of millions of dollars to his personal wealth by increasing his ownership in the Charlotte Hornets from 80% to 89.5%. Before expanding his portfolio Jordan had a net worth of $750 million.

From Forbes.com:

Jordan first became an investor in the Hornets (then the Bobcats) in 2006 and became the controlling owner in 2010 when he bought out Robert Johnson for $175 million. Sports bankers say the Hornets are presently worth between $600 million and $625 million. The Milwaukee Bucks sold for $550 million in May, and they are considered the least valuable team in the league.

Our net worth figure for Jordan uses the $600 million figure. The Hornets have $135 million of debt, which makes Jordan’s equity in the team worth $416 million. After subtracting all the cash Jordan has invested in the team, we estimate his net worth outside of the Hornets to be $600 million, giving him a net worth of a $1 billion.

      ===========
      Loyalty is HUGE with Honey Dip- he's a Gemini. I think I'm going to say something. Dude shouldn't have put me in that position. What did he expect to gain from his revelation? Me telling him that I feel the same way? Me saying that we can see where things go? If I did react in that way, that wouldn't be okay on either of our parts.

Stupid of me, I let dude come to my hotel room because he said he needed to have a workspace (he doesn't have any furniture or internet in his place yet) for about 30 minutes. Then, I walked on his back because he asked me to :facepalm: Why must I be so naive!

      Oh well, if Honey Dip found out in any other way it would be bad news bears. I don't regret telling him, but I shouldn't have allowed dude in my room last night.
