is michael jordan not credited for making all these guys rich though? i mean he obviously made basketball a lot more mainstream then it was. hes talked about or was talked about as being the most recognizable athlete in the world. tiger for example got everyone paid, from last place to some guy doing analysis.
You are correct but you need to put it in a proper context. MJ made himself super rich and the by product of that was making the NBA more lucrative and the players making more money. MJ couldn't give a rats a.ss about those other players.

Example: when MJ came back in 95 he was making around $30M a season on year-to-year contracts. Still no one ever has made that much. But Pippen on the other hand was making less than Toni Kukoc, less than $5M/year. You think MJ stepped up and said, "wait a minute me and Pip won 3 chips for y'all and this foreign no name Kukoc ain't done sh*t. Pay Pip what he's do!"

Hell naw! MJ just kept collecting checks and kept his mouth shut and earned more money. MJ only cares about MJ and I'm not saying he's wrong but you can't write sh*t like you did insinuating he did it for the better of the league and the players. He did it for the better of MJ.

A couple reason, he wanted to make sure he kept the core team when he was winning championships in the 90's plus he was making triple off of endorsements than his NBA checks, in Washington, which I do not count , he donated his small salary to charity.


this is not true

Jordan got paid so little early because he signed a ridiculously long contract with the team when he was young, so he ended up being underpaid for most of his career. When he was able to get a bigger contract, he did and was getting paid 30+ million a season

Scottie did the same thing if you look at his salary history. It wasnt about keeping the team together. FOH with that bullsh*t

Jordan dont even care about the percentage real talk

he just wants the lockout to continue so Kobe can miss a season and maybe not surpass him. . .

naw folk actually both Jordan & Pippen were pissed off at da whole Kukoc situation before he even arrived & definitely let ERRYBODY know how they felt. Krause fat a.ss wuz talkin up Kukoc damn near 2 years in advance & bein an advanced scout besides his GM duties only made sh*t worse. he scouted obsessively over Kukoc and acted like he won a damn prize when he handed that boy his big contract


Mike only aint speak up for Scottie but for Phil too cuz he aint have no deal in place at da time & they thought obviously it wuz criminal. Krause played hard ball n/h wit his big three and lost heavy mayne. ended up returnin from da lock out wit no Jax and hella bums. be clear though mayne Mike spoke up for Scottie ya dig
