The lead actor from city of God was given the choice of 10 thousand dollars or like a percentage of all sales ...

He took the 10 , movie went onto be a cultural phenomenon, but it's hard to vindicate that when you need to put food on the table today

equivalent to about half a million today

at the time, 10% of nike must have been worth significantly less, or the offer would not have been made

Hindsight is 20/20 though.

Who would've thought Nike would become the company it is today back in 1973?

Take a look at this from Wikipedia:
In 1964, in its first year in business, BRS sold 1,300 pairs of Japanese running shoes grossing $8,000. By 1965 the fledgling company had acquired a full-time employee, and sales had reached $20,000. In 1966, BRS opened its first retail store, located at 3107 Pico Boulevard in Santa Monica, California next to a beauty salon, so its employees no longer needed to sell inventory from the back of their cars. In 1967, due to rapidly increasing sales, BRS expanded retail and distribution operations on the East Coast, in Wellesley, Massachusetts.

By 1971, the relationship between BRS and Onitsuka Tiger was nearing an end. BRS prepared to launch its own line of footwear, which would bear the Swoosh newly designed by Carolyn Davidson. The Swoosh was first used by Nike on June 18, 1971, and was registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on January 22, 1974.
Basketball players weren't extremely rich back in the 70s - the average salary was like $35k a year. So that $100,000 looks extremely tempting when compared to a company wasn't even known as Nike until 1971 - they were known as Blue Ribbon Sports before that.

No way he could've known Nike would become a behemoth, but he was already a NBA player at the time so he should've taken that ownership stake. He could've made up that $100K as part of his NBA contracts.

Anybody ever read Phil Knight’s book Shoe Dog? They were holding Nike together with tape and glue back then. You don’t know what you don’t know. If we could all only live in hindsight....
