Jordan doesn’t need to force himself to attend events he doesn’t want to, because money is not an issue for him. A typical example is how Jordan refused an event with a salary of 100 million USD (about 2,453 billion VND) in 2 hours.

The story is told by David Falk, Jordan’s representative. Speaking to WFAN, Falk said: “A few years ago, Jordan turned down an invitation to play golf when he went to Asia to play a pre-season match with the Charlotte Hornets. A woman in the Philippines offered me 7 million USD to invite Jordan to attend a golf tournament for 1 day, but he refused. Even 3 years ago I received an offer worth 100 million USD. He just allowed his name to be used and appeared in a launch ceremony that lasted about 2 hours. But Jordan did not accept.”

Jordan is one of the icons of the sports industry, beyond the borders of basketball. He is recognized as one of the greatest and most famous athletes in history. Jordan is the idol of many young generations around the world. Therefore, inviting Jordan to attend the event is a better opportunity to promote the brand.

So many businesses spare no money to invite the King of Basketball to attend events, but not everyone receives Jordan’s nod. Finances are not a problem for Jordan. According to Front Office Sports statistics  , Jordan is paid 256 million USD from Nike in 2022 alone. Therefore, Jordan has the right to refuse invitations that he is not interested in.
