>Jordan fell just short of $1B on an inflation-adjusted basis while active. But thanks to massive $$ in retirement w/Nike's Jordan Brand soaring, MJ career earnings now ~$2B (not adjusted for inflation).

>Soaring NBA salaries will create a new crop of players earning $1B. Luka Doncic is looking at $700+ million in salary alone by the time he is 36 if remains star & salary cap keeps going
