In the end, Nike had to pay the fines but it did boost the shoes sales somehow after a month later with the 2 million of pairs being sold out. The revenue was impressive though that during the first year of sales, the company managed to earn $100 million. Thanks to Michael Jordan! The shoes sales go crazy up to this day with the sales of more than $2.5 billion.
In 2014, Michael Jordan increased his earning by taking the ownership of Bobcats. He bought the stocks from Robert Johnson, BET Founder, for $175 million. The estimation worth $600 million with a rough net worth of him around $1 billion.
