Michael Jordan may have not played a minute of professional basketball in over 10 years, but that hasn't stopped him raking in big money since.
In fact, as revealed by Forbes, the NBA legend earned more in 2013 than any athlete (retired or currently active) save boxer Floyd Mayweather.
Thanks in large part to his sneaker deal with Nike, Jordan made an estimated $90 million last year.
Last year was so successful for Jordan that it actually eclipsed the money he made while playing in the NBA.
Jordan was paid $80 million during his last year with the Chicago Bulls (1997-98).
As mentioned, it is his partnership with Nike and the cash-cow that is the Jordan Brand which has helped him reach the pinnacle in terms of sports earnings.
Last year alone, Jordan Brand grew by 11% in the U.S. to $2.7 billion with one of every two pairs of basketball shoes sold in the country carrying the Jordan logo.
The 14-time All-Star also has deals with Gatorade, Upper Deck, Five Star Fragrances and Hanes.
