Though Michael Jordan has retired from the NBA ,he  still remains one of the world’s most prolific influencers in the world. Having made his mark with the Jordan Brand.

In a recent podcast, Jordan’s former agent David Falk talked about the time when Michael Jordan declined a hard-to-top offer to attend a one-day golf event for just two hours:

“[Jordan] turned down a deal to do a one-day golf appearance when he was in Asia a few years ago for a pre-season game with Charlotte. And some woman in the Philippines offered me $7 million dollars [USD] for one day, wanted him to play in a golf tournament. And he turned it down. I brought him a deal three years ago for $100 million [USD]. And all he had to do, other than give his name and likeness, was make one two-hour appearance to announce the deal. And he turned it down.”

Jordan’s former agent David Falk did say, however, that it was difficult to convince Michael Jordan to make such an appearance since money was never the most prominent incentive. With the Jordan Brand as one of the most highly-coveted brands in the world money is not an aspect Michael Jordan  ever needs to worry about.
