Ranked: Richest NBA players in the world, 2023

Michael Jordan

Mentioning sports that bring a great deal of wealth to athletes, basketball is undoubtedly at the top of that list. This sport enjoys great fame in the United States and is followed by many people in other parts of the world.

It’s projected that by 2023, the global market value of basketball will be a staggering $90 billion. This shouldn’t come as a shock, as NBA players, the highest level of basketball in the U.S., are among the wealthiest athletes globally.

Before considering individual players, it’s worth noting that the NBA created a total of over 10 billion U.S. dollars in income during the 2022–23 season. Each group in the association, on average, produced an annual income of around 209 million U.S. dollars. These figures make it obvious that the NBA is one of the most profitable sports in the world.

Those who have no knowledge of the NBA still recognize Michael Jordan as one of the most celebrated athletes in history. The NBA’s website hails him as “the greatest basketball player of all time” and it isn’t hard to see why. Jordan devoted 15 seasons of his career to the NBA, making remarkable accomplishments with the Chicago Bulls, including six championship wins.

Michael Jordan’s net worth in 2023 is an astounding $3 billion, making him the wealthiest NBA player globally. Additionally, he is part of the Basketball Hall of Fame and has won two gold medals representing the United States of America at the Olympics.
