Learning More About Him

You don’t have to search too far to try and understand more about Michael Jordan, his life, and his career. After all, he’s one of the biggest names in the game. A new documentary highlighting his career with the Chicago Bulls, however, has since given us unprecedented new access to unseen footage of his time on the court and behind-the-scenes, as well as untold stories and interviews with those who have worked with him in the past.

Speaking to His Agent

In light of the heat surrounding The Last Dance documentary, his agent David Falk has also appeared on various news and radio stations to talk about the unseen footage. It was during one interview with WFAN’s Boomer and Gio interview that he let loose certain nuggets of information about Jordan’s business deals. He noted that he offered the basketball star a gig where he could earn $100 million for a two-hour appearance. However, Michael Jordan turned it down.

Doing What He Wants

Yes, Falk noted that “he’s been so successful, it gives him an opportunity to do whatever he wants or not to do the things he doesn’t want.” As if that wasn’t enough, it was also said that Jordan turned down $7 million to take part in a one-day celebrity golf tournament in Asia. It seems that the money isn’t a clincher for him anymore.

We always knew Michael Jordan was a legend in the game.
