NBA players and pundits don’t always give Michael Jordan the respect he deserves. 

But you won’t find any NBA player that is bringing in the money like this. 

Michael Jordan proves once again why he is the greatest player of all time with one move no one payday no one saw coming. 

Michael Jordan was one of a kind

It’s not uncommon for the young bucks to think they are the greatest thing since sliced bread. 

And that’s especially true for sports. 

Young players, and the sports media, today think that the generations before them wouldn’t stand a chance on the playing field. 

But we all know that isn’t the case. 

Just look at the media’s obsession with comparing Lebron James to Michael Jordan. 

No matter how many times people try to claim that Lebron James is the greatest of all time in the NBA, it is far from the truth. 

We all know that Lebron James isn’t the greatest of all time, let alone even a top 5 player of all time in the NBA. 

Today’s game has less competition compared to the 80s and 90s. 

When Michael Jordan was wrecking the NBA, the League was filled with hall of famers who would dominate the game today. 

And if you watch Lebron James for just one game, you realize quickly that he isn’t a leader by any stretch of the imagination. 

No one was a better leader on the court than Michael Jordan. 

When Michael Jordan demanded greatness from his teammates, they stepped up to the plate. 

And when his team needed a lift, he did whatever was necessary to win the game. 

But now we have another distinguishing factor to separate Michael Jordan from Lebron James: how much money their memorabilia is worth. 

That’s ALOT of money for a card

The news started to break over the weekend that history was just made with one sale of a 2003 Michael Jordan card. 

A 2003 Upper Deck Ultimate Collection autographed Michael Jordan Logoman card, which was card one of one, just set records for how much was sold this past weekend at auction. 

The internet nearly broke at the news that this one-of-a-kind Michael Jordan card went for a staggering $2,928,000 at auction.

To put that into perspective, with the average American earning around $63,000 a year and working for 40 years, the average American will earn about $2,500,000 in their lifetime. 

And in the two years with the Wizards, in the 2001-2002 season, Michael Jordan’s contract was worth only $2,000,000. 

So, this one autographed card went for nearly a million dollars over what he was paid the two years preceding when the card was signed, in 2001 and 2002, with the Wizards. 

This just goes to show the pull and influence Michael Jordan has over two decades after he left the NBA. 

We all know that Lebron James will not know what it is like to have that level of influence after he is long gone from the NBA.
