# Jocks vs. Nerds

The answer to the eternal question, “Is it better to be a jock or a nerd?”

Michael Jordan made over \$300,000 a game. That equals \$10,000 a minute, at an average of 30 minutes per game. With \$40 million in endorsements, he made \$178,100 a day, working or not.

If he sleeps 7 hours a night, he makes \$52,000 every night while visions of sugarplums dance in his head.

If he goes to see a movie, it’ll cost him \$7.00, but he’ll make \$18,550 while he’s there.

If he decides to have a 5 minute egg, he’ll make \$618 while boiling it. He makes \$7,415/hr more than minimum wage.

He’ll make \$3,710 while watching each episode of Friends. If he wanted to save up for a new Acura NSX (\$90,000) it would take him a whole 12 hours.

If someone were to hand him his salary and endorsement money, they would have to do it at the rate of \$2.00 every second.

He’ll probably pay around \$200 for a nice round of golf, but will be reimbursed \$33,390 for that round.

Assuming he puts the federal maximum of 15% of his income into a tax deferred account (401k), he will hit the federal cap of \$9500 at 8:30 a.m. on January 1st.

If you were given a penny for every 10 dollars he made, you ‘d be living comfortably at \$65,000 a year.

He’ll make about \$19.60 while watching the 100 meter dash in the Olympics.

He’ll make about \$15,600 during the Boston Marathon. While the common person is spending about \$20 for a meal in his trendy Chicago restaurant, he’ll pull in about \$5600.

This year, he’ll make more than twice as much as all U.S. past presidents for all of their terms combined.

Amazing isn’t it?

However, if Jordan saves 100% of his income for the next 250 years, he’ll still have less than Bill Gates has today.

Game over. Nerd wins.
