MJ Once Turned Down an Appearance That Would've Earned Him 100 million

Michael Jordan's agent tells a story on a New York radio show of just how selective MJ can be when it comes to endorsements and appearances. Unreal. I can't imagine a scenario where I turn down 100 million...but, I guess when you're a billionaire, you consider it. Read below:

His agent David Falk went on WFAN's "Boomer and Gio" Thursday and talked about the kinds of appearance opportunities and marketing deals Jordan has passed up on throughout his career. Falk said that the legend once turned down $100 million for a two-hour appearance, showing just how particular Jordan is with his time in the spotlight.

From the interview:

"I brought him a deal three years ago for $100 million. All he had to do was, other than giving his name and likeness, make a one two-hour appearance to announce the deal and he turned it down. God bless him. He's been so successful, it gives him an opportunity to do whatever the hell he wants or not to do things he doesn't want. I really admire that. He's very, very selective in the things he wants to be involved in."
