Do you know what happens when your favorite blogger finds an interesting factoid after mindlessly waltzing about the interwebs? You get a quiz.

The following is a list of the top five NBA players’ earnings from endorsements:

Lebron James — $52 million

Stephen Curry — $42 million

Kevin Durant — $33 million

James Harden — $20 million

Russell Westbrook — $19 million

Here comes the quiz:

Given those figures, how much do you figure that Michael Jordan, who retired from basketball in 2003, earns from endorsements?

<“Final Jeopardy” theme song>

If you guessed $145 million, you guessed right.

The comedian Chris Rock once said: “Here’s the difference between being rich and being wealthy: Shaquille O’Neal is rich. The man who signs his paychecks is *wealthy*.”

Michael Jordan is *wealthy*
