 aired in 2020 amid the pandemic, and it gave everyone a sliver of hope in trying times. Due to its huge success, everyone was wondering how much Michael Jordan earned from it, but the answer might surprise you.

Michael Jordan’s Last Dance earnings

The show’s main protagonist, , earned a paycheck of $4 million. Meanwhile, for Disney+, it was a massive success. The gamble to push the airing date to April 2020 was a genius move. People were cooped up in their homes, and seeing a story about a 90s hero and legend proved to be what they desperately needed at that time. All sports-related activities around the world came to a halt due to Covid-19, and The Last Dance quenched everyone’s thirst for sports entertainment.

Around 5.6 million viewers tuned in per episode. The docu-series had ten episodes which translated to 24 million global viewers in a month for Netflix. Its success set the blueprint for how a sports docu-series should be done. Even after the last episode of The Last Dance aired, people still talk about it. MJ’s peers and friends all had something to say, and not all were nice. Many accused Jordan of using them for his benefit. Mike earned $4 million for the series, and none of them were paid for their interviews or appearances.

In reality, out of the $4 million paycheck, zero went into the  legend’s bank account. He received zero because he . MJ is no stranger to helping charities and organizations - he even pledged to donate $100 million to help eradicate racism in the U.S.

Michael Jordan still benefitted from The Last Dance

With a $2.1 billion estimated net worth as of 2022, it’s clear Jordan didn’t lose sleep donating all his earnings from The Last Dance. So why did he agree to do it? Mike is a savvy businessman with a motive for his every move - he wants to push a personal agenda - to remind everyone that he is still the GOAT of basketball.

Everyone knows how competitive Mike can get, but fans appreciated his sacrifices to ensure his teammates were aligned with his goal: to win a championship. He didn’t care to be friends with his teammates; for Mike, if you’re not going to help him win a title, you shouldn’t be on his side.

As the GOAT debate became blurred in recent years with fans putting Kobe Bryant and LeBron James at the top with Jordan, The Last Dance reminded everyone that Mike is still the best to do it.
