Michael Jordan is worth a lot of money. That's a surprise to no one.

But, exactly how much money is MJ worth? A little less than a year ago, he officially hit the billion dollar mark. And today, Forbes named Jordan one of the richest billionaires in the world for the first time.

A good portion of MJ's fortune came from sneakers. Nike's Jordan Brand brought in about $2.25 billion in 2013, which personally made MJ upwards of $90 million, according to Forbes. Currently, Jordan is the 1,741st richest person in the world. 

Despite MJ's latest financial milestone, he still has a ways to go before he catches Nike co-founder Phil Knight. The executive is currently ranked as the 35th richest person in the world with a net worth of $21.5 billion.
