Jordan plans to donate the proceeds — estimated to be between $3 million and $4 million — to charity, according to Forbes.

$0: The amount Jordan will bank from ‘The Last Dance.’ He’s donating his entire share of the proceeds, which should reach at least $3 million to $4 million, to charitable causes.”

It’s unclear what charities will benefit from the documentary.

According to Bleacher Report, this means that “while Jordan won’t directly benefit financially as a result of ‘The Last Dance,’ he’s likely to collect less tangible rewards.”

  • Specifically, the documentary will serve as a reminder to Jordan’s legend. The documentary “will serve as a reminder of why he’s almost universally considered the greatest basketball player of all time,” according to Bleacher Report. Younger audiences will get a fresh look at Michael Jordan’s accolades, too.

Jordan is reportedly worth $2.1 billion, according to Business Insider.
