Scottie Pippin Made $20 Million More Than Michael Jordan In NBA
April 22, 2020
One of the revelations of the first two episodes of ESPN'sThe Last Waltz was how underpaid Scottie Pippen was compared to Michael Jordan. But it turns out that Pippen actually out-earned MJ over the course of his career.
It's true - over 17 seasons, Pippen earned roughly $109 million from NBA contracts, compared to $89 million over 15 seasons for Jordan. Of course, that doesn't include Jordan's massive sponsorship deals with brands like Nike, McDonalds, and Hanes.
After the episode aired, Pippen's wife Larsa responded by tweeting a photo of her husband's career earnings total with the caption "Thx for your concern Scottie did ok".
