MJ’s original deal with the shoe makers was worth about half a million a year and that relationship has been so beneficial to both parties that they now pay him over million a year to endorse the brand and wear the Jordan shoes under his extra baggy ripped jeans.After his 5th season, the Bulls re-signed MJ to a 8-year deal worth million, which also qualifies as a deal of a century, although, every deal with MJ in the 80s and early 90s basically was a deal of a century.This included Quaker Oats’ 10- year .5-18 million deal to make MJ the face of their Gatorade drink; It’s hard to imagine MJ and Gatorade not being a couple but Coke was actually the first drink to wine and dine him and then they made the mistake of being outbid by the Oatmeal makers. Some are better than others, but it's just not a job that allows any of us to be perfect. It requires too many different skills, from tenderness to absolute resolve.And even if there were such a thing as a perfect father, our children would still slip out of our careful reach, because that's the natural order of things: One day we won't be their fathers anymore.If nothing else, his father must have given him a share of his swagger.
