Michael Jordan was a star of the ’80’s and a superstar in the ’90’s.
His name was synonymous with the 1990s, and many fans still remember his first NBA championship game performance in 1994.
Jordan has been at the center of a fashion scandal that has drawn national attention for its apparent manipulation of data and data collection to target an individual’s salary.
Jordan’s salary was determined using data provided by a former Nike executive and is estimated to be at least $6 million.
In an effort to boost his own stock, Jordan also paid his former Nike chief executive, Bob Johnson, $4.7 to $5 million.
Johnson resigned from Nike in 2015 after allegations that he manipulated data and paid employees in a manner that affected Nike stock price.
He pleaded guilty to a federal charge in April.
The story of the “big money man” caught on tape has ignited the ire of the fashion industry.
A former Nike employee said that the data and salary data was used to target individual’s job security and to manipulate Nike stock prices.
In a statement, Johnson and his lawyer said that their client is innocent of the allegations.
