Jordan Increased Income Inequality on the Bulls while Making All the Players Wealthier

(Guest Post by Matthew Ladner)

Fun piece by Matthew Schonfield in the Journal today. Strangely the guys riding the pine on the Bulls in 1998 making four times as much as their equivalents in 1984 did not feel the need to bang on drums to protest income inequality. Also read Iowahawk’s particle physics/health care mashup.

    All articles about Michael Jordan should focus on this amazing fact: he’s the only person in human history to be best ever in world at something (playing basketball) and the demonstrably WORST ever in history a related something (being an NBA exec).

    Can you think of any other human who can make such a claim?
