What Is Larry Jordan Net Worth?

As not much is known about Larry Jordan and his job, there is little to no information about his net worth available. However, as per one report, Larry is apparently worth $1.1 million. While the number is not confirmed, it could also be because of who Michael Jordan is. The figure is in no way accurate, as Larry’s net worth is not yet available to be calculated.

Jordan is apparently worth $2.2 billion, making him one of the richest athletes ever. The 58-year-old NBA star is known to keep his family close, and could possibly be taking care of all his other siblings as well.

Jordan and Larry are part of a group of five siblings. Larry and James R Jordan Jr. are the eldest, followed by Jordan’s elder sister Deloris.

Michael Jordan is the fourth in line, followed by their youngest sister, Roslyn. Reports also add that he had two children, Alexis and Justin. There is no information available on their mother or about Larry’s current relationship status.

A look at Larry’s Career

Unfortunately, one cannot know what Larry does professionally, which in turn adds to his net worth not being easily available.

While nothing is known about his current job, Jordan himself has spoken about Larry being an excellent basketball player. However, he chose to not pursue the sport professionally like his younger brother. Back in 1999, when Jordan was seen as NBA’s best, he spoke about his brother Larry being the ‘toughest’ person he’d faced.

According to the Bulls legend, Larry was “far better” than him. In fact, around 17 universities and baseball clubs wanted Larry to join them. But the elder son wanted to help out at home and decided against playing professionally. He ended up helping his parents and studying, while Jordan ended up pursuing his dreams of playing professionally.
