Michael Jordan drew some pretty similar comments from fans after a photo showing him next to his wife, Yvette Prietto, at his 60th birthday party surfaced on social media this week.

The former Chicago Bulls superstar turned 61 in February, reminding many of his fans how long they’ve all been around. But a photo from his 60th bday has been doing the rounds on X since Wednesday and has attracted plenty of comments.

As is the case whenever something pertaining to Jordan or LeBron James comes up, the GOAT debate took off again, with some fans claiming the Los Angeles star is the greatest of all time because he is married to a black woman.

Michael Jordan Made Another Lavish Purchase Last Month

Michael Jordan is one of the wealthiest people on the planet. Having made millions from playing basketball, His Airness continues to rake in the dough through his sneaker line and recently sold his majority share in the Charlotte Hornets.

According to reports, he splashed the cash on another luxurious Florida mansion in late March. MJ is believed to have forked out $16.5 million for the residence, which is located in Jupiter’s Bear Club.

Property records show Airwayz founder and CEO Dr. Michael A. Murphy sold the mansion to the six-time NBA champion.

The property spans 9,100 square feet and is on an acre along a golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus. It houses five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a four-car garage, a gym, pool, spa, guesthouse, and clubroom.

Jordan and Prieto already owned a three-acre estate nearby before said purchase.
