Michael Jordan now has equity stake in DraftKings, also will be advisor

Michael Jordan, you may have heard of him, he’s the guy that Shannon Sharpe and the rest of the Lebron James stuperfriends constantly tear down in order to prop up Lebron, is now part of DraftKings.

The greatest player to touch an NBA court is taking an equity stake in the sports betting and gambling company in exchange for becoming a special advisor.

A news release on the matter has this to say:

Michael Jordan is among the most important figures in sports and culture, who forever redefined the modern athlete and entrepreneur,” said. The strategic counsel and business acumen Michael brings to our board is invaluable, and I am excited to have him join our team.”

Jason Robins, DraftKings co-founder and CEO

Jordan will provide input to the company’s board of directors such issues as company strategy, product development, diversity, and equity amongst other prime initiatives.
