“The Last Dance”: Michael Jordan’s new documentary 0:56
(CNN) – NBA superstar Michael Jordan may have retired years ago, but his presence off the court remains as strong as ever.
The former Chicago Bulls star has been out of the spotlight since he left basketball nearly two decades ago. So much so, that he once turned down a staggering amount of money for a two-hour appearance at an event, his former agent said this week.RELATED

David Falk appeared on WFAN’s “Boomer and Gio” where he talked about how demanding his famous client was when it came to projects.
“I brought you a deal three years ago for $ 100 million. All he had to do was, aside from giving his name and presence, make a two-hour appearance to announce the deal and he turned it down, “Falk said Wednesday, without providing additional details about the deal.

“God bless you. It has been so successful that it gives you an opportunity to do what you want or not do things you don’t want to do. I really admire it. He is very, very selective in the things he wants to get involved in. “
Jordan made headlines last month after his documentary “The Last Dance” was released. The ESPN series premiered on April 19 and will air on Sunday nights for five weeks through May 17.
The Chicago Bulls of the 1990s, led by Jordan, remain one of the largest dynasties in the history of the sport. The ESPN series features never-before-seen footage from the 1997-98 season, along with interviews from a star-studded cast.
