Which NBA star turned out to have the best post-NBA career?

jordan-barkley-1993Another ExNBA.com poll has wrapped up, and it’s time to sum up the results. The question of this poll was “Who turned out to have best post-NBA career?”

Hall of Famer, NBA legend Michael Jordan is the first, having gathered 57 percent of all votes. Jordan’s legacy continues to stand the test of time. He played in total 1072 NBA games (1039 started), averaging 30.1 ppg, 6.2 rpg in 38.3 minutes per contest. He was a 14-time NBA All-Star, and a 6-time the NBA champion with the Chicago Bulls. As good as Jordan was on the court, he was just as good off the court, making a fortune with his business ventures and endorsements.

Second place in the poll was taken by Earvin “Magic” Johnson, the LA Lakers legend, a Hall of Famer, with 18 percent of all votes. Today, Johnson is known as a businessman, who also devotes a lot of time, money and energy to various charities and communities. It should be noted that a May 2015 poll on ExNBA has revealed that the basketball fans are more likely to do business with Magic Johnson (37 percent of all votes), than Shaquille O’Neal and Michael Jordan.

After retiring from the NBA, O’Neal found a new calling as an analyst for Inside the NBA. He also has a number of businesses he runs.

Charles Barkley, who currently works alongside O’Neal on Inside the NBA as an analyst gained 9% of all votes. Barkley, a Hall of Famer, is considered to be one of the best power forwards ever to play in the NBA.

The remaining 3% of votes were given to “None of them, other” option.
