According To Google, Jose Calderon Is A Billionaire


In March 2017, Jose Calderon signed with the Golden State Warriors. But, Warriors star Kevin Durant got injured the day before and Golden State already knew that the injury will force their star to sit out a minimum of four weeks. The Warriors also knew that they wanted to sign Matt Barnes as the player to fill the gap Durant was leaving behind. Instead of just not signing Calderon and saying: “Sorry, that’s some bad luck and timing”, the Warriors signed Calderon nontheless and waived him again two hours later.

Not only was this a nice gesture, it also meant that Claderon got paid. His two hour stint with the Warriors earned him $415,000 (the amount of money he was set to make for the rest of the season). Not too bad of a salary. That’s $207,500 per hour.

Who would’ve thought that $207,500 per hour wasn’t anything special for the Spaniard? According to Google, he’s a billionaire.

Due to a funny glitch, Calderon’s net worth is listed at $2.2 billion.



According to USA TODAY’s FTW, Google mistook the Cavs guard with a namesake.


“The Google results were picking the Forbes article for Jose and Francisco Jose Calderon Rojas. According to Forbes, they have a real-time net worth of $2.2 billion and inherited the fortune from their father, who co-founded FEMSa.”
