I admit, the first thing I thought about when I heard NBA legend Michael Jordan proposed to his longtime girlfriend is why?

After his previous marriage to ex-wife Juanita ended because of his reported infidelity, MJ walked away a lot lighter in the pockets. According to some estimates, Juanita left the marriage $300 million richer, while many men, predictably, cried foul.

But it seems Jordan is a romantic at heart. He popped the question to his girlfriend Yvette Prieto while on holiday in Monaco and some say the ring is worth seven figures.

MJ, whose shoes have been causing riots across the country, reportedly made $60 million this year and I assume the new Mrs. Jordan will be asked to sign a pre-nup, but you never know.

I guess old dogs do learn new tricks?
