Michael Jordan's mansion in Chicago has been on the market for eight years. The price? Well… it’s quite expensive.
Jordan's Chicago mansion remains available. The nine-bedroom, 10-bathroom luxurious house is now available for a whopping $14.855 million.
Jordan's 56,000 square foot Highland Park home includes a tennis court, a basketball gym, a putting green, and 14 parking spaces. The mansion was built in 1995 and its rental value is a solid $15,000 a month.
Initially, the asking price for the mansion was $29 million, but after not finding any buyer, the former basketball superstar reduced it to $21 million the following year. The price has gradually decreased over the years, but somehow the mansion still hasn’t been bought and Jordan keeps looking forward to selling it.
Jordan obviously isn't in a rush to sell the place, even though eight years have past and no buyer had shown up. The owner of the Charlotte Hornets is worth $2.1 billion, according to Forbes. The mansion can stay intact until somebody is willing to give Jordan a fair offer.
Forbes states that Jordan made $93 million in salary alone during his 15 NBA seasons. Also, Jordan earns over $100 million per year from Nike.
Jordan retired after the Bulls won their sixth championship in 1998 (their second three-peat of the decade). Dennis Rodman, Scottie Pippen, and head coach Phil Jackson (he had a falling out with general manager Jerry Krause) also departed. Jordan returned to the NBA four years later, playing the 2001-02 and 2002-03 seasons with the Washington Wizards before retiring for good.
This year, The Last Dance was released, an American sports documentary miniseries that revolves around the career of Michael Jordan, with particular focus on his final season with the Chicago Bulls. It was co-produced by ESPN films and Netflix an directed by Jason Hehir.
The documentary series received critical acclaim, with praise for its directing and editing. It also won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series at the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards.
